Don't despair if you bought Samsung's Gear 2 smartwatch, only to realize that you wanted the Android-powered Gear Live instead -- there might be a solution in the works. XDA tinkerer biktor_gj has successfully loaded Android Wear on the Gear 2 after four months of work. It's in a very rough state, as you might imagine. Only touch and rudimentary Bluetooth support are working right now. Android Wear doesn't have an open source project the way that regular Android does, so any support for audio, the motion sensor and other features will likely be tricky to implement. Biktor is hopeful that he'll get those working, however, and even this crude port is proof that your smartwatch isn't necessarily limited to its original software.
