Android Wear - Devices

Are you waiting for some new gadgetry to arrive today? Are you patiently refreshing the Aramex or Toll Priority tracking pages, waiting for the knock at the door? While the Moto 360 won’t be arriving today, a good many are likely to receive Samsung Gear Lives or LG G Watches today, and I think it’s fair to say we’re all pretty excited.

Have you received yours yet? Are you sitting by the front door still? Let us know in the comments below where you are (suburb-wise perhaps?) and whether your new toy has arrived yet.

None of ours have arrived just yet (as of 9am) but it’s still early in the day. Let us know when yours shows up and what you’ve ordered.

    Where the hell is it? Still waiting for mine! Western suburbs of Melbourne.

    It’s a personal thing I know… But I am so glad I changed my order to the Gear Live. This is one awesome piece of kit compared to my Sony. I was worried that I made the wrong decision but not any more. Can’t really see the pixels at all. Now to find out if I will indeed get a whole day out of it…

    I got the same… Fits my wrist beautifully! One of my normal analogue watches is way bigger than the gear live. Been playing with it for the last hour. It’s pretty awesome. Charging up now to see how the battery goes tomorrow. The only thing that concerns me is the band and how easily it could be flicked off.

    My band is very secure and comfortable. I understand the fear but I think the tension on the clips is going to keep mine extremely secure. Passed the shower test and it charges fast. Wish I had another charge clip for work! That is where I want to charge it but weekends mean that I have to remember to bring it home. I only intend to take it off for charging… Already passed the shower test and bed test. Thinking about buying another for an instant recharge switch over! Addicted. These things are going to be revolutionary.

    First full day with the watch and I am definitely less worried about the band. It does clip very securely. Some of my work is physical in a warehouse though so I will probably switch it for something that will stay closed like a normal watch band… Just to be sure. First day of use and more than happy with this watch… You’re right they are awesome… So convenient!

    Finally!! 5:35pm! It’s here… Lilydale, Victoria. Poor driver was so overworked I invited him in for a cold water! He still had 7 deliveries to go in neighboring suburbs.

    Mine arrived a little before 2pm. First impressions are that getting used to the swiping is a little odd… but it seems to work pretty well.

    My Gear Live arrived this morning at 8:30! Working really well so far.
    Still has a long way to go to catch up to Pebble’s functionality – but the design and integration with Android is streets ahead of Pebble.

    I can’t wait to get my Live – I’ve grown tired of my Pebble. Since the 2.x updates, the battery lasts about a day and a half. Email notifications are pointless on my HTC (“1 Email received” – that’s it) unless I use a third-party plugin like Pebble Notifiier. Even then, only one line of the email is visible on screen unless I scroll down.

    Just had one Toll guy come into the office. I thought it was my delivery so I let him go and when I opened the box I realized it was something else. So disappointed right now.

    Melbourne CBD, still waiting for my LG to arrive, tracking says Out for Delivery as of 9.35am this morning. I seem to recall when waiting for my Nexus 5, it wasn’t delivered until the afternoon, so hoping it’s not far away

    In Canberra. On a truck. Except I called Toll and asked them to hold it at the depot so I could pick it up. Not Happy Toll.

    In most cases, the courier company needs to attempt the delivery once before they will hold it. Silly I know, I’ve tried many times to get them to hold it.

    Mine won’t be here until tomorrow. Why do I not live in the eastern states? Got to play with a Gear Live last night though.
