Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch go on sale, Moto 360 does not

Android Wear has made its way into three smartwatches now, with the Samsung Gear Live having joined the LG G Watch and the Moto 360 in the league. But while the latter is still to receive its price and release date information, the other two have gone on sale through the Google Play store.

The Gear Live from Samsung has grabbed identical components to the ones which were outed by a leak recently. This smartwatch can be pre-ordered now at $199.99. It has been listed for purchase on the Indian Play Store as well, but there’s no pre-order button available yet. It will be offered to buyers at Rs 15900.
