Samsung has become a fixture in the wareable business, and they’re set to launch a new device if a new survey being sent from Samsung’s SmartLab program asking for opinions on a new wareable.
It’s not quite a smartwatch, and it’s more than a fitness tracker, so it appears to be a mesh of the two – sort of halfway between a Gear Fit 2 and a Gear S3, at least that’s the impression Samsung is giving. Rather than a survey on a product in development, the survey is talking about the marketing side of things, asking for opinions on the marketing of the upcoming product.
As you can see in the screenshots above, the device will be waterproof, have a ‘smaller body and thinner watch strap’ and be able to track activity, calories and offer sports and coaching advice including ‘glanceable widgets’. There will also be alerts including the usual activity alerts to remind you to move, as well as driving alerts to remind you to take a break.
When we’ll see this launched is anyones guess, but the Gear S3 is nearly a year old so it’s time to see what Samsung has to offer.
