Samsung Gear S4 watch and smart home tech to be unveiled?

With the Apple Watch having already established itself as a fitness and wellbeing savvy device with its Move notifications and Breathe app, these new Samsung products have stiff competition.

Beyond its actual looks, the Gear Sport is heavily focused on fitness with an emphasis on nutrition.

The Samsung Gear Sport also feels pretty similar to last year's model.

Samsung has been making inroads ever since it started producing phone-connected watches, and this year, the company is using IFA in Germany as the place to showcase where it plans to go to next, and the news is good if you happen to like running, kicking, or just walking very fast. The Sport will go head-to-head with the Apple Watch Series 3 with rumored cellular connectivity, which could launch on September 12. The Gear Sport, for example, is a Samsung Gear smartwatch built for the wear and tear of sports. We'll update this article as soon as we know more. Running Tizen OS it is compatible with all Android 4.4+ phones and recent iPhones running iOS 9+, and comes in two sizes. It's available in Black and Red, with Samsung saying that "its versatile design also makes it a stylish accessory".

However, the Samsung Gear Sport will act as a modern day fitness tracker that can record the swimming sessions including the Speedo On App (preloaded).

Samsung has not confirmed pricing for the Gear Fit2 Pro, although it has been tipped to come in at $199 or £199.

Samsung also introduced the world's largest QLED gaming monitor - the CHG90, which measures 49-inches, with a 178-degree ultra-wide viewing angle. As a matter of fact, it's durable enough to take swimming - even in salt water.

The Gear Fit 2 Pro's long and skinny screen and lighter body make it a better fit for more intense workouts than the Gear Sport. Spotify's Offline mode lets you listen to your favorite music online, offline or even without your smartphone so you can enjoy your favorite tunes regardless of location. It's not meant to replace that watch, but it's a smaller and you might say more fun wearable with an assortment of band options and numerous features that have made Samsung's wearables notable.

The easiest way to think of the Gear Sport is as the Gear S3 with a sporty twist, as indeed the name suggests.
