Here’s everything we know about the Samsung Galaxy Watch

The rumors are gathering about a Samsung Galaxy Watch, ready to replace the 2016 Gear S3. Here’s everything we know about it.

The next Samsung smartwatch will be called “Galaxy Watch“, instead of a traditional Gear S4, after a logo with the name Galaxy Watch was registered by Samsung as a trademark in South Korea.

Its appearance follows a similar registration in the US in May, which trademarked the name Galaxy Fit.
