Samsung trying to beat Apple to market with ‘iWatch’ rival?

“Screenshots alleged to be of a forthcoming Samsung smartwatch have been posted on the Korean message board Ruliweb (via SlashGear), suggesting possible competition for the rumored Apple ‘iWatch,'” Ben Lovejoy reports for MacRumors.

“It is unclear whether the watch will be a self-contained product, or rely on a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone,” Lovejoy reports. “The watch screenshots indicate that the device is running software called AltiusOS beta2, and an app navigation screen bears a resemblance to the tiles seen on Windows Phone.”

Lovejoy reports, “SlashGear notes that the screenshots are 500×500 pixels, and suggests that this may be the resolution of the screen.”
