Android Wear's position in the smartwatch market is now at an awkward state, and as a result of this, companies like Samsung and Fitbit have a chance to thrive.

The FCC filing from Samsung shows off the new device which closely resembles Samsung's series of Gear smartwatches. Based on recent reports, Samsung will be pulling up its socks and getting back into the game with the release of its next sports watch and it could be as soon as this month. The device carries a model number of SM-R600 and capable of monitoring heart rate. If you are the one who gets confused choosing between a smartwatch and fitness tracker, just wait for Samsung's next announcement that could take place at IFA 2017. Samsung has also requested that the documents regarding further details of the smart device be confidential. Exactly what Samsung will bring differently to the market in terms of a sports-oriented device is yet to be seen.

The device goes by the name Samsun Gear Sport, and it would seem to be a fairly decent bet that it's coming with rugged intentions.

The next Samsung event is all but guaranteed to be home to the Galaxy Note 8 - but that's not all.
