Samsung’s smartwatch has been rumored to be named Galaxy Gear, but there haven’t exactly been concrete pointers towards the fact. Until now, that is, as a trademark filing has confirmed that name, indicating the watch will be a part of the Galaxy family, which isn’t surprising considering it will be a companion accessory for the company’s smartphones and tablets.

The Galaxy Gear is expected to sport model number SM-V700, if previous leaks are to be believed, and its (concept?) design was also revealed in a patent filing. It is expected to be unveiled on September 4 where Samsung will also be announcing the Galaxy Note III.
