We’ve all heard of Samsung’s plans of cooking up its own smartwatch, a watch with features like the Galaxy S4, but never really had a clue as to what the Korean tech giant plans to call it. Now, a report has revealed what it may call its wearable device. A trademark filing suggests that Samsung may call its smartwatch the “Samsung GEAR.”

Phandroid reports, “We’ve been doing a bit of trademark snooping recently, and came up one one very interesting character mark by the big, bad Samsung. It’s being called the “Samsung GEAR,” and while the primary description suggests the name could apply to literally everything under the sun, the secondary one specifically focuses on watches, clocks, wristbands, bracelets and the like which can communicate with phones, PCs and tablets using the internet and other communication methods. It’s a fitting name, when you think about it — analog clocks and watches use small gears to turn the various hands. It would certainly be very easy to market in that regard.”

We have yet to hear from Samsung about the GEAR. Stay tuned for more updates.
