Samsung to release next wearable hybrid smartwatch named Gear Sport

Samsung to release next wearable hybrid smartwatch named Gear Sport

Shortly after it stopped by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Gear Fit 2 Pro has been officially confirmed.

The next Samsung event is all but guaranteed to be home to the Galaxy Note 8 - but that's not all.

The FCC filing from Samsung shows off the new device which closely resembles Samsung's series of Gear smartwatches.

A different report by SamMobile has spilled the beans about its upcoming wearable device.

Malaysia's 1MDB says US$350m paid to Abu Dhabi for debt deal
They said 1MDB made the payment on Thursday (Aug 10), ahead of the deadline on Saturday, the sources told Malaysian Insight. Allegations of fraud involving 1MDB have already spooked investors by weighing on Malaysia's currency.

Samsung is headed to IFA later this month, and it's starting to sound like we'll see some new smartwatches there.

From the FCC documentation, a schematic of how the wearable device might look like has been revealed.

All we really know so far is that the Gear Sport supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and probably runs Tizen, given the lack of Galaxy branding. The South Korean company sent emails to some of the members of the SmartLab Plus program asking for their ideas how to properly promote the hybrid smartwatch that it plans to launch soon. The listing also contains a diagram of the smartwatch that indicates the official name of the wearable to be the Samsung Gear Sport. However, it is suggested that the Samsung Gear Sport is meant to bridge the gap that exists between a fitness tracker and a smartwatch.
