Samsung is planning to release yet another smartwatch this year; however, this one will run Android Wear, reports The Verge.

Samsung's first attempt at putting together an advanced smartwatch based on Android, the Galaxy Gear, met with a very rough reception at the tail end of last year, and the company quickly switched to its own Tizen software for the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. In emailed comments to The Verge, Samsung has confirmed Yoon's timeline of a 2014 release for its new smartwatch and clarified that it will indeed be using Android Wear. Together with the Gear Fit, which runs its own custom software, Samsung will soon be supporting three different operating systems for its wearable devices.

Google announced Android Wear back in March. A Developer Preview of Android Wear is already available, you can learn more about it here.

Motorola was the first to debut a watch powered by Android Wear. The Moto 360 has an iconic design, featuring a round face and premium materials. Check it out here.

We'll let you know when more details about Samsung's new smartwatch are revealed. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Samsung users will never own the latest and greatest, always releasing another S something literally every week or two

Samsung can't even support 1 operating system properly, they want to support 3?! Talk about being stupid...I think it's contagious by the sound of their supporters here.

Samsung, I admire your open mentality of announcing upcoming devices and projects. It's really harmful when you have copycats all around (you know what I mean right ? ) now they would just copy and take patent for it. They even have patent for how their employees (and some iSheeps here ) should fart and that's called iFart.
