Samsung gear live runtastic 05 640x426As it stands, Samsung has five smartwatches in the market at the moment. They have the original Galaxy Gear from 2013, the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit that was announced earlier this year, and they also have the Gear Live which is an Android Wear smartwatch announced by Samsung a few months ago.

However could Samsung have a new smartwatch in the works? Well according to a recent trademark filing by Samsung, they have filed for the trademark for a device called the Gear S. Given that the Gear brand of devices from Samsung are for their wearables, there is a chance that this could be another smartwatch from the South Korean tech giant.

Unfortunately not much is known about the Gear S at the moment, although some have speculated that the Gear S could be the rumored Gear Solo, which is a variant of the Gear 2 with SIM card capabilities, meaning that it will not have to rely on your smartphone for internet connectivity as it would be able to hook onto a mobile network of its own.

It is unclear how true this rumor is, but previously LG had also been rumored to be working on a smartwatch with a SIM card as well, although that model will reportedly be limited to the South Korean market and will not be making its way overseas. In any case we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
