Standalone Samsung smartwatch running Tizen coming June or July

Last updated:

Samsung is preparing a standalone smartwatch running Tizen that will be able to place and receive calls, and send email, all without the need to be tethered to a smartphone.

According to a report in the WSJ, it may not be named the "Solo", but it will be part of the Tizen-powered Samsung Gear lineup, rather than the Android-powered Galaxy Gear brand.

The device will have other functionality that we've seen in the Gear line including GPS, Bluetooth, a camera, and a heart rate monitor.

Samsung is reportedly already in talks with wireless carriers in the US . . .
