The demand for a gadget that can fully keep up with people working on the go led to the development of smartwatches. We've seen a few products released this year, particularly Sony SmartWatch and Samsung Galaxy Gear.

Rumor has it that Samsung is ready to unveil Galaxy Gear 2 on January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. It has a 4GB- internal memory and a built-in GPS. Unlike its predecessor, Gear 2 comes with music and running apps.
Other companies set to follow the trend are Sony, Nike, and Apple. Sony, like Samsung, is ready to launch a cooler version of their SmartWatch. Insiders say Nike is gearing up to release its own product on the first half of 2014 while Apple plans to sell two versions of their iWatches next year. Whether these rumors will pan out or not, we'll just have to wait and see.
