It’s a tradition to teardown every new device, and smartwatches are no exception. Last week, the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live were introduced as the first Android Wear watches, and AnAndTech has opened up both devices.
Both watches are held together by screws, but the Gear Live is a little more difficult to take apart. Both watches reveal the Qualcomm 400, which is a quad-core processor, but it’s likely that only one core is in use. This is based on benchmark tests conducted by Arstechnica. This seems likely since a quad-core does seem like overkill for such devices.
