Samsung seems to be teasing a new Galaxy Gear smartwatch on Twitter
Samsung still hasn't announced what it would showcase at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, although it did suggest that we may see some innovative wearable devices.

A new tweet from Samsung Mobile UK from just moments ago seems to tease a new Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Alongside the question “What do you want Samsung to unveil in 2014?”, the tweet reveals an image that shows the 2013 Galaxy Gear on the left, and a blank space on the right, with a “What next?” question below it. Now, we can’t be certain of anything yet, but it looks more and more that a new Galaxy Gear is coming in the near future. On the other hand (no pun intended), we could see a completely new type of wearable accessory.

Sure enough, the original Galaxy Gear is only three months old, thus many do not see the point in having a new one so soon. However, since most of us do not find the first Galaxy Gear a worthy buy (check out our review of it for details), Samsung probably wants to do things right with a new-generation Android smartwatch.

CES 2014 debuts early next week, so we will see then if a new Galaxy Gear is indeed what this tweet is all about.

They also came out with the Galaxy Note III in 2013 (plus lots of other smartphones and tablets), and yet it's only the Gear that's being pictured.

It's a fitness bracelet. That's already been revealed by Samsung. It'll compete with Nike and Fitbit.

I hear you're able to share it with your buddies too. Apparently the bluetooth feature is so that it can detect when the Galaxy Condom is in use and will block any female contact from contacting your phone until it senses you have removed it.

It's truly amazing how far technology has become within the past decade. 2014 will be a great year for technology and phones. We are now living in a world where wearable technology will be cool and amazing. I wonder what will be around in the next 5 years or so. Things are coming out so rapidly and they might not be the best ( galaxy gear ) but that leaves room for improvement. I wonder if they'll ever run out of new things to put in phones? Besides processors and what not.

I hope they will just release an affordable feature watch phone with only call and text capabilities. The size of such devices makes it difficult to install a big battery pack. The Android OS is too power demanding.

And it's Android under the skin, which needs lots of power and resources. I thought they was going to use the A9 Cortex Exynos4412 QC CPU....? Which PhoneArena mentioned few months ago....?

I would like gear 2 to include a heart rate monitor. Boost up the volume of the speaker phone, noisy outdoor use of the watch is still a challenge. Endomondo software support. Meet those and i will buy the gear 2.

What is the logic of designing the screen in a potrait layout and not landscape? With a potrait screen orientation you can only make it so big before the face of the watch overhangs the sides of most people's wrist. Whereas, in a landscape orientation, you can increase the screen size and still have a watch is that more comfortable and suitable for most wrists...

The main advantage of landscape is easier typing and reading. It is possible to have a landscape watch screen without sticking beyond the watch band provided the screen is parallel to the watchband instead of perpendicular to it However, such a screen would be difficult to read if it was on top of the wrist. This could be remedied by putting the in-line screen beneath the wrist instead of on top. In this beneath-the-wrist setup, the screen could be read easily by raising your forearm vertically with your wrist facing your face. In this position, the screen would be horizontal and well positioned for tapping with the fingers of your other hand. The beneath-the-wrist screen position would also have the advantage of giving more privacy to notifications; they would be obscured when the wrist is held normally. With the screen beneath the wrist, the top of the wrist could be just a watchband, or it could have a watch face, camera and supplementary battery, with the upper and lower halves being connected by two short custom watchbands on either side that incorporated the necessary wiring to connect the two halves.
