Android Wear 2.0 was unveiled by Google today, and they focused the announcement on the software–along with two watches from LG. However, Verizon is also unveiling the Wear24 which is exclusive to the carrier.

The Wear24 features a circular 1.4-inch AMOLED display with 290 pixels per inch. A hallmark feature of Android Wear 2.0 is that you can make calls without being connected to a smartphone and the Wear24 has an LTE connection built-in. It also has a crown on the side, allowing for another way to interact with the watch.

Verizon built the device alongside Quanta, an electronics manufacturer. The Wear24 also has a 450mAh battery, NFC built-in, and IP67 water resistance. The design seems slim and more classy with a silver coloring.

No exact release date has been announced as of yet, but it will be $300 on contract or $350 with no contract. Verizon is expecting the Wear24 to go on-sale in March.
