Samsung is reportedly working on a new smartwatch beast in the form of the #Gear S4. The device will be available with features of a fitness band. Nonetheless, some speculations suggest the Samsung Gear S4 smartwatch would be equipped with features of both Gear Fit and Gear S3.

Since the smartwatch sales of Samsung are declining, chances are the South Korean tech giant might be consolidating its wearables portfolio. However, according to SamMobile, the tech company has revealed that the concept of the new device was taken from Gear Fit 2 and Gear S3. The details about the Samsung Gear S4 smartwatch were revealed in an e-mail survey sent to the tech company’s SmartLab Plus program members, Samsung’s consumer engagement program where the tech giant seeks the comments of the customers about its forthcoming devices.

The company email noted that the upcoming wearable would provide better comfort compared to Samsung’s current smartwatch lineup, which comes along with thin straps. To help customers personalize the look of the new device, the straps will be replaceable. The Gear S4 is expected to be waterproof, which gives users the choice to use the device while swimming. This feature may provide an edge to the new Gear S4 as the rival smartwatches that have a display are not waterproof, while the smartwatches that are swim-proof does not have a display.

As reported by the Wearable, the focal point of the company’s new device would be on fitness tracking, which includes sports coaching as well as weight and calorie management. The device will also focus on inactivity alerts, such as taking a break from driving and stay active on a plane.
