Samsung Gear A watch may not need smartphone to function

Samsung is determined to create a true all-in-one device, and the Samsung Gear A smartwatch could be that device.

New reports indicate that the smartwatch, which used to be dubbed the Samsung Orbis, will launch in two versions. One version of the Gear A watch will connect to your phone via Bluetooth, as most smartwatches do.

The other will do so via 3G and features calling support. This means that you’ll be able to use the data connection and make and receive phone calls through the smartwatch without having a smartphone connected.

Samsung’s Gear A smartwatch is still tipped to feature a round face. It looks as though the Gear A could have a classic feel, and will be more independent than other smartwatches.
