Samsung Gear Live now available on the Play Store


Samsung Gear Live

Samsung’s Gear Live Android Wear smartwatch is now live and available to purchase directly from the Play Store for a mere $250 + delivery.

Based on the info showing on the Play Store, deliveries are to leave Google’s warehouse (probably in Hong Kong if previous deliveries are a reliable guide) by Monday 7 July. Ordering today, therefore, could see you with a Gear Live in your hands by Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

The difference between the Gear Live and LG’s G Watch is mainly to do with Samsung including a heart rate monitor, although the Gear Live does have a slightly smaller battery at 300 mAh compared to LG’s 400 mAh battery. Regardless of this difference, Samsung claims a full day’s battery life as well.

If your interested in buying the Samsung Gear Live smartwatch, you can click on the link below in the source field to have a look and purchase one! If you need some more convincing, have a look at some photos from a hands on at Google I/O.

Sure yes he was a fanboy for another technology company *cough* Apple *cough* but he has seen the error of his ways and is now very much an Android and Chrome related fanboy!

    I thought there would be plenty of G Watch vs Gear Live reviews and real life hands on reviews of them now that they were given out at IO. I was waiting on what the experts thought before jumping in … but things seem to be relatively quiet though?? I know you guys didn’t get one at IO (but you seem to have stolen one last night!) … but any thoughts as to why??
