Google has announced that it is adding cellular support to its Android Wear platform and one of the first devices to have cellular support is the new LG Watch Urbane 2.
This is a feature that was announced a while back and it is excpected to be made available on other Android Wear devices.
Android Wear lets you stay connected, even when your phone isn’t with you. With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, for example, you can see who’s calling when your phone is in the next room, or respond to messages at the gym while your phone is at home. Today, we’re bringing cellular support to Android Wear, so you can stay connected in even more places.
No more worrying about Bluetooth or Wi-Fi—your watch will automatically switch to a cellular connection when you’re out of range. As long as your watch and phone are connected to a cellular network, you’ll be able to use your watch to send and receive messages, track fitness, get answers from Google, and run your favorite apps. And yes, you’ll even be able to make and take calls right from your watch, for when your hands are full, or your phone is elsewhere.
