A couple of weeks ago we reported that Samsung is working on their next Tizen based smartwatch codenamed “Pulse.” In the big scheme of things it appears that this will be the successor to the original Gear Sport. The new name however is Galaxy Sport, which falls in line with the new Galaxy wearable brand championed by Samsung ie Galaxy Watch and Galaxy wearable.
The new Galaxy Sport smartwatch will run Tizen, most likely Tizen 4.0 (the same as the Galaxy watch), and has 4GB of RAM. As the name suggests, sports and fitness will be the primary focus of this wearable.
Now, purported renders of the device have become available. They’re apparently said to be based on real leaked factory data. The face of the watch will most likely be 1.2-inches, just like the Gear Sport. For me 1.3-inches is sweeter sweet spot, but hey. Something new is that there will be a range of colors that you can select: black, green, silver and pink gold colors.
Looking at the renders we can see that is shares the same design language and styling as the rest of the recent Samsung smartwatches. One of the major physical points that it deviates is that It doesn’t have a toothed bezel. The bezel on this smartwatch seems to be smooth like the Gear Sport, which is something I've personally never liked - too slippery for me.
Samsung are still pushing ahead with Bixby on their wearables and it is said that the Galaxy Sport will ship with it bundled in. Galaxy watch and Gear S3 users might receive this as part of a future firmware update.
It seems quite likely that we will see this smartwatch launching alongside the Galaxy S10 next month. Stay tuned for more Information 😉
