Motorola and LG have already announced the Android Wear running Moto 360 and G Watch respectively. But Samsung was still using its own Tizen OS for its smartwatches such as Gear, Gear Fit, etc.

According to a new report by CNET, Samsung might introduce new smartwatches running Android Wear. Also, Samsung is said to be working on both, Snapdragon and Exynos processor based smartwatches.
