Samsung just unveiled a brand new wearable.

At its Unpacked event on Thursday to introduce the new Galaxy Note 9 , Samsung also revealed the new Galaxy Watch.

The watch isn't Samsung's first wearable, but it's the first with the Galaxy brand name — in the past, Samsung's smartwatches have been under the "Gear" branding.

The new Galaxy Watch will be a fitness-focused smartwatch. It will have 39 different exercises built in, will be able to automatically detect six of the most common workouts, and will also have sleep tracking. The watch is waterproof and can be worn swimming as well.

The Galaxy Watch has LTE connectivity, which means you can make calls or listen to music without being tethered to your smartphone. The watch comes in two sizes, three colors, has an AMOLED display, and "military-grade durability."

Samsung says the watch will get "several days" of battery life on a single charge. It will be able to charge wirelessly on Samsung's new Duo wireless charging pad, which can charge a smartphone and the watch at the same time.

There's no word yet on pricing and availability, but we'll update this post as soon as we hear.
