Galaxy Watch release pegged for August 24 alongside the Galaxy Note 9


Last updated: July 18th, 2018 at 13:46 UTC+02:00

Quite a few reports over the past couple of months have suggested that Samsung will be bringing its smartwatch under the Galaxy umbrella. What was initially believed to be called the Gear S4 may actually be launched as the Galaxy Watch.

What is unknown is when the new smartwatch will be announced. Previous reports suggest it will be unveiled at the IFA 2018 convention in Berlin this September. A new report out of South Korea claims that not only will the new smartwatch be announced on August 9, the Galaxy Watch release has also been pegged for August 24 alongside the Galaxy Note 9.

Galaxy Watch release

Samsung has already confirmed the August 9 event for the Galaxy Note 9. It hasn’t even teased that a new smartwatch may also be on the agenda.

ZDNet Korea reports that the Galaxy Watch will be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. Contrary to rumors, the smartwatch won’t be powered by Wear OS. It’s still a Tizen device which will be available in two versions that differ in size.

The report also adds that the Galaxy Watch will have many healthcare features and Samsung will offer “killer apps” related to the fitness features.

Pre-orders for the Galaxy Watch will reportedly begin on August 14, the same day that pre-orders for the new smartphone open. Both devices will then be released to the public on August 24. The August 24 release date for the Galaxy Note 9 has been mentioned by multiple reports already.

Since this is the company’s first smartwatch under the Galaxy umbrella, it would make sense from a marketing standpoint to launch it alongside a new Galaxy flagship. The increased focus on its new flagship may also help the company better promote its new smartwatch.

This is the first that we are hearing about the Galaxy Watch possibly being launched and released alongside the Galaxy Note 9. If there’s truth to this we may see other reports reiterate this in the days to come.
