Default Gear 2 / Gear Live comparison thread

To make it all a little easier for the consumer to make an informed decision I think it would be useful to build a comparison thread.

This is not for slating or making big statements about Samsung strategy, literally feature and technical comparison.

I.e music : Gear 2, ability to store locally and play through device or phone. Gear live, ability to control music playing on phone.

Please post any areas you know are 100% true and I'll update the first post.

No speakerphone, no Gear Live, for me. The speakerphone is just too good on the Gear 2 Neo for me to get rid of it.

I love my Gear 2, mainly because of the ability to make/receive calls and the camera.Those two main features are not available on the Gear Live.

Android Wear looks awesome so far though.

I thought about getting a Gear1, I definitely prefer Android, but decided to get the Gear 2 because development on the original Gear seemed to have all but stopped.

Hoping for development on the Gear 2, but starting to think it may never come with the new Android watches coming out.

The Neo was so cheap that I don't regret it, it will definitely hold me until a better Android option comes out
