Samsung introduces Gear Live, their new wearable smartwatch.

Today at Google I\O, Samsung showed off their newest smartwatch running Android Wear, the Gear Live. The Verge got a hands on with one and it’s big. They say it’s a quality piece of equipment but right now they don’t know its full capabilities as it was running only in “Retail Mode”.

The band is a nice sized rubberized one, the display big and bright at 1.63 inches and it’s bedazzled in chrome. Basically it looks like a Gear 2 from all impressions.  There’s one button, spots for wireless charging and a heart rate monitor for the health freaks. There is a slight bezel around the display, a bit more than usual. Verge says the screen unfortunately is washed out in bright light and hard to see. Well shucks, that defeats the purpose of a watch.

The Gear Live is available for pre-order now and will ship on July 7th for $199. What do you geeks think? Have the wearables hit their peak or just hitting their stride? Check out the close up shots below courtesy of the Verge.
