Samsung Gear Live in a nutshell: what’s hot (and not) in 60 seconds (Video)
There are folks out there who don’t have the time for a ten-minute video or a 3,000-word review, and they certainly don’t have an hour to absorb a meandering podcast (no matter how many awards it’s won). These people might be sneaking a quick YouTube fix on a bathroom break, trying to make a point to a rival smartphone owner at a bar, or even standing in line at a wireless retail store, waiting to make a purchase. They need the facts delivered quickly, with a minimum of window dressing and a firm conclusion in as little time as possible.
For them, we’ve created the 60-Second Review, a minute-long video format made in the spirit of the Pocketnow TLDR. To borrow a well-worn slogan, it’s a review to get you “in, out, and back to life.” And at the end of every episode, we offer a link to the full-length video if you find yourself wanting more.
Android Wear is still by all means a very new platform, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have quality hardware to boot. The Samsung Gear Live has left us fairly happy, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t issues (as with every 1.0 product).
If you’ve been looking to get a pulse on just how well the Gear Live does in day-to-day performance, we’ve already published our Gear Live video review (with the written version coming soon), a comparison between this device and the LG G Watch, and a comparison with the Pebble smartwatch.
If you don’t have the time to digest all of that, though, we’ve got you covered as well in our 60-second Samsung Gear Live review video, where we share everything you need to know about the watch in just a minute.
