Wearable market has been growing really fast and with Samsung taking up the lead in producing a number of them, its rivals including LG, Sony and others have also pulled up their sleeves to compete.
What is going to be new in the wearable market is the use of the circular dial in the smartwatch. So far, it was just the Motorola who was courageous to take up the shape and build Moto 360 smartwatch, which is due to launch. But just yesterday LG also released a teaser video that suggests the unveiling of the rounded smartwatch at the IFA 2014 tech show.
Moreover, Samsung is also gearing up for a similar circular smartwatch, according to SamMobile. If you can recall, Samsung is also said to announce the independent smartwatch at the IFA 2014 trade fair , which will be capable of making phone calls independently. This one is called the Gear Solo, if early leaks are to be referred, and obviously, it will feature a SIM card slot in it. Also accompanying the two smartwatches would be the Galaxy Note 4 smartphone and a Gear VR, a virtual reality headset.
Most probably, the two Gear watches from Samsung - the circular one and the one with a SIM card slot will run Google's Android Wear platform which is customized for wearable devices.
With Samsung joining the league of smartphone makers building rounded smartwatches, Motorola will be getting some harsh competition when it gets launched latest this year. However, things are pretty blurry at the moment and the tech community is yet to get hold of other information pertaining to the hardware of these devices, pricing and availability as well.
