There are some features that the update will bring about in the Gear Live which most of Samsung's Tizen-based wearable devices already have. These new features that get added in the Gear Live after installing the new update are support for GPS, the ability to play music locally from the watch by pairing a Bluetooth headset, which was briefed earlier when Google announced the update. Apart from these, the option to hide notifications on the watch face will also be added.

However, the update doesn't seem to be available globally as yet, so might have to wait for sometime. Users can download the OTA file and update manually.

LG G Watch and Moto 360 devices started receiving the update last week itself.

Samsung has also included a 300 mAh battery, heart-rate sensor, Bluetooth 4.0 LE and the usual compass, gyroscope and accelerometer sensors in the smartwatch.
