The move is notable as Samsung has been running their own smartwatches on the proprietary Tizen OS, which has efficient battery performance but lacks third-party support. There will reportedly be multiple models, one running on Samsung's own Exynos chips and the other running on a Qualcomm processor.
LG and Motorola have already announced Android Wear devices, and both are expected to show them off at I/O, as well.
The I/O event begins on June 25th and is expected to have over 6000 developers present.
