NEW DELHI: Although Samsung has its hands full with the sales of Galaxy S8 smartphones along with the upcoming Galaxy Note 8, it's still working on wearables. The company is reportedly working on a smartwatch as it has sent a mail to members of its SmartLab Plus program regarding the same.
According to the screenshot of the mail obtained by Sammobile, the South Korean tech firm is looking out for ideas on the tagline that Samsung will use to promote its 'product'.
Samsung says that the tagline should be based on a product concept that "takes the best bits from the Gear S3 and the Gear Fit 2." It has also been clearly mentioned that the device is "in the form of a smartwatch and offers maximum comfort with a smaller body and thinner watch straps."
Giving some more details about the device, the email says that the watch straps will be replaceable to allow customers more personalisation. It may be a water-resistant product as well. This might also mean that the wearable may support tracking activities like swimming. It has been revealed that the device can also track other activities along with weight and calorie count.
On the software front, the device is said to sport a revised interface that will make it easier to glance at the information. There will be an alert as well to remind users to stay active and when to take a break from driving for long hours.
While nothing has been confirmed about the wearable device, it looks like Samsung is trying to bring more elements of a fitness band on to its smartwatch. There is no word as to when Samsung plans to unveil its upcoming smartwatch. However, it is likely that the device may fall under the Gear S line up.
Samsung launched its Gear S3 Classic and S3 Frontier in India back in January this year, priced starting Rs 28,500.
