Android Wear is a concept we’ve known for a while now, with LG and Motorola manning projects that feature beautiful watches with this platform. Now Samsung hit the stage today during I/O 2014 with a new smartwatch and we also learned more about the platform.
For example we found out that using such a watch we will be able to easily check out notifications and the other info we need, when the handset is not around. When we get important messages on the phone, the smartwatch will vibrate and rejecting a call can be followed by sending a reply instantly. You’ll also be able to order take out food via a smart watch with Android Wear, as well as order a cab.
All of these features will be offered via voice input. Samsung’s first Android Wear device is the Samsung Gear Live, a product that looks quite a bit like the LG G Watch, because it integrates a rectangular screen. The product comes with a Super AMOLED 1.63 inch display with a 320 x 320 pixel resolution, 512 MB of RAM and a 1.2 GHz processor. It also has a 300 mAh battery, 4 GB of storage and its cases is water and dust proof.
Both the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are up for order stating today.
