App maker Spritz announced that its easy reading app will be launched with Samsung's yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S5 and the recently launched Gear 2 smartwatch, according to Re/Code.

The app can display between 100 and 1,000 words per minute, depending on the user's preference. As of now, the Spritz app can be used for six languages including English, French, Spanish, Korean, and German, the report detailed.
