Samsung Gear Live announced. Buy one now

It wasn’t long ago that we had 1.2GHz CPU’s in laptops (in fact, I think this one I’m using right now has one). Now our smart watches have them. This is the Samsung Gear Live, powered by Android Wear. It has a 1.63″ Super AMOLED (320×320) screen and even manages to pack in Google Maps, Gmail, Hangouts, Google Voice and Google Now to tell you what the weather and traffic will be like.

It has a changeable strap, 512MB of RAM and lots of sensors including a heart rate monitor which works with various fitness apps. Packing Bluetooth 4.0, this can be paired with any Android device running Android 4.3 or higher and is available in black or red.

You can alter the clock face and it’s IP67 dust and water resistant. There’s a one-touch wake up feature and it’ll display info and “suggestions” in real-time. Your messaging and updates from various social media apps and news sites can come through too.

It’s apparently available in the Google Play store to buy but we’ve not found it as yet. It’ll also be available in Samsung stores and you can get more information here.
