SAMSUNG GEAR LIVE:
The Samsung Galaxy Gear is one of the first Android wear Smartwatches. Samsung is known for its various technological advances and outcomes and hence not surprisingly, this is its fourth attempt at a Smartwatch, only after Galaxy Gear, Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. It focuses on hardware while Google focuses on software. If you are looking for a sleek, decent Android wear, then this is definitely the way to go.
This model is inspired by the Samsung Gear 2. The smooth, black, plastic watch straps can be swapped and it is water and dust resistant (IP67 certified). There is a single home button on the right edge that is used to turn the device on or off. There is no camera or an infrared blaster. It weighs 59 grams and is 8.9mm thick. It is light and slimmer than LG’s Android Wear Smartwatch.
It is technologically as well as physically comfortable to wear this watch. The watch’s interior is curved slightly so that it sits intrinsically on the wrist. This is one of the best Android wear out there. The display is vibrant, bright and clear with majestic colours and sharpness. Whether it is tablets or Smart watch screens, Samsung deserves applause when it comes to display.
This device has an accelerometer, digital compass, gyroscope and a heart rate sensor incorporated in it. The green flash lighting of the sensor against your skin provides the reading of the heart rate. There are no apps to support videos in Android wear. As for images, the resolution is not completely optimised and there is a bit of a problem with sharpness and clarity. The main setbacks are its low battery life and its compatibility with only newer Android devices. It is also harder to read in sunlight.
