You know, something like "Fortnite of Duty Clash Royale".

"At Samsung, we have a long history of providing consumers with choice, while maintaining innovation within our products, and we are excited to continue the proud heritage of our Galaxy line with our wearables", said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. Samsung says it's working with more than 30 carriers in more than 15 countries to bring LTE-enabled Galaxy Watches to users who want an untethered smartwatch.

Health is a major focus for the Galaxy Watch, and as such Samsung Health is now expanded with new stress management and breathing features, as well as a collection of 21 indoor exercises and 39 tracked workouts. Were the rumours true? We will send you an email invite as soon as you can play.

We can expect Amazon and Flipkart to offer the device for pre-order as well. Find out right here.

The focus on gamer-friendly features appears to be a shift away from Samsung's previous positioning of the Note as a productivity-boosting device, and is an attempt to lure younger customers as the company's smartphone sales falter.

For low usage, the battery can last up to seven days. That's just the base model, though.

Naturally, Samsung has equipped the Note 9 with the latest processor and 8GB of memory as well as that hefty amount of storage space. It's a better fit for medium and smaller wrists.

Samsung is pushing this watch's health features, which go beyond simple activity-tracking (though it does that, too).

And that redesign really is key, arguably, to the success of the Galaxy Watch, as despite this new smartwatch packing some neat new features, the fact that it looks more like a regular watch will no-doubt be the foremost decider in whether potential adopters pull the trigger. The 42mm comes in rose gold and black, and the larger 46mm model is silver. If you remember how the Galaxy Tab 4 was heralded thanks to its DeX functionality - that is also present here, allowing users to be productive with the Note9 and a big screen.

The Galaxy Watch also comes with the trademark circular, rotating bezel while embracing the digital look with Always On Display, in addition to improved usability.

Seamlessly connected devices have been a huge focus of Unpacked this year, so this makes sense.
