Smartwatches are gaining more and more territory and soon enough they will be able to totally replace a smartphone. The first step was made by Samsung, with the Gear S, one of the first wearables to feature a SIM card slot. Of course, LG didn’t waited too much and they joined the game.
According to the FCC database, an LG smartwatch with SIM support, with the description “Smart Watch + CDMA” will be introduced soon. Still, we have some bad news, as for the moment, we don’t know anything about a GSM model. Another source, anonymous this time, is pointing to Verizon as the only U.S. carrier that will sell the device.
Unlike the Gear S, the upcoming LG smartwatch will be based on Android Wear and, since it the testing finished at the end of August, we should be seeing the final variant hitting the shelves around October.
No details about the design or the price until now, but we expect to see a couple of borrowed features from the G Watch or why not, the G Watch R. As for the price, it will definitely be more than $250, considering its cellular capabilities.
