The report mentioned that the Gem would join the likes of Apple's and Microsoft-LG's rumoured iWatch and wrist-worn gadgets respectively, with Samsung just launching its Galaxy Gear smartwatch that is designed to work with its Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1, which is set to be released next year.

According to a recent study, more than 373 million smartwatches will ship by 2020 compared to the 15 million projected for 2014, which suggests that the watch could soon become a major part of the mobile market.
