Samsung will be releasing its first smartwatch along with its Galaxy Note III at an event on September 4, according to SamMobile.

In March this year, Samsung confirmed for the first time that it is developing a smartwatch, which would rival Pebble and the oft-speculated device that Apple is said to be working on.

SamMobile has also published a prototype design of the purported smartwatch based on patent filings, which can be seen here:

The Galaxy Gear smartwatch will reportedly act as a companion accessory for Samsung’s Galaxy phones, SamMobile notes.
