Samsung Gear Fit Pro and Gear POP may be unveiled at Tizen Developer event

The Tizen Developer conference is set to kick off on May 16 in San Francisco, California, and Samsung is expected to unveil a couple of new products powered by its operating system.

One of these products is likely to be the Gear Fit Pro, a fitness tracker that we've already heard about earlier this year when Samsung trademarked the name. Unfortunately, not much is known about the upcoming Tizen wearable device.

Rumor has it that the Gear Fit Pro will be strongly linked to the Simband health platform that Samsung launched a couple of years ago, which should offer users health tracking via the cloud.

The next Tizen wearable device that we might see being unveiled next week in San Francisco is called Samsung Gear POP. It's also known under model number SM-R600, but aside from that piece of information, no other details are available at the moment.

File the information under rumors since we don't have any clear evidence that Samsung will be announcing the Gear Fit Pro and Gear POP next week, even though it would make perfect sense to unveil these devices at the Tizen Developer conference.

Damn. I was hoping for a Gear S3 that is the size if the Gear S2 this year.

That will be the Gear S4. I agree, the Gear S3 is leaving a lot of potential buyers away because of the size. Too big.

You all complained the Gear S2 was too small, so they made it bigger so now it's too big? How about rhis...why don't you invent the perfect size and wear it. It seems you will find something wrong with everything they do. It's just no easing you all. But yet none of you have the capability to make anything.

Gear S2 classic was the perfect size actually, maybe a little bit smaller would be the best.

The Gear S2 and S3 are rh2 same other than size and a barometer. So, if you like the Gear S2, just buy it.

Except S2 doesn't have mst for Samsung Pay. Other than that they are the same.

My gear S2 doesn't have a speaker phone. Does the GS3 not have a speaker phone for phone calls?
