Samsung will announce a new wearable on Wednesday

Samsung took to Twitter on Monday to tease an event it’s hosting in Berlin on Wednesday, August 30. While we don’t know exactly what the firm is planning to showcase, it did reveal that it’s some form of wearable, leading us to believe it’s the upcoming Gear Sport (SM-R600).

Rumored to be aimed at fitness fanatics, the Gear Sport is expected to ship with a host of precise health-monitoring features, including a dedicated swimming and rowing mode, in addition to a slew of the latest internals, like a dual-core Exynos processor and at least 1GB of RAM.

According to the unit’s certification documentation, the Gear Sport will be the firm’s first wearable to ship running its in-house Tizen 3.0 operating system out of the box. It also looks like it will support both standard Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and Wi-Fi Direct for expedited data transfer.

We’ll be reporting live from the venue in Berlin, so be sure to check back on Wednesday to find out exactly what Samsung’s been working on. If you want to kill some time between now and then, why not check out our hands-on coverage of the recently-announced Galaxy Note 8?
