with the size of some smartphones, i'm sure some people would be better off with a watch for making calls and a tablet for content. I mean seriously... the galaxy note?

Samsung is planning a standalone smartwatch with a SIM card—meaning no tethered smartphone will be required. According to the report, Samsung's next watch will be a monster, with a cellular modem, GPS, a camera, and a heart rate monitor.

GPS and mobile data are typically left out of smartwatches because of battery life concerns. Mashing all the usual smartphone components into a watch while keeping the battery life respectable will be a huge challenge for Samsung.

Samsung's first smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, was released only eight months ago, and since then the company has followed up with the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit. Along the way, the company switched from Android to Tizen, its home-grown, Linux-based OS. The report says Samsung will be sticking with Tizen for this version, as well, and the watch is expected to launch in June or July. Android Wear is expected out during that timeframe, too.

With no need to tether to a smartphone, is the expectation that we leave our smartphone at home? Would anyone want to completely depend on a smartwatch to stay connected?
