Samsung is planning to announce a smartwatch running Google's wearable-centric Android Wear operating system, reports this weekend have claimed.

According to CNET sources, the firm will reveal the device at the next week's Google I/O expo, where Motorola and LG are also expected to deliver Android Wear smartwatches.

Samsung has declined to comment on the report, but an Android Wear device would represent a departure from its current strategy of using the home-cooked Tizen software to power its Gear-branded wearables.

The device, which the report says could be handed out to Google I/O attendees, would represent a commitment to Google and also give Samsung the chance to diversify its offerings.

Show stealer?

It has long been thought that LG will announce the oft-leaked G Watch at the June 25 event and a new purported image of that device appeared on Friday.

The Moto 360 Watch is also widely expected to show its round face at the event.

Which of the three will leave the biggest impression at Google I/O? Share your thoughts below.
