While you wait for the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live to go on sale this evening, check out the full spec list for the new Android Wear powered smartwatches. Both devices are similar, but we have a feeling after checking out the spec list, if you aren’t holding out for a Moto 360, we know exactly which device most people will be picking up.

LG G Watch

  • Chipset: Qualcomm®Snapdragonâ„¢ 400 processor
  • Display: 1.65-inch LCD IPS (280 x 280)
  • Memory: 4GB eMMC / 512MB RAM
  • Battery: 400mAh
  • Operating System: Android Wear (compatible with smartphones running Android 4.3 and above)
  • Size: 37.9 x 46.5 x 9.95mm
  • Weight: 63g

Samsung Gear Live

  • Battery: Standard Battery, Li-ion 300mAh

As you can see, the Samsung Gear Live offers a bit more in the hardware department. While only being a little bigger dimension wise, the Gear Live packs in a heart rate monitor and more dense display. The G Watch has a slightly bigger battery, but with a Super AMOLED display the Gear Live might still be able to keep up. If price is going to be a deciding factor, the Gear Live is $30 cheaper at $199. Now that you know the full specs of each device, which one are you going to buy?

    aww poor LG. I mean they just announced their newest toy and Samsung announces theirs and it’s not only got better specs, it’s cheaper. Dead before they even launched. But maybe LG will make their watch $150 or something to compete. When there’s competition, we win.

  • Bart

    The band on the Samsung looks like it could unsnap very easily and fall off the wrist.

    For many of us, the perfect wearable device should be one that fits in nicely and has a number of useful features. It will definitely help us become more productive and make our life better.

    Is the band on the Gear Live replaceable? It doesn’t look like it is.

    • Bart

      According to the specs on the Google Play, the band is replaceable. Then the problem becomes finding a band that doesn’t make the watch look ugly. I’d rather they just put a better fastener on the band they sell.

    Samsung Gear Live looks nice! I think the heart rate monitor is a quite useful function, it is ok to have a little bigger dimension wise.

  • SGB101

    I’m liking the Samsung version, over the LG, it looks cheap. Also the new Samsung Tizen watch is impressive, but held back due to the need of a galaxy. So the Samsung great looks the best option.

    Saying that, I would buy neither yet. I want reviews reviews reviews, and still I’d wait till the Moto to drop.
