» LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition Recall Faulty Bad

Rhiannon Williams writing for The Telegraph:

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition, which was on sale for just six days before being pulled off shelves, contained a component with the potential to reduce image quality on the device, the company has confirmed.

The first edition was touted as an Apple Watch killer because, while looking like a cheap Timex, it was round and the Apple Watch isn’t. This one is still cheap looking but now it has two buttons in addition to the crown which is cool even though no one ever even uses the one button on the Apple Watch. Also, the buttons have grips on them for high-slip conditions like icing.

It’s perfectly¬†possible other smartwatches will overtake the Apple Watch at some point — it’s certainly not without its flaws — but right now it’s like the early days of tablets.
