Samsung Gear Live receives update to Android Wear 4.4.W.1

Samsung Gear Live receives update to Android Wear 4.4.W.1
If you own the Samsung Gear Live, you might have noticed that your timepiece has received an OTA update to Android Wear 4.4.W.1. So just what changes are coming to your smartwatch? You should spot an improvement in the navigation function of the watch. In addition, the "voice action experience" should also see an improvement.

Other Android Wear smartwatches will also be receiving this OTA update sometime in the next few days. On Friday, we passed along to you some information about Android Wear updates that are expected from now until the end of the year.

While there is no changelist that we can repeat, one person with a Motorola Moto 360 claims to have received the update. He says that after downloading and installing it, he was able to change the mode of transportation after starting navigation. If your Android Wear timepiece has received Android Wear 4.4.W.1, let us know what changes you've noticed in your watch since installing it.

I never thought that i was going to fall in love with a watch. Android wear does just what I needed. Have constant notification. I have the Galaxy Gear live, and I am thinking of buying the moto 360 as well for my dressy day. Great job google keeps the updates coming.

Samsung gear watch update track record is good. I already received 3 updates for my 1st gen gear watch making it better with longer battery life. I hope they continue to invest in smart watches.

I have a Live and enjoy it to. I will probably buy the 360 in 4 months or so unless something better is announced until then, which i'm sure other will be announced until then.
