Samsung Galaxy Watch Release Date & Spec Rumours

In August Samsung is tipped to launch a new wearable, but rather than the Tizen-powered Gear S4 we were expecting it could be a Galaxy Watch running Wear OS. Here's what we know about the new Samsung smartwatch.

Samsung is known to be holding an Unpacked event on 9 August to unveil its Note 9, but a second new device could headline: the Samsung Galaxy Watch.

Well-known tipster Ice Universe has tweeted new details about the upcoming wearable, suggesting it won't be a Gear S4 after all, and it won't be running Tizen but Wear OS.

Other claimed specs include a 470mAh battery, a blood pressure monitor, new UX interactions and some sort of panel-level packaging that allows the main chip to be shrunk down and consume less space, allowing for a smaller battery or more space for internal tech.

We'll bring you news on the imminent smartwatch as we hear it.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
