Verizon’s smartwatch available May 11th

verizonThat’s right, Verizon is getting in on the wearables business. According to The Verge, the carrier recently announced that its $350 Wear24 smartwatch will be available online and in stores on May 11. Verizon is hoping the watch will prove a worthy competitor to LG’s bigger, bulkier Watch Sport and the Huawei Watch 2.

The device runs on Android Wear 2.0 OS and will have 4G LTE connectivity on Verizon’s network. It comes in stainless steel, gunmetal black, and rose gold. The Wear24 has a slightly bigger but more thin battery than its competitors mentioned above.

Smartwatches have not been as popular as projected when they first hit the market, and it is an interesting decision for Verizon to introduce a rather expensive device now. Time will tell if the watch can measure up in terms of performance.
