Samsung has unveiled the Samsung Gear Live, a new wearable powered by Android Wear. The new Gear Live features Samsung’s signature Super AMOLED display for incredible color and screen clarity. It also offers easy customization of the clock face and utilizes simple one-touch device wakeup for instant access. The Gear Live meets IP67, protecting the device against the effects of dust and water immersion and comes with a standard 22mm band, so users can customize their band. Additionally, the sleek watch allows users to better manage their health and fitness with a built-in heart rate monitor that works seamlessly with multiple fitness apps.
The wide variety of Android applications compatible with the Gear Live means users can seamlessly receive the latest posts and updates from social apps, chats from preferred messaging apps, and regular notifications from shopping, news or even photography apps. The new device also offers intuitive voice commands; just say “OK Google” to ask questions like what time your flight leaves or the score of the game, or to get stuff done like calling a taxi, sending a text, making a restaurant reservation, or setting an alarm. The Gear Live can be paired with any Android device running Android 4.3 or higher for a truly connected and personal mobile experience.
Offered in black and wine red with interchangeable strap options, the Samsung Gear Live is now available to pre-order from the Google Play Store for $199 USD.
