Verizon’s version of the LTE-equipped LG Watch Sport has been canceled, according to a report from Droid Life.

The Android Wear watch was originally announced to come in both AT&T and Verizon compatible versions, but the Verizon model was delayed, and now, completely canceled. As 9to5Google notes, all references to the Verizon variant have been deleted from LG and Verizon’s respective sites, and Verizon is offering refunds to customers.

While Verizon customers may be stuck without an LG Watch Sport, there are still other options for an Android Wear 2.0 watch — including the company’s own branded Watch24. Helpfully, Verizon is also offering customers who had pre-ordered the LG Watch Sport a $100 credit towards another smartwatch it sells (like the aforementioned Watch24) to make up for the cancellation.

Update May 16th, 3:00PM: Added information regarding Verizon’s $100 credit offer for canceled pre-orders.
