The watch with intelligence or smartwatch (as it is well known) had a golden age a few years ago with a strong commitment from all manufacturers. Nowadays it is still an important device, but not all of them are betting on it: the market is largely dominated by the Apple Watch, also by the Samsung Gear S. Precisely, Samsung wishes to consolidate its leading position with its next smartwatch.
We already knew that Samsung was developing a new watch. We’ve heard rumors of system change, even, something that does not seem likely to happen. What will happen is the device name change: Samsung has registered a new brand, Samsung Galaxy Watch. A way you will give more importance to your watches and we will soon see the first of them.
Samsung Galaxy Watch: new name, more battery and even with Tizen OS
The future Samsung Galaxy Watch will involve a review of the manufacturer’s range of watches that, as is usual in new models, aims to be more powerful, with a renewed design and with more battery. Samsung has been almost two years without updating its star smartwatch after the timid renovation that was the Samsung Gear Sport: the Gear S3 still remains an excellent choice.
The South Korean manufacturer has registered the Samsung Galaxy Watch brand, also the logo of the future model. In this way, it abstains from the denomination “Gear” for a more generic and that better recognition has: “watch”. In addition, and despite some rumors have pointed to it, the Samsung Galaxy Watch will use Tizen OS, the operating system of the manufacturer, not Wear OS.
We do not know the launch plans for the new watch, although it would not be unreasonable for Samsung to discover it in this year’s IFA, as it happened with the Samsung Galaxy S3 in 2016 and the Gear Sport in 2017. In addition to the new design and the greater battery, the Samsung Galaxy Watch is also expected to measure the blood pressure in the wrist.
