More details emerge about Samsung's 'Galaxy Gear' smart watch

Ahead of the expected Sept. 4 unveiling of Samsung Electronics' "Galaxy Gear" smart watch, more details of the gadget are leaking online. According to screenshots posted by widely followed mobile leaker Evleaks, the watch will be managed by an Android app that allows users to change clock faces and load new apps via the Samsung Apps store. And, according to AmongTech's unnamed sources at a Samsung warehouse facility, the Galaxy Gear will have 10 hours of battery life, but it's not clear if that is for total on-screen time or if users will have the ability to dim or turn off the watch's expected 2.5-inch OLED display. The device is also expected to have a camera. Article

Meanwhile, in other smart watch news, Google's (NASDAQ:GOOG) Motorola Mobility unit submitted a patent application to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (initially filed in February of 2012 and published today) for an electronic device designed "to enfold about an appendage of a user." The gadget is likely a smart watch of some sort and includes gaze detection, touchscreen controls and a hinged dual display system, according to Engadget. Article
