It is expected that the Galaxy Gear will be announced alongside the forthcoming Galaxy Note 3 at an event in Berlin. So, far it seems that the Gear will act as a companion device rather than a fully-fledged replacement for phones; a decision that might be especially beneficial for phablet owners.

With this in mind, AT&T and Filip Technologies have entered into an agreement that allows the telecommunications giant to bring the FilLIP child locator smartwatch to the US market in the coming months. According to the deal, AT&T will act as the exclusive network provider for the device as well as controlling distribution and billing.

Bloomberg are similarly predicting that,” the global watch industry will generate $60 billion in sales” and pointing out that a successful smartwatch that tied into a ‘hardware ecosystem’ could lock customer to a specific platform.
