The LG Watch Urbane 2 was notable among many other Android Wearables because of whats inside: a cellular radio. But due to an unidentified quality issue, LG is pulling the watch from stores, offering refunds, and cancelling the worldwide rollout.

The Watch Urbane 2 went on sale through AT&T last week, and was meant to be hitting Verizon stores today. AT&T customers who bought the device are being offered a refund, while Verizon apparently isnt delivering the watch to customers. LG hasnt said if or when it will ever go on sale.

Its a real shame that the Urbane 2 has been stillborn: whether it was good or not, it was something a little different in an Android Wear market thats already been stagnating. But even so, its a sound move from LG to acknowledge a problem and pull the device, rather than telling us we were all wearing it wrong.
