Samsung employees are said to be wearing Wear OS powered Gear smartwatches

A flood of rumors about the Samsung Gear S4 smartwatch recently crossed our desks, and we passed them along to you right away. For example, earlier this month we heard that the timepiece, reportedly code named Galileo, will be offered in two sizes. The LTE version of the device is supposedly going to be available from Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T. A fresher rumor that we passed along just a couple of days ago, suggests that Sammy’s new smartwatch could carry the Galaxy name and be pre-installed with Wear OS. The latter is the operating system for wearables that was formerly known as Android …


Samsung Gear S4 could be the 'Galaxy Watch', new Gear Fit in the cards

Samsung recently trademarked the ‘Galaxy Watch’ and ‘Galaxy Fit’ names, presumably for use in its future endeavors in wearables, and this could be a big deal. Samsung’s current wearable lineups are split under the Gear and Gear Fir monikers. It’s a name that the company has been using for various phone accessories and smaller devices, but it seems that as far as fitness trackers and smartwatches are concerned, things may change in 2018.

A recent trademark application published by the USPTO reveals that Samsung now owns the Galaxy Watch and Galaxy Fit …

The best health and fitness apps for your Samsung Gear S3 and Sport watch

What do people use their smartwatches for, mused Samsung, and outed the Gear Sport last year, a fitness-centric timepiece that, however, wasn’t supposed to make owners of the Gear S2 or S3 green with envy.

With Google’s Android Wear strategy on the wane, the Gear family remains one of the few viable options against the Apple Watch juggernaut that is the best-selling wearable of the kind globally.

With a good reason, too – Samsung’s Gear portfolio has a great design with a rotating bezel, clever carousel interface of the crafty Tizen OS, and, above all, oodles of battery life …

Reminder: You can get a Samsung Gear S3 for just $99 when buying any Galaxy S9

Last month, when Samsung announced two upgraded versions of its Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones (with 128 GB and 258 GB of storage space), it also revealed a new promotional offer that’s available throughout May. The offer is aimed at US customers who are buying a Galaxy S9 or S9+, allowing them to get a Gear S3 smartwatch at a low price, or receive a pair of Gear IconX earbuds for free.
When purchasing any Galaxy S9 or S9+ model, you can add a Gear S3 Frontier watch to your cart for just $99. Normally, a Gear S3 Frontier costs $349.99, …

The best Samsung Gear S3 and Gear Sport watch bands and straps

We can all agree that the Samsung Gear S3 and Gear Sport are two stellar smartwatches. But just like regular watches, they are not merely utilitarian devices, but fashion accessories as well. Or they could be, at least, depending on how you wear them. A good-looking watch always catches the eye, but if you add an outstanding strap or band, you can really make it stand out as a fashion accessory. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of great bands available for both the Gear S3, which takes 22mm bands, and the Gear Sport, which is compatible with 20mm straps.

With …

Samsung Gear S4 and Apple Watch Series 4 could face stiff competition from Google this year

Android smartwatches are not in a good place right now. Due to fizzling popularity and dwindling sales, Google recently made the decision to rebrand Android Wear as Wear OS, in hopes that it would be able to turn a new page and regain its foothold in a market dominated by Apple and Samsung. The rebranding was a necessary move, considering that every third Android smartwatch was being paired with an iPhone, and reflects a broader trend at Google of removing the Android moniker from cross-platform services. But rebranding a product is one thing. Reinventing it is something …

30 of the best watchfaces for Samsung Gear Sport, Gear S3, Gear S2

Samsung’s Gear S series turned out to be quite successful despite running on Sammy’s home-brewed Tizen OS and not kicking off Google’s Android Wear. Perhaps surprisingly, Google’s own wearable OS doesn’t seem to be enjoying as much popularity as Samsung’s is.

So, naturally, you can expect to find a lot of 3rd party apps for the Gear S2, Gear S3, and Gear Sport in the Galaxy Apps store. As well as tons and tons of watch faces. Some good, some bad… But you know, it’s mostly in the eye of the beholder.

Still, it’s a daunting list to sift through. So, we thought we’d give you a list …

Samsung Gear S4 may come in two sizes, code-named Galileo

The Samsung Gear S4 rumor mill has recently begun spinning, with information regarding Samsung’s upcoming smartwatch trickling out slowly, but steadily. Recent reports claim that the Gear S4, code-named Galileo, is being developed in the United States and that the LTE variant of the smartwatch will be offered by all major carriers in the country – AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
But what’s far, far more interesting than this, is that the Gear S4 will likely be available in two sizes at launch, much like the Apple Watch, so as to better suit the needs of …

Buy a Samsung Gear Sport, get any wristband for free

Over the weekend, Samsung lowered the prices of its Gear S3 and Gear Sport watches by $70, so the devices are now cheaper than ever. As of today, Samsung is offering an extra gift to Gear Sport buyers – a free wristband (in addition to the band that comes with the watch by default).  
The free Gear Sport wristband is available only if you’re buying the smartwatch directly from Samsung – see the source link below. When you add the watch to your shopping cart, you’ll be prompted to add your extra wristband, too.
