Now a new Samsung patent has been discovered for smartphone connected sports glasses, which could possibly be the Samsung Gear Glass.
The Samsung patent was discovered by the WSJ, and it is for a pair of sports glasses which connect to your smartphone and allow you to perform a number of tasks.
“This design is of a type [of glasses] with earphones integrated, allowing [users] to take phone calls and listen to music during workouts,”
So whilst this device which would be paired with a smartphone, would work differently than Google Glass, which is a stand alone device, it would provide a similar sort of functionality to Google Glass.
Maybe Samsung see’s their new Samsung Gear Glass as a smartphone accessory like the Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch, rather than a stand alone device.
A number of other companies are also rumored to be working on similar devices, we recently heard that Microsoft have been testing prototypes of wearable devices similar to Google Glass.
