Samsung always makes the different experiments on their lab and when the right time comes makes the grand appearance. We all know about the Google I/O conference held in San Francisco. In the event Samsung again made the bumper appearance. Samsung revealed their first android wearable named “Gear Live” during the I/O.

Before this wearable Samsung revealed the other smart watches Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Neo but the both wearables run Samsung’s own designed Tizen platform, but this wearable runs the Android interface instead of Tizen.

 The wearable has made the introductory appearance so we are unable to guess anything about its functions, but it is expected that the users who buy this smartwatch will have the good experience of new software interface in performance.

 Design and Display

The new wearable Samsung Gear Live follows the same design similar to Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Gear 2 Neo, this is the typical pattern followed by the Samsung for their wearable devices. We did not find any camera in Gear Live, Samsung changed the location of the home buttons and placed them in the side of the smartwatch instead of the bottom of the screen like galaxy Gear 2 Neo. The smartwatch is equipped with the heart rate sensor which is located in the back side of the watch.

The Gear Live has a 1.63 inch AMOLED display with 320x320 pixels resolutions. The resolution gives the 278ppi (pixel per inch) density. Presently this only information available, for more information we have to wait until the smartwatch will hit the markets.


The Gear Live run the Android operating system and that is the good step taken by the Samsung. User interface purely uses a Google card motif which is easy to use and navigate. The User Interface also provides the good use of the specifications embedded in the small display which seems convenient because it is easy to wear like a wrist watches and enough to have the necessary information with you all the time anywhere.

Processor and memory

Following the Korean trend, the Samsung Gear Live is equipped with 1.2GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and  512MB RAM is offered with 4GB in built memory. This is the small wearable device so the specifications like processor, RAM and memory are good enough to get the notifications anywhere.


The smartwatch is energized with 300 mAh battery giving 7 days stand by time to the users after full charge. The battery and stand by time is reasonable for this small functional device.

Color, Price and Release Date

 The device is available in two shiny colors Jet Black and wine red. Users have an open option to select one color from both according to their skin tone. The price fixed by the company is 199USD which is quite reasonable for this well balanced wearable smartwatch. The smartwatch is available for pre order for now and the product will arrive 7th July 2014 in the markets on wards. Users who want to buy Gear Live they can place the pre order via Google Play Google’s official stores.
