LG has an image problem
It was rolling out to AT&T stores across America and reviews were in progress but LG decided to stop selling the Watch Urbane Second Edition LTE earlier this month. And now we know why.
According to the Telegraph, the dramatic recall was because of image issues.
"What we can share is that the hardware issue was related to a new advanced component that we had incorporated in the device that had never been used in an LG wearable device before," LG said.
"During aggressive testing over thousands of hours under severe conditions, it was revealed that this component failed to meet LG's quality standards and could potentially impact our image quality over the life of the device."
Oh dear. We were so looking forward to updating our list of the best Android Wear smartwatches too.
