Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro name confirmed; Gear Sport clears FCC

Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro name confirmed; Gear Sport clears FCC

Nowhere in the FCC listing does Samsung actually list that the Gear Sport is a smartwatch per-say, but the rounded body of the gadget indicates that it will have a smartwatch-like appearance at the very least.

Samsung's next-generation wearable device will be a cross between the Gear Fit 2 and Gear S3.

Samsung's Gear S3/Gear Fit 2 combo, the Gear Sport, might be closer than we thought

Shortly after it stopped by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Gear Fit 2 Pro has been officially confirmed. There are claims that the device might be made official around the end of this month along with the Galaxy Note 8. Well, it looks like Samsung has spilled the beans on its upcoming wearable device, although the leak was unavoidable since the information is accessible online. While previous reports had speculated at a "Samsung Gear Pop" branding, the label documentation identifies SM-R600 as the Samsung Gear Sport. The device was spotted visiting the FCC with features such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support but the other details remain unknown. However, the Sport moniker suggests the device is meant to bridge the gap between a smartwatch and a fitness tracker. Apparently, the new model will likely to replace the Gear Fit 2 which was launched in June previous year.
