Verizon’s personal Android Put on-powered smartwatch, the^( , has apparently, already been discontinued after simply 3 months and alter of being to be had. The Put on24 is “now not to be had” from Large Pink. I will’t recall to mind many gadgets in historical past with this type of brief existence, despite the fact that this watch went thru delays and wasn’t precisely essentially the most hyped.
