Samsung Confirms It's Preparing a Smart Watch for Release
Samsung has confirmed that it's developing a smart watch, reports Bloomberg.
“We’ve been preparing the watch product for so long,” Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile business, said during an interview in Seoul. “We are working very hard to get ready for it. We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.” Lee wouldn't say what features that watch would have or how much it would cost.
Apple is also said to be working on a Smart Watch. The site previously reported that the company has 100 designers working on the project.
The features under consideration by the Cupertino, California-based company include letting users make calls, see the identity of incoming callers and check map coordinates, one of the people said. It would also house a pedometer for counting steps and sensors for monitoring health-related data, such as heart rates, this person said.
Last month, a collection of screenshots surfaced online which are allegedly from a Samsung smartwatch dubbed the GALAXY Altius. There haven't been any leaks from Apple yet but check out these impressive iWatch concepts.
