I have had the Verizon edition of this watch for 3 days now. Do yourself a favor. Do not buy this thing. I had waited and waited for this device to be available. As soon as my Verizon store had I got it. It has been noting but trouble. It has connection issues when working independently. Talked to Verizon technical support and they have no clue. Talked to LG they have less of a clue. The watch has no gps, no NFC. The only independent function it has is calling. None of the Google services work when it is in independent mode. Was told that the watch can take up to 3 minutes just go get a signal. I am going back to my Samsung gear S2 it may only run Tizen but at least it works.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2016who needs lte on watch ?
LTE is the new Mobile standart . In cities , the smaller LTE better.So far, the Watch can receive all the frequencies if needed.
Polen, 26 Mar 2016I think smart watch manufacturers should produce some with limited features and at lower price... moreits really useful when we have expensive phones and dont want rubbers steal them so we use smartwatches but i agree lower price is better. band are good too. i have mi band too but smartwatch is far better
Hi, I also want this watch. I've heard that the delivery begins end of May. The U.S. mobile providers accept pre-orders. In Europe, there is still no confirmation.
I'm waiting for it I can't belive I will get red of the smartphones weight finally
I think smart watch manufacturers should produce some with limited features and at lower prices. Many of the smartphone features are bettter used and accessible from smartphone or tablets. Up to date I have limited myself to purchasing a smart band, because festures in the smart band is what makes sense to be oiut of the phone such as monitoring sleep and movement.

Apps I have include Wear Media to play my 1 GB of music stored on the watch through bluetooth and Endomondo/Ghostracer to track my runs using GPS while listening to music through bluetooth without having to carry a phone. My calls are forwarded to the watch and I am paired through LTE so I still receive/send SMS from my phone when I leave the phone at home.
Hello, long time reader... 1st time contributer. as an owner of the original 2015 release of this watch (when it was first released for only 6 days), I can attest that my version works on every carrier including Verizon, where this new one only works on AT&T. This is why I feel that LG cancelled their sale took them back because most carriers (probably Verizon) were upset that they (user) can take the watch and move it around from carrier to carrier. this is only my personal opinion from experience as a real, current owner and daily user of the first gen watch, and also a tinker'r and hacker of wear software for use on android and bb passport

LG have withdraw this watch from sale as of today, 20th Nov 2015, with no indication if it will ever go back on sale. The are indicating "hardware issues" as the cause of the withdrawl. Some people actually have the watches. LG need to indicate what the hardware issue is to allow these people to decide wether to keep their watches or not!
You should update the watch description. This watch is not yet released anywhere (unfortunatelly). Can't wait to get my hands on this ... hope LG doesn't keep us waiting much longer.
