Some people were a little surprised that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 2 wasn't unveiled at the Galaxy S20 launch event on February 11; as of writing it's been a long time since the original Galaxy Watch launched, and smartwatch fans were hoping for a new iteration. But the lack of the device isn't just understandable, it was actually expected.

The Samsung Galaxy Watch launched in late 2018, and before that the Samsung Gear S3 came out in late 2016. It's clear, then, that the company employs two-year cycles with its smartwatches, releasing them at the end of the year, away from its Unpacked event and towards the Galaxy Note release.
