Since the smartwatch sports the latest Android Wear operating system, it includes features that help it untether from your smartphone, such as 4G/LTE connectivity, an on-watch version of the Google Play Store and Google Assistant.
In terms of hardware and build, the Wear24 has a 1.39-inch AMOLED display, 450 mAh battery, and an IP67 water resistance rating. However, it lacks other coveted features like a built-in GPS, heart rate sensor, swappable bands, NFC mobile payment technology or an equivalent to the Apple Watch's Digital Crown. Judging from product images, it has a simpler aesthetic than some of its more aggressive counterparts.
The Wear24 smartwatch will be available exclusively through Verizon. It retails for US$350 (or $300 with a two-year contract) and is available in steel, black and rose gold color variants.
