It has been a while since Verizon announced that it will soon start selling its very own Android Wear-powered smartwatch. The carrier didn’t reveal much information about the smartwatch at that point in time but it’s following through today. Verizon has confirmed today that its Wear24 smartwatch is going to be released next month, on May 11th to be precise.

Verizon’s Wear24 smartwatch has a 1.39 inch circular display with a pixel density of 290 ppi. Verizon hasn’t shared the actual resolution of the display but it should come out to be 400×400.

The carrier hasn’t revealed much about the technical specifications as well aside from the fact that it features a 450mAh battery with wireless charging and that it’s IP67 rated for water resistance in up to 3.3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

The smartwatch comes with interactive and unique watch faces that users can customize to fit their needs. The watch faces can automatically change based on their location so they can set a more modern watch face for when they’re at the office and a fitness-focused option when they’re at the gym. The possibilities are endless.

Verizon’s Wear24 smartwatch is powered by Android Wear 2.0 so it offers a wide variety of features such as music streaming with Google Play Music, Google Assistant, apps from Google Play, and more.

The Verizon Wear24 will be available in Gunmetal Black, Stainless Steel, and Rose Gold colors starting May 11th. Verizon will sell it in-store and online for $349.99. Customers can pick it up for $299.99 with a new 2-year activation or add it to an existing Verizon Plan for $5 monthly access.
