Samsung's smart watch is coming soon, and here's a sneak peek at the app to go with it.

Just in case there were still any doubts about the device's existence, the usually reliable Evleaks has screenshots from the companion app that will pair with the Gear.

The screenshots reveal some expected features, like the fact the Gear will use the Samsung Apps store, but also some new tantalising hints at other functions. Find My Watch, for example, is possibly a locator for lost Gears, and it looks like the watch may have wireless charging.

There's still not much known about the Galaxy Gear, but rumours include a dual-core Exynos processor, a 1.67-inch screen and a mic and speaker built in to the strap.
