Google has announced that Android Wear will be getting cellular support, which means compatible devices will now be able to utilize cellular data to access the watch functions even when the phone is not around. It also brings calling functionality, so now you can create and receive calls on the watch itself. This means the watch will no longer be dependent on your smartphone, and can function fully without it, which is perfect for times when you want to leave your phone behind, such as when you are working out, but still want to stay connected.

The first Android Wear device to acquire cellular support is the LG G Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE, which has more words in its name than total Android Wear devices. It's a stunning looking watch nonetheless with a fully circular 1.38-inch 480x480 P-Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display, 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) Snapdragon 400 processor, 768Mega Bytes (MB) RAM, 4GB storage, LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, heart rate monitor, 570mAh battery, and IP67 certification.

The LG G Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE (sigh) will be available on AT&T and Verizon in the US. The international variant will be coming in a few months. Other manufacturers will also be coming with their own cellular compatible watches in future.
