Cellular support just hit for Google’s Android Wear line.

Google has announced that its Android Wear watches, which already feature Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, now feature cellular support.

The company has announced that the first Android Wear watch with cellular support is the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE.

Per Google’s press release:

The watch’s three buttons offer quick access to what you use most: your contacts list, the LG Health fitness app, and back to the watch face to see the time. Its high resolution 480 x 480 P-OLED display makes it easy to read important info, no matter where you are. And the built-in heart rate monitor helps you get more out of your workouts. US customers can buy the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition from AT&T and Verizon. And international customers will be able to buy it within the coming months. Supported features for the watch may vary, so please check with your carrier.

It’s unknown as to whether the second generation of the Apple Watch will feature cellular support, but stay tuned for additional details.
