Samsung's updated Galaxy Gear smartwatches coming next week Samsung will unveil two new versions of their failed Galaxy Gear smartwatch at the Mobile World Congress event in Spain next week.
Most interestingly, one of the watches will run on Tizen rather than Android, making it one of the first commercial Tizen devices. In theory, a Tizen watch could sync across Android, iOS, Windows Phone and other devices, making it much more applicable than the original Galaxy Gear which could only sync with a handful of Samsung's Android phones.

All the devices will debut on February 24th during the company's Unpacked show.

Additionally, Samsung is said to have improved the Gear's battery life substantially, which could be a game changer. The first-generation model offered barely two days of life, compared to 4-7 days for the Pebble and other rival watches.
