However, it was later reported that they were actually just one-offs. In the latest twist to this story, it turns out that Samsung's upcoming smartwatch, dubbed 'Galaxy Watch,' may come with Wear OS after all. It's also being rumored to have a blood pressure monitor.

[Update: Maybe not] Samsung may be using Wear OS for its upcoming smartwatches instead of Tizen

Those of you who follow Samsung closely may have noticed that devices running Android or Android-based OSes (e.g. Galaxy S9, Galaxy J7, Galaxy Gear) all have the "Galaxy" in their name for the most part, whereas those that run Tizen/other software (e.g. Gear Fit, Gear S3, Z4) don't.

But with famed leaker Evan Blass's latest tweet, it seems like Samsung may actually be releasing a pair of Wear OS smartwatches.

The Verizon Wear24 is definitely one of the more interesting Wear smartwatches out there. Announced on the same day as the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport, it took three months to go on sale, four months after which it was permanently discontinued. Since then, we've seen it steadily dropping to insanely low prices, though the current figure of $49.99 does seem to be the bottom line. Nonetheless, it still represents the greatest value for money of any Android Wear/Wear OS watch.
