Samsung’s range of smartwatches continues to grow, with the newest of these being an addition to Google’s own Android Wear lineup. We knew this was coming but there was, prior to Samsung announcement at Google’s I/O conference yesterday, very little information about what the South Korean company would be bringing to the table.

That’s all in the past now however, as Samsung’s Gear Live (pictured above) is now official and available for pre-order overseas. The smartwatch is set to be similar to other Galaxy wearables in terms of hardware but with Google’s operating system platform inside.

Samsung have given the official specs for the device out and users will find themselves with a 1.2GHz processor running a 1.63-inch (320 x 320) Super AMOLED display. Android Wear, of course, is driving the show but Samsung are baking in 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a heart rate monitor, and water and dust resistance into the smart wristwear.

It will ship with the standard smartwatch features, like SMS and email notifications, as well as a selection of Google services and a 300mAh battery. Best of all, it will be able to pair with any Android 4.3 or later mobile device that supports Bluetooth 4.0.
