Did you have your eye on one of those new LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition from AT&T? Well tough. LG just yanked the smartwatch from store shelves citing "a hardware issue which affects the day-to-day functionality of the device." The device was the first Android-based smartwatch to include a cellular connection. It had debuted on AT&T only a week ago and was supposed to come to Verizon tomorrow, November 20th. Nope, not any more.

There's no word on specifically why the watches were pulled or when/if they'll return. According to 9to5Google, Verizon will not ship to pre-order customers while AT&T has told its retail outlets to offer customers who have already purchased the 2nd Edition a full refund.
