    From what I've heard it's not selling that well, the reviews weren't great. Personally I would hold off a bit and wait for the Moto 360 and Android Wear to mature a bit.

    I have the Gear 2 an I must say; "It's the Bomb!" My first smartwatch choice couldn't have been better. It paid off to hold off until they come out with the Gear 2."

    Ive had mine for a while, has the lg and gave it back. The gear live is much better and lasts all day. I get a lot of txts for my job and its great to not have to always be pulling out the phone to read and reply. Its sped things up greatly.

    The Gear Live is currently at the top of my list of smartwatches, but I'm also keeping an eye on the LG G watch R. Might pick one up early next year.

    You can get it if you want, but don't expect much. Although the new wearables are very popular, they're still very basic in features. As @Derek Scott pointed out, it's still mature a bit. Sooner or later, more apps will be supported, more features will be implemented and more brands will join the wearables-club. You might regret having a 'first generation' device at that time too.

    I share your sentiment. My head is saying the same thing you are saying, but my heart really wants this cool piece of tech. Guess I'll take the wait and see approach.
