Samsung Galaxy Watch: Out of This World?
As of this writing, Samsung has confirmed development of a smartwatch but hasn't revealed much about its specs.
Reports are that the watch will be announced sometime around the IFA 2013 show in early September (along, perhaps, with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3). Will it be called the Samsung Galaxy Watch, the SM-V700, the Altius, or the Samsung GA7? Will the watch display maps when paired with a Samsung (or other Android) phone—though preferably not while the wearer is driving? We should find out soon. In the meantime, the blog Android Smartwatch reminds us that Samsung has released smartwatches before—as long ago as 1999.
Status: In the works?
