Samsung Gear Live smartwatch announced; available to order alongside LG G Watch later today

Google has just quickly revealed the Samsung Gear Live smartwatch during their Android Wear demo at Google IO, and while they didn’t go too in-depth regarding its features and looks (it looks like a typical square smartwatch, really), they did drop one bit of nice info: it’ll be available to order in the Google Play Store later today. Google also announced that the LG G Watch would be available to order right alongside it.

What we won’t get right away is the Moto 360, unfortunately — Google announced that it would be available later this summer (to which the crowd let out a series of disappointing laughs and grunts). We’re still digging for pricing and shipping information so stay tuned!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I hope the sdk, apks, apis, etc are available to convert the Galaxy Gear 1 to Android Wear.

  2. Seeing how Samsung switched some Gear to TIzen all of the sudden makes me not want to spend $150-$300 on their other Gear.

    1. Before Android Wear, Tizen was indeed the better OS for smart watches.

  3. The crowds reaction was hilarious. But I think it makes sense. No one would buy the G Watch or the Gear Live if the Moto was released at the same time.

    1. Well that’s not true is it. The Moto being more expensive would make some people choose the others. Plus despite the fact I think the Moto has a slightly better aesthetic I simply prefer the more rectangular UI.

      1. I agree. I shouldn’t use blanket statements like “no one”.

  4. its called the Galaxy gear LIVE because the regular one is DEAD!!!!
