Samsung Reportedly Has A New Smartwatch Communicator Up Its Sleeve


Samsung's Gear 2

Samsung has decided to augment its recently announced lineup of wearables—the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit—with another new smartwatch due out this summer, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Unlike the previous models, the South Korean tech maker is reportedly working on a standalone smartwatch that can make calls, send messages, track heartrate and take photos without being paired to a smartphone. Details on Samsung’s unnamed device could be announced as soon as next week, during a press event Wednesday about giving health a voice.

The company has also been rumored to be working on a virtual reality gaming headset for use with its Galaxy phones and tablets. If true, Samsung’s “pray and spray” approach to mobiles has clearly expanded, with an ambitious, overarching bid to rule people’s heads, wrists and pockets.
