Samsung is preparing to debut its first Android Wear-powered smartwatch next week during Google’s I/O developer conference, according to a new report from Cnet. The company has been working on two different models of the wearable, but there isn’t an word yet which of those versions will be revealed during the event.

Samsung has already tried to jump into the smartwatch market with its various Gear watches. Google first showed off a watch-specific version of Android, dubbed “Android Wear,” earlier this year.

Last night the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple is growing ever-closer to releasing its own smartwatch contender, and is also working on multiple models of its own entry. The so-called “iWatch” is reportedly set to debut this fall.
