The G Watch Urbane is LG’s flagship smartwatch and is now available for purchase in India via Amazon. A seller released for sale both, silver and gold color options for a hefty Rs.29,990 ($472), although the actual price is supposedly even higher at Rs.35,000 ($550). That is a considerable premium over the already high $349 in the US, since for that price, you get the new high gloss metal body in gold or silver finish with premium leather belt.
Despite the cosmetics, it is essentially the G Watch R on the inside. One of the good things about the G Watch Urbane is it features Wi-Fi, so it can benefit from the new Wi-Fi features in the Android 5.1 update.
At the cost of a new fairly high end smartphone, the G Watch Urbane might not be so easy to sell.
It remins to be seen which will be LG’s official pricing for the device in India.
