We now have our goodies from Google I/O, LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live smartwatches. Before we get into the review process and really diving into what these devices do, we love to unbox and do hardware tours, just so you all know what to expect if you have ordered yours through Google Play already.
Both devices feature very similar specifications, with the G Watch sporting a 1.65-inch LCD (280×280) versus the Gear Live’s 1.63-inch AMOLED (320 x 320). The only real difference buyers should consider is battery life, the Gear Live’s built-in heart rate monitor, and overall design.
The G Watch comes with a 400mAh battery, said to last a “full day,” while the Gear Live features a 300mAh battery, which should also last a day. Both will need to be charged every night if you plan on wearing them consistently. Other than that, both run the same version of Android Wear, and both are compatible with all Android 4.3+ devices.
Check out our full unboxing and hands-on video below for more G Watch and Gear Live action.
