The original Android Wear smartwatch, the Samsung Gear Live, has been discontinued less than a year after launch, hinting that a new Sammy wearable could be on its way.
Having helped launch the Android Wear platform last summer alongside the LG G Watch, the Gear Live remains Samsung’s one and only Google-powered smartwatch.
Having received little backing or marketing push from the Korean giant, the Gear Live has now been stripped from the Google Play Store.
Although still available through third-party retailers such as Amazon, it has been reported (via SamMobile) that once existing stocks are depleted, the Moto 360 challenger will slowly drift into being nothing more than a distant memory.
This might not be the end for Samsung’s Android Wear push, however. With Google I/O 2015 just a matter of weeks away, the Gear Live’s canning could pave the way for a new Android Wear offering from the Galaxy S6 maker.

Earlier this week it emerged that Samsung is working on a round-faced smartwatch with a rotating bezel, the company’s answer to the Apple Watch and its digital crown.
It is currently unclear if this is the product heading for a potential I/O unveiling on May 28, or whether Samsung has further wrist-based products up its sleeve.
