Android Wear Receives First Update to KMV78V – Both G Watch and Gear Live See It

android wear update-4

Both the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are receiving pre-release over-the-air (OTA) updates today, jumping them up to build KMV78V of Android Wear (4.4W). At this time, we have no idea what is new, since nothing is standing out. Until we hear from others who received the update (assuming you went to Google I/O), we will guess that this is a bug fixer meant to polish things up a bit before those first Google Play orders of either watch arrive.

If you happen to own either watch, you can check for the update by tapping the screen, then scrolling down to Settings>About>System updates.

    I assume there will be different price points depending of the band, like ledlampen

    If Google Play gives easier access to their store. If Amazon creates an app store for smart watches.
    They’ll be knock-offs for $35.00 within the year..

  • MotoRulz

    The first REAL update will be the Moto 360..

    keep it 300 and under and youll sell these like crack…you cant price this as much as cellphones it just doesnt make sense it does a quarter of what a cell phone does its a companion device it shouldnt sell more then 300….but ill throw my money at this sadly even if its a lil more expensive and ill pay an extra 50 for the metal band…i can see them banging you for 100 for the metal band which will suck

    • Giovonni Fareed

      UGH i knowww! anything over 300 is a lil much, but ill have to get the metal band too, its a must. with everything were probably looking at around $400 :/ still getting it tho

    What happens if you swipe right?

      I tried, nothing :(

      • glimmerman76

        Bluetooth is more stable with the new firmware. I would say its just fixes

  • https://www.heartbleedbug.com/ Intellectua1

    Anybody else read any article saying the Moto 360 will most likely cost double of what the LG and Gear Live cost??

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      If that’s true, no one is going to buy it at $400-$450.

      • https://www.heartbleedbug.com/ Intellectua1

        What’s your cap you’re willing to pay? If the LG and Gear Live are $150 and $200 I’m going to say the 360 maybe around $300-$350 range which is ok for me depending on if I can add my own custom leather straps. I love this watch the leather straps are just way too thin and cheap looking.

        • Matthew DiGiacomo

          $300 is probably the max I’m willing to go. There’s just no way I can justify spending more on a watch that costs the same as a Nexus 5.

        • glimmerman76

          lg g watch is 229 and the gear live is 199

        • guest

          Retail Price $249, occassional sale would drop the price to around $189/$199, that’s the max price most people would be comfotable with..

    • Helen

      Looking ridiculous ain’t cheap!

    • TheDave1022

      Id assume there will be different price points depending on the band (although not sure how much a premium band can really add to the price) since it will done in moto maker. Anything over $300 for a “base” version is too much

      • https://www.heartbleedbug.com/ Intellectua1

        I don’t see this thing going over $350 they’d be shooting themselves in the foot. I wouldn’t mind paying $350 not a penny more though.

        • King Lo

          Not sure if you’re aware of Moto’s pricing history, but they are known for screwing it up.

          • Average DL User

            Shhh… Motorola can do no wrong. They are infallible and 7 billion MotoX’s were sold.

    • James

      I hope it isn’t a Moto X situation all over again: great product, worth the money, but doesn’t sell b/c consumers think it’s too expensive.

      • https://www.heartbleedbug.com/ Intellectua1

        I think this is different, Moto X was a phone and though maybe it was a great product couldn’t hold up next to current flagships. This is a smart watch whole new market (I know the Pebble and Gear 1,2, and Neo were smart watches but the software is no comparasion imo) people will jump on this thing, its premium compared to the Gear Live and LG watch so I think it can hold its weight at around $350. They just need to advertise this baby and it’ll sell.

        • MicroNix

          Sorry but only those with large amounts of disposable cash are going to buy it if its at that price point. Your average “smart” consumer isn’t going to drop $300 – $500 on a *watch* if they have a smart phone in their pocket anyway. Hell, most people won’t even drop $400 on a smart phone let alone a *watch*. Wearables will sell at $100 – $200 but to think you are going to see mass adoption of big bulky watches selling at $200+ is a pipe dream. Not until they can completely *replace* a smart phone.

          • tu3218

            I agree definitely. If they want any success, they have to price it competitively. Yes, all us tech geeks will surely drop a good chunk of change on the 360, but as you say, your average customer isn’t going to bother if it’s that much. This is an accessory and needs to be priced as an accessory. I think the G watch and Gear Live are priced very nicely. The 360 hopefully doesn’t exceed much more than those. I definitely won’t be spending anymore than $300.

          • glimmerman76

            heck with dropping money on it I get one for free and my wife gets the G watch

          • tu3218

            Free you say? Where do I sign up?

          • glimmerman76

            Mine is coming from google I/O, learned alot there

          • tu3218

            Oh gotcha. You’re very lucky then. I would of loved to go there.

        • James

          “Couldn’t hold up next to current flagships”…sure, on paper.

          You’ve just proven my whole point. People apparently thought the price to specs ratio of Moto X wasn’t worth it in comparison to other options. Even the though the actual user experience was quite comparable, even better in the opinion of some, they just didn’t sell well. Are consumers going to pay more for the 360 when its only real benefit over the G Watch, etc. (that we know of for certain at present) is that it looks better?

        • Robert Paulson

          To whom? Where is all this demand for smart watches coming from? Is this the same demand source for 3D television/phones? Or curved phones?

          Perhaps things can’t be shoved down the collective throat of the world and has to be actually wanted by people who buy things (and not wanted by people who write things/executive level decision makers).

          • https://www.heartbleedbug.com/ Intellectua1

            Well this is all just my opinion. I’m not saying what I wrote was a fact. We’ll see pricing and how well it sells when its released. America is a consumers market so I have a feeling these will do well in the $350 range.

    • Tony Byatt

      That’s going to be just under the price I think the Moto X+1 will be, $499…

      That would be disappointing but I will still be getting a Moto 360…

      • Grayson

        Aw, heck no. I could probably stomach $299 or even $349, but for $499 I would probably settle for the Gear Live or G Watch. I understand that people pay a lot for nice looking traditional watches, but those don’t become obsolete after a couple years. You can wear a nice traditional watch for the rest of your life if you take care of it.

        • Tony Byatt

          Didn’t say I think the Moto 360 is going to be $499, That’s the price I said I think the Moto X+1 will be…
