Next Samsung smartwatch may run Android Wear instead of TizenOS
There is no confirmation from the company yet. However, tipster Ice Universe seems to have got some leads on it.
Samsung has been using its Tizen OS in wearable devices, such as Galaxy Watch, Galaxy Watch Active2, Galaxy Watch LTE, and even the latest Galaxy Watch 3 smart watches. However, it looks like the company might soon be moving away from the Tizen operating system and may adapt Android Wear OS.

We are not sure when exactly Samsung plans to launch its next flagship smartwatch, however, looking from the launch pattern we might see the device coming sometime in August alongside the flagship ‘Note’ smartphone series.
While it is difficult to say how Samsung will implement Android Wear OS on its smartwatch, and if it will slap a new skin on top of it, one can expect better UI implementation, more features and guaranteed updates.
We can only wait and watch.
According to a recent report from a Korean news website, Samsung's Galaxy Watch 3 successor might feature a high precision blood glucose monitor. As per the report, the upcoming watch could use a non-invasive approach to monitoring a patient's blood sugar levels. It refers to a technology that the Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) last year worked on. The technique reportedly looks at the vibrations from molecules when a laser light is focused on it, making sense of the wavelengths caused by the movement. Samsung had claimed last year that their system helped them demonstrate one of the highest prediction accuracies among non-invasive technologies.
