Samsung Readies Apple Watch Competitor
This entry was posted on Thursday, April 9, 2015.
The new Apple watch is not even released yet and already industry insiders are predicting it will be a game-changer when it comes to wearable tech. Apple competitors such as Android and Samsung are not sitting around waiting to find out - each of them is preparing their own "smart watch" gadget to directly compete with Apple.
In fact, the new Samsung Orbis looks as if it might actually be something people would wear, provided that it functions reasonably well. Samsung is no stranger to smart watch tech. They have released several different versions of this type of wearable device in the past years, none of which have caught on with consumers.
According to the publication, the Orbis will be sold as the Gear A and come in two versions, including one that only offers Wi-Fi connectivity (model number SM-R720), and one that also has 3G support, complete with voice calling (model number SM-R730*).
