Fingerprint sensors seem to be the next big thing when it comes to mobile devices, but have you ever thought about having them in your smartwatch?

The company behind the fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S5, Synaptics, has revealed that next year the same technology could find its way onto Samsung’s smartwatches.

Whilst there are no plans yet as to what use the sensor may have on a smartwatch, or if it will even extend past just unlocking the device, it seems Synaptics are confident companies will begin to adapt their technology to wearables, and Samsung will be the first to do so.
