Samsung Gear Live coming soon to India, gets priced at Rs.15900


Looks like the Samsung Gear live which went on Pre-order in the US is coming soon to India too. The Play store listing in India indicates that the Android wear device is coming soon to Indian shores and the store even has a price listed for the Gear Live at Rs.15900. It is interesting that the the Samsung Gear Live is priced more than the LG G Watch in India whereas it is actually priced lesser than the same in the US market.  It is worth mentioning Samsung already has some smartwatches in the market such as the Galaxy Gear which runs on Android and the newer Gear 2 , Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit which actually run on Tizen. The Gear Live marks the adoption of Android again by Samsung for a smartwatch product.  What is more interesting is that the new Gear Live works across Android phones and not restricted to just Samsung devices which actually gives the device a better chance in the market

I did play around for a bit with the Gear Live at Google I/O 2014 at San Francisco earlier today and it is indeed an interesting device. But Samsung has some tough competition from LG which has a G Watch and also Motorola which is launching the Moto360 smartwatch later this summer. Would you pay Rs.15000 for the Samsung Gear Live in India ?
