VP of Samsung drops the proverbial Smart Watch bomb

So it looks like Samsung are hopping aboard the smart watch train along side Apple. Lets be clear about that, not on the same train, it will be a train on the same set of tracks, heading to the same destination. Who will arrive first?

Three of my biggest passions in life are technology, vehicles and watches, so when I heard that Samsung would be looking into smart watches, I got a wee bit excited to say the least.

It has been noted by my beautiful fiancé that “nobody needs 14 watches as there are only 7 days in the week”.

The way I look at it; if girls can have 27 pairs of shoes, then I can have more than 7 watches haha. Anyway, enough about my addiction, back to the awesome news at hand.

Bloomberg reports mobile executive VP Lee Young Hee said during an interview that “We are preparing products for the future, and the watch is definitely one of them.” As to when, he only indicated it would be important to be the first one to commercialize it so consumers can use one meaningfully — something Samsung should know, since it’s built many watch / phone combos over the years. “

Above pictured is the S9110 touchscreen watchphone from 2009, so if that is anything to go by then then it looks like Samsung are set to release stoater of a watch (Scottish for nice watch lol).
