We’ve heard murmurs that the Samsung Gear S4 is on the calendar for release in late 2017, but there’s certainly room for another device, especially one that’s as much a fitness tracker as it is a smartwatch.
This survey in question asks those who received the email, which includes SamMobile, for their feedback on a product concept that “takes the best from Gear S3 and Gear Fit 2.
"The product is in the form of a smartwatch (rather than an active tracker) and offers maximum comfort… great peace of mind withstanding water to the point where it is swim proof”.
A plausible fit
It’s nice to see that Samsung is, from what it seems, actively looking for a way to merge two of its biggest strengths in wearables: its slick widget-based user interface and its unparalleled fitness tracking capabilities.
Going beyond that, offering a device that looks the part alongside both your more sporty and dressy wardrobe will go a long way in attracting a large audience.
And while the functionality of Gear Fit 2 and Gear S3 are unique enough to stand apart for different consumers, offering a smarter fitness tracker and a more capable smartwatch all-in-one is a smart move.
