However, analysts warned that a choice to limit the watch to functioning as an accessory to other Galaxy Android devices might limit its appeal. The introduction of the Galaxy smart watch comes as no surprise to the industry, which has been expecting Samsung to beat the likes of Apple - as well as watchmakers and other consumer electronics companies.
