Google on Wednesday at Google I/O 2014 unveiled the first Android Wear smartwatches, including the gorgeous Moto 360, the LG G Watch, and a newcomer, the Samsung Galaxy Live.

After demoing various Android Wear features during the event on the G Watch and Moto 360, Google revealed actual release dates for these two devices, but also for the Gear Live, a smartwatch that was not announced before the show.

Google revealed that both the G Watch and the Gear Live will be available to order on the Google Play Store later today, without revealing actual ship dates or pricing details for LG’s and Samsung’s respective smartwatches.

The main Android Wear attraction is, without a doubt, Motorola’s Moto 360 device, a gorgeous smartwatch that, unfortunately, will not be available to order right now. Google said the Moto 360 will be available this summer, without further elaborating on the matter.

Google I/O attendees will receive either a G Watch or a Gear Live right now, and a Moto 360 once it launches.
