The first thing we noticed about the Samsung Gear Live is that it looks like a smartwatch. The watch has a round face, and a small circular button on top of the face for navigation. It's also got an alarm, and you can set it to wake up when you get home from work or school.
The watch's display is bright, with a large number of icons in the center. It's not as big as some other smartwatches, but it's still easy to read and use - there are no buttons or dials on the back of this one, so you don't have to worry about accidentally hitting any of them while using it.
The Gear Live comes with two bands: one for your wrist and another for your finger. You can buy these separately if you prefer them over the traditional band option, but that doesn't mean they're bad either - they're just more comfortable than others we tested.

Do Android Smartwatches work with any phone?
No, smartwatches don't work with any phone. Smartwatches only work with Android phones that support the Android Wear platform.
Smartwatches are not a replacement for smartphones, and they can't replace a regular phone or tablet. Instead, they're great for tracking your activity and keeping you connected to the Internet while you're out and about.
How do I choose the right smartwatch?
The best smartwatches are sturdy and look good. They should also be big enough to fit on your wrist and have a big screen for notifications or an app drawer. A smartwatch should also have a big screen so you can see your time, notifications and appointments.
Some smartwatches come with different sizes for men or women, so you can find the right fit for you. Some even come in different colors, sizes and styles to match your personality or interests.
There are lots of smartwatches on the market that are great buys but some of them don't last long on your wrist so they're not worth buying when they're new!
Is it worth buying a smartwatch?
No, smartwatches are not worth buying. They are a technology, and technology is not worth much if it is not used properly. If you use a smartwatch for more than 1-2 days then you will realize that it does nothing but keep your phone battery alive and charged.
One should buy something else like an Android phone or Apple Watch to actually use the smartwatch functions.
Can I leave my phone at home and use my smartwatch?
Yes, you can leave your smartwatch and smartphone at home, as long as they are not in use. However, if you have a lot of work to do and the battery life on your smartwatch is limited, it may be worth considering using it in a pinch.
