    Default LG G Watch or Samsung Gear Live.. Which will you choose?

    I've been set on LG or Moto, since Moto is yet to show a release date, I think I'll still be heading the LG route.

    I've never owned a Samsung smartwatch but the overall design looks very clunky to me.



    Where do you stand?

    I think the Gear looks better than the G Watch, and has the heart rate monitor, so that one might be a winner. The 360 is just too expensive for my tastes.

    I can't make up my mind I came to the forums hoping someone could convince me. I'm leaning towards the lg watch I think it looks better than the Samsung.

    Of the two, I'm more tempted by the Samsung. However, I'm going to wait for some real-world reviews. Temping to join in on the fun of being among the first in line, but I'm not quite convinced enough of the utility of these to pull the trigger quiiiiite yet.

    Personally, I will wait for the Moto 360 if I do indeed get a smartwatch.

    Between the LG and the Samsung, though, I'd go with LG because the Samsung is only compatible with Samsung phones.

    Correction. The Galaxy Live works with any device running Android 4.3 or higher.

    Why does it say this on the device's page?

    The Samsung Gear Live is compatible with all Samsung phones running Android 4.3, Jelly Bean™ or higher, and all of your favorite Android apps will display notifications on the Samsung Gear Live.


    Why doesn't it just say any Android phone running 4.3 or higher?

    I saw that. Also from the same page:

    Bringing Android to wearables
    Android Wear extends the Android platform to wearables. The Samsung Gear Live is compatible with all Samsung phones running Android 4.3, Jelly Bean™ or higher, and all of your favorite Android apps will display notifications on the Samsung Gear Live.
    So if anything, it's unclear.

    Since it's Google pushing it I really doubt it's Samsung specific, none of the other Samsung watches run Android Wear either.

    Yeah, Android Wear devices are compatible with all Android phones. I really want the Moto 360, but I feel like it's gonna cost more than I'm willing to pay. The G watch in black looks better than the Gear Live to me, but I like that it has the HR sensor and it's cheaper. Guess we'll see.

    So far I seem to prefer the round format Android wear watched than do the square. Right now I am for Moto 360 especially the black on black version. However still like see what ASUS and HTC come up with.

    I hope HTC comes out slick soft touch polycarbonate body like HTC One X or even better bring back micro arc oxidized process they did on the HTC One S.

    I already see a trend with the first generation of Android wear smartwatches will mainly be built with stainless steel. Hopefully HTC breaks the mold since they have always try to innovate on design materials used in their products.

    Why do people think the g-watch looks better than the gear live based on the photos? The LG looks so plastic-y and cheap. Picture the gear live with a metal band - I feel like I could wear that to work and not feel like I have a kids watch on. Plus the cheaper price.

    I'd go with the gear live.

    Me too. Even at the same price I'd go with the Samsung. Just a much better looking watch to me.

    Just bought a Rose Gold Gear 2 and love it!!!! I bought the RG to wear with suits which I do almost everyday. IMO- Samsung just has more experience in this space. They build an incredible product. All that being said, now I feel confused because I love having the Gear 2 with the camera but of course want the AW operating system. So, am I returning it today knowing all well that Samsung is not going to port AW to the Gear 2 or gamble???

    I'm not so sure that Samsung will bring Android Wear to the Gear2. Why else would they bring out a total new watch with a different name that runs Android Wear?

    I chose the LG G Watch because I like that it's not looking like an actual watch. It's more like some James Bond device that I allways wanted to have as a kid A dream comes true

    I currently have a pebble and I actually like the way it looks. It sits flat on my wrist. The G watch looks very similar and should fit the same. The Samsung looks like it will be raised a little like the other gear watches are.

    I guess Monday I will check them both out at best buy before deciding.

    I ordered the G Watch... Like the look better. Plus, slightly larger display and I don't really care for Samsung that much...

    I also just ordered the LG G watch had to first sell my pebble steel. I like how it looks the fact that it's pure Android on your wrist and just the other day more than half my applications updated to work with wearable sold me. Should be here Wednesday
