Samsung - New Smart Watch, said to be unveiled September 4th ahead of IFA

Talk of Apple's iWatch has suddenly given way to Samsung's new smart watch, which the company has tentatively said will be presented on September 4th in Berlin, ahead of the IFA Conference.

It is reportedly to be known as "Galaxy Gear" and is supposedly going to be a "concept device".  What exactly this means is not completely known - it is not clear if the watch will be ready for shipment or if what will be shown is a prototype of what it will be.

Other rumors of whether the watch will be a flexible design or not have not been confirmed.

Both Apple and Samsung are reportedly putting a lot of emphasis in the smart watch opportunity in an effort to keep growth as new product markets avail themselves.  But new competition could potentially take a piece of the watch market as device and accessory makers, even fashion designers, are poised to compete in the field.

REVIEW: CASIO Smart Outdoor Watch WSD-F10 (VIDEO; GALLERY)
This is probably the best Android Wear smartwatch on the market. It looks good. It feels good. It's built to military-grade survivability standards to be water, mud, dust, and drop-proof. It comes with a suite of custom-made, proprietary tools and features...and they're so good that CASIO's Smart Outdoor Watch might be better off without Android Wear.
