Samsung Gear Live is still receiving the security updates. Build M1D64T is on mine right now, a December 1 update.
To see it not getting the 2.0 treatment, when Samsung is no longer managing the Gear Live (remember, Google runs the gamut on OS releases for the Wear platform), is a shame. It fits all the specifications that most other Wear devices have that ARE getting updated.
In fact, the one device I can equate the Gear Live to is the Asus ZenWatch 2, which is slated for the February 9 release date.
SD400, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, 320x320 OLED, 300mAh battery, it is 100% in range of the specifications. Yet that Samsung gave up on it means the death knell, that only emphasizes that Google only supports the relevant. I'm not shocked that the LG G Watch won't be updated, but the G Watch R will be... Is just strange, when specs-wise, it's the same.
Google's very strange about how they manage their platform. I'm hopeful we see some independent work on it. I can give or take the heart rate sensor if it means the device remains on my wrist. Any sacrifices that keep this device as my reliable companion should be worth it.
