For those of you who were looking at buying the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, you might want to just hold off on that as there's rumors that the South Korean company is working on the Galaxy Gear 2 smartwatch for a release early next year.

Korean language news site, Daum, reports from unnamed industry sources that Samsung is already working on a second-generation Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Daum is reporting that the second-generation Galaxy Gear smartwatch would work on a larger range of Samsung smartphones, compared to the first-generation Galaxy Gear which will only work with the Galaxy Note III smartphone at launch.

It's a bit worrying that Samsung would launch a second Galaxy Gear so close to the first-generation unit, but this just makes Omate's TrueSmart "Smartwatch 2.0" device stand out much more.
