Last year was supposed to the year of New Samsung Gear S4 smartwatch but instead Samsung decided to go with Gear Sport fitness wearable. The Gear Sport is actually a fitness gadget rather than smartwatch. It is not that bad. It comes exclusively for swimmers & other sport persons that makes it more useful. Now Samsung is planning to switch back to its original Gear S series with upcoming Samsung Gear S4 wearable. It will be the fifth gadget into Gear series and fourth into Gear S watches. Many rumors have mentioned the next gadget will focus on longer battery life & better features for wearables. The new rumor suggests Samsung possibly change current Gear name with Galaxy Watch.

It has clearly mentioned next wearable would come with bigger integrated battery with watch strap. Samsung has taken patent for Gear watches which will increase battery capacity on devices. Since long time poor battery life is weakness of all wearables, including Samsung, Apple, Android & Fitbit watches. Not a single smartwatch is capable to run more than a day in single charge but this Samsung patent can change it all.
This might change with Samsung’s new integrated battery strap. It will run last longer and charge within minimum time than previous watches. The next change from Samsung is definitely watch strap for its new gadget. Well, there is no more information about watch straps so it will be very early to mention it here. The new gold color option might not mean lot to every users, still it is welcome move from company.
