It looks like Samsung has a new smartwatch in the works. Nowhere in the FCC listing does Samsung actually list that the Gear Sport is a smartwatch per-say, but the rounded body of the gadget indicates that it will have a smartwatch-like appearance at the very least.

Samsung confirmed less than two weeks ago that it's working on a wearable device that it's not really a full-fledged smartwatch nor a simple fitness band. It's not clear if it'll take the shape of a smartwatch or be closer to a long fitness tracker, but the most recent Gear devices have all had identical round shapes. The device, based on the provided image in the listing, also comes with a round dial, which follows the Gear design aesthetic closely.

Technology companies, which suffered the brunt of the selling a day earlier, were back in the lead Friday. Benchmark U.S. crude added 39 cents to settle at $49.56 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Besides the fact that it features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support, there aren't any other details about its specs. Whether a significant update to the watch's Tizen OS will be made or not 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. Making a new model that's more tailored to exercise would help it better compete with Apple and could get more people interested in the product.
