It is a period of wearable computers. The latest trend in that genre is the smart watch. Sony, Apple, Samsung , all the tech giants are busy preparing and updating their own smart watches. Recently Samsung has joined the battle. Dubbed Galaxy Smart watch, the Samung's piece of wearable computer device's specs has been leaked. According to the latest reports, the Galaxy smart watch will be getting unveiled formally during the next IFA, which will be held on September, in Berlin.
The Galaxy smart watch is code named SM-V700WATCH. Marked as a strong rival to the Pebble series of watches has made its appearance in one of the tracker of India's imports and exports. So, the releasing news could be true! Samsung's official web site also hinted that the device is almost in the last stage to make its big launch. As the IFA 2013 is nearing, more rumors and gossips will be heard in the air.
The company themselves have acknowledged the making of such a device. "We've been preparing the watch product for so long," Samsung's executive VP Lee Young Hee said in an interview earlier this year. "We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them." - he further commented. After these words were uttered, there had been a huge wave of rumours about the possibilities and expected features of such a device.
Earlier, there had been rumours that the smart watch from the company will fall under the new category of Samsung. The new category had been named as “Gear”. If the rumours are correct, there will be not only watches, but clocks, wrist bands and bracelets under this category. As per this rumour, the watches will be able to communicate data to personal digital assistants such as smartphones, tablets etc through internet and other networks. The watch bands will be able to communicate data.
From the moment the company has acknowledged the rumour of a smart watch, the Samsung smart watches have been marked as a strong rival to the Apple's smart watch. Its quite obvious no? Rivals in smartphones, rivals in wearable computers too. Nothing surprising, we guess. LG had been rumoured to be busy making a smartphone. If the rumour is correct, the competition is going to be more tight.
The current era is well known for the smartphones. But, soon the title will be changed to that of the smart watches. As almost all of the cell phone manufacturing companies have entered the smart watch industry, the healthy competition we see in the world of smartphones will be shifted to the smart watch market too, hopefully.
