New Android wristwatches from Samsung and LG make a few evolutionary advances, though I won't be rushing out to buy either.Samsung's Gear Live and LG's G Watch are good products and will appeal to those who like to be among the first to own new gadgets.The companion phone must run Android 4.3 or later, which covers about a quarter of the Android devices in use. It doesn't have to be a Samsung or LG phone. Even with its release of the Gear Live, Samsung will continue to sell the Gear 2 line of smartwatches, so I'll start there.Unlike the Android Wear watches, the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo both require a Samsung phone.LG is hoping to make its watch easier to use by making it without a physical button.The LG watch has about a third more battery capacity than Samsung's, but both watches lasted about the same amount of time in my tests.You might still gravitate toward Samsung's or LG's watch, but you risk regret if you buy one now.
