LG pulls the plug on its smartwatch six days after launch.

The smartwatch was on full sale for around six days before LG pulled the plug, stating there was a problem which affected the “day-to-day functionality of the device”. After further investigation, the decision was made to cancel the rollout of the Urbane 2nd Edition LTE due to the complicated nature of the issue,” LG said in a statement issued to Android Police. “Whether the device will be available in the future will be decided at a later time.

For now, our top priority is to ensure that only products that meet our very specific quality standards are available for purchase.” The second edition of the Watch Urbane was the first smartwatch with mobile data connectivity and multiple function buttons, with inbuilt heart rate monitor and rounded 480 x 480 P-OLED display, the highest of any Android Wear-running smartwatch to date. Android Wear-running smartwatches have not had a good run of late, after independent analyst company Canalys claimed Apple has sold around 7m Apple Watches since the device’s launch earlier this year, a figure in excess of all other vendors’ combined shipments over the previous five quarters.

Its closest rival, Pebble, saw shipments reach 200,000 in the third quarter, the company said, thanks to the launch of its Time Steel smartwatch, made from stainless steel with a colour e-paper display.
