Verizon's LTE-equipped LG Watch Sport has mysteriously been canceled

Well this isn't great news
Verizon LG Watch Sport canceled

While the LG Watch Sport has been available for months, the flagship Android Wear 2.0 watch had not yet made its way to Verizon's network. And now it seems like it never will, as the smartwatch's Verizon-equipped LTE edition has been canceled.

Customers who had pre-ordered the device received cancellation emails, as first spotted by Droid Life, and Verizon confirmed to Wareable that it has, in fact, been canceled on the network. It's unclear why the LG Watch Sport has been canceled on the Big Red network, but Verizon will be offering customers who pre-ordered it $100 off a smartwatch of their choice.

Essential reading: Tips and tricks for the LG Watch Sport

If you take a look at Verizon and LG's sites, you'll see every mention of the Verizon LTE-equipped Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch erased. So if you're in the mood for an LTE-enabled LG Watch Sport, the AT&T variant is the only option you've got. Wareable has contacted LG for comment, but has not yet heard back.

If you want a simple Android Wear 2.0 watch with Verizon LTE though, there is that Wear24 watch coming soon. We're sure that's just a coincidence though. The two watches really are incredibly similar; the Wear24 sports a slightly larger 450mAh battery, but it's a sliver thinner and sports a price tag that's $30 cheaper.
