Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch tipped by FCC entry

The existence of the Gear Fit 2 Pro has been officially confirmed by the company after the wearable device was spotted by FCC (Federal Communications Commission). Nowhere in the FCC listing does Samsung actually list that the Gear Sport is a smartwatch per-say, but the rounded body of the gadget indicates that it will have a smartwatch-like appearance at the very least. With the Note 8 coming out soon and the iPhone 8 close on the company's heels, Samsung will be looking to end the year with more success compared to last year.

A different report by SamMobile has spilled the beans about its upcoming wearable device.

Given that it's passing through the FCC right now, the device is probably nearly ready to be released.

Samsung is headed to IFA later this month, and it's starting to sound like we'll see some new smartwatches there. It appears that the next hybrid smartwatch that Samsung plans to introduce is called Gear Sport. However, it is suggested that the Samsung Gear Sport is meant to bridge the gap that exists between a fitness tracker and a smartwatch.

Nothing much is known about the wearable at the moment, except that it's likely to have a design similar to the standard Gear Fit 2 and could feature improved step-tracking accuracy.
