The Samsung Gear Live is an Android Wear-based smartwatch announced and released by Samsung and Google on June 25, 2014.
Released devices include Motorola Moto 360, the LG G Watch, and the Samsung Gear Live.

LG G Watch

It was released along with the LG G Watch as launch devices for Android Wear, a modified version of Android designed specifically for smartwatches and other wearables. JR Raphael of Computerworld preferred the Gear Live's illuminated display compared to the LG G Watch, more distinctive design and the heart-rate sensor but did not like the poor outdoor visibility, the hard to use charger, awkward watch band and that it includes a redundant preinstalled stopwatch application.
