Galaxy Watch Active specs leak leaves one question unanswered

Galaxy Watch Active specs leak leaves one question unanswered

Samsung may have just made its next smartwatch, which will undoubtedly be eclipsed by the Galaxy S10 and its foldable phone, a bit more curious. Sadly, it might not all be in a good way. Recent leaked images of the Galaxy Watch Active, now believed to be the name of what was previously called the Galaxy Sport, hinted at the removal of Samsung's iconic rotating dial. Now a new leak has come up detailing the wearable's specs but comes up short in answering that mystery.

Galaxy Sport smartwatch render shows a less sporty design

Galaxy Sport smartwatch render shows a less sporty design

The Galaxy S10 won’t be alone when Samsung takes the stage at MWC 2019. While it and the anticipated foldable phone will naturally hog the spotlight, there’s always room for some accessories on the showroom floor. One such smartphone companion is the Galaxy Sport, alternatively called the Galaxy Active, Samsung’s first sports-oriented smartwatch under the Galaxy brand. You might not be able to tell it’s a sports smartwatch, though, judging by how classy it looks compared to Samsung’s other smartwatches.

Samsung Gear S3, Gear Sport get new features in Tizen 4.0 update

Samsung Gear S3, Gear Sport get new features in Tizen 4.0 update

Samsung may have abandoned the Gear smartwatch branding in favor of a Galaxy name but, fortunately, it hasn’t yet abandoned its existing smartwatches just yet. It has just now rolled out a rather significant update to the Gear S3 and Gear Sport smartwatches that adds more functionality to the two rather aged wearables. And probably just in time, too, as a new smartwatch may just be around the corner.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: Just Right

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: Just Right

The Samsung Galaxy Watch follows the tradition of the Galaxy Gear S smartwatch line with a new brand and a new outlook on life. The Galaxy Watch uses the newest version of Tizen to deliver a wrist-bound smart wearable device experience that's both powerful and feels natural. The Galaxy Watch is the first smartwatch I've worn that I've not taken off (and left off forever) immediately after my review. In this watch, Samsung's delivered something special.

Galaxy S10 should run Tizen at release, not Android

Galaxy S10 should run Tizen at release, not Android

The Samsung Galaxy S10 is a key device in the history of Samsung's most popular smartphone. Over the course of the last decade, the company's utilized Google's Android to take command over a large portion of the smartphone market worldwide. They've become the biggest smartphone company in the world completely dependent on a mobile OS made by a competitor. Here at a point at which the company's taken such strides to set themselves aside as a smartphone company above the rest, is it not time to forge ahead with an operating system of their own?

Samsung Galaxy Watch unboxing: My first impressions for you

I've got the bigger version of the Samsung Galaxy Watch right here, in black, and I'm going to tell you about it. I got the device in the mail today from Samsung. Over the next few days (and beyond) I'll be giving this device the once-over, looking at all the intricate bits and pieces, detailing everything I find out and everything I find interesting. To begin, there's the device's nature, very shiny and chrome.

Galaxy Watch coming: what we want from Samsung’s next smartwatch

Galaxy Watch coming: what we want from Samsung’s next smartwatch

While we're counting down to Samsung's Unpacked event this Thursday, the company is already dropping hints at something big coming later this month. It might also be literally Samsung's smallest reveal. After the Galaxy Note 9, it might be the time of Samsung's new smartwatch in the limelight. Call it Gear S4 or Galaxy Watch, these are some of the things we want to see in what should be the most advanced smartwatch of the year.

Galaxy Watch name confirmed, Samsung Bixby inside

Galaxy Watch name confirmed, Samsung Bixby inside

This year might be a slow one for Samsung. The Galaxy S9, despite re-imagining the camera, isn’t doing so hot. The Galaxy Note 9 due in a month may have a few tricks up its sleeve to make it more interesting than what it so far looks like. The most interesting Samsung product this year, however, might ironically come from its least interesting line: smartwatches. Its name, its OS, and its features are pretty much still in flux, which, at the very least, makes it sound a bit more exciting.

Gear S4, Galaxy Watch could end up with Tizen after all

Gear S4, Galaxy Watch could end up with Tizen after all

This year might be one filled with red herrings and misleading leaks. Lenovo is receiving some flak over its seemingly intentional attempts to throw people off track when it came to its not so notch-less and still very bezeleed Lenovo Z5 smartphone. Google seems to also be sending mixed signals over the Pixel 3 XL, at least if the leaks are correct. Of course, we can never be sure about leaks, because they are unofficial by nature. So when it turns out that Samsung might not be moving the Gear S4 to Wear OS after all, we can really do nothing but shrug and wait for the moment of truth.

Samsung Gear S4 with Wear OS: Tizen is dead

Samsung Gear S4 with Wear OS: Tizen is dead

Although they have never really disappeared, traditional smartphone manufacturers have more or less backed out of the smartwatch market. It has become the territory of accessory makers and luxury brands like Fossil or TAG Heuer. One OEM (aside from Apple) that has remained consistent is Samsung with its Gear line of smartwatches and fitness trackers. But while a new smartwatch is still expected to debut in a few months, change is reportedly afoot. Samsung might be switching back to Wear OS, formerly Android Wear, and it might actually start with this year's Gear S4.

Galaxy Watch might be Samsung’s first Wear OS smartwatch

Galaxy Watch might be Samsung’s first Wear OS smartwatch

Is Samsung really turning over a new leaf and becoming a better-behaved Android manufacturer? Once the biggest cause of fragmentation, Samsung has admittedly been trying to better conform with standards and expectations while still remaining uniquely Samsung. Now that might extend even to its wearables with rumors of a new "Galaxy Watch" looming over the horizon. This, according to some speculation could be Samsung's return to the smartwatch fold by being its first Wear OS, but second Android Wear, smartwatch.

Samsung Gear S3 update makes it easier to do things on your wrist

Samsung Gear S3 update makes it easier to do things on your wrist

The smartwatch market is a curious one. On the one hand, you are seeing more and more new models coming out, mostly from fashion brands and accessory makers rather than manufacturers. On the other hand, there hasn’t exactly been any major progress on the platforms themselves, especially lesser known ones like the Tizen OS used on the Samsung Gear smartwatches. That changes slightly today as Samsung pushes out an update for the Gear S3 that, while not a complete overhaul, promises to make life easier for the smartwatch’s owners.
