The watch is set to land with the Galaxy S10 devices on February 20.
It’s been a while since Apple has been the king of smartwatch market and Samsung has been competing for a crown with Apple for a while. But its Galaxy smartwatches never reached the height they were expected to. And now Samsung is looking to change that with its new Galaxy Sport watch (not the actual name).
A render of the smartwatch released by 91mobile shows that the watch looks pretty decent. But what you won’t see is the trademark of Samsung Galaxy watches, the rotating bezel. It’s not clear as to how you are going to control the interface without the rotating bezel, but might come with buttons on the side as shown in the image or some capacitive touch on the case.
The watch will feature a round dial with two buttons on the side and come with a sleeker brushed metallic finish. The strap will have the same finish as the dial. Even if the watch is named sport, it will suit any kind of users.
Since the watch is sport focused it will come with the usual sets of utilities like GPS, sleep monitor, activity tracker, sleep counter and heart rate monitor. And the device will likely have some sort of IP certification for dust and water resistance. The device is also set to come with NFC for mobile payments. Though the watch will have one major demerit to its Apple compatriot: ECG.
The watch is set to launch at the Unpacked event from Samsung on February 20 with its flagship Galaxy S10 devices.
