Gear 2

Hot off the release of the new Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit, rumors are once again flying that Samsung may also be gearing up to release a stand-alone smartwatch that would work without the need to be connected to a phone. Much like the Neptune Pine or Omate TrueSmart watches, Samsung's offering would take its own SIM card and essentially be a wrist-size phone with full cellular connectivity.

The Tizen-powered device would offer not only many of the features currently found in the Gear devices like a camera, music player, and heart-rate monitor, but also things like email, GPS and phone calls. Samsung is currently talking to carriers in the U.S., South Korea and Europe about the new watch, which we could see announced as early as next month.

Still nothing official from Samsung, but this isn't the first time we've heard about a watch of this nature and it certainly won't be the last.
