Other than the obvious, Gear/Gear 2 run Tizen. How are they different?

Can you make calls from the watch/accept/decline calls from the watch like you can on the Gear/Gear 2?

Also, how does it handle notifications? For example you receive a text or get Tweeted at, can you respond?

Thanks for any/all info!

Might go to Best Buy sometime this week and buy one, so would like all info possible!

It is quite different. Mind you, I'm also using custom null on gear 1

There is a mic, but no speaker
Vibrate seems very weak
All notifications get sent to watch. Haven't tested replying yet

Kind of disappointing that you cannot take a phone call on the Gear Live as you can on the Galaxy Gear and Gear 2.

Surprised I am typing this, but it is a backwards progress vs the Gear 2 as of right now. I dont have any confidence in Samsung long term for developing a capable platform and have all confidence in Google so I will ditch my Neo for it but Android Wear has a way to go.

I know everyone have an opinion, but from where I am sitting, this a great leap forward, There are many things that can be improve and with time software will get a lot better, however on my eyes Lives have improved considerable over the Gears 2.
