Samsung Gear is setting itself apart from the crowd with new round smartwatches. The Samsung Gear S2 features a stylish circular face for those who prefer the classic look of the analog watch.
The Gear S2 was unveiled along with Samsung's new Galaxy Note 5 phablet and the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus smartphone at a press conference in New York. The S2 is not only unique in design, but in function as well, running Samsung's own Tizen operating system rather than the Android Wear OS. A rotating bezel (the metallic ring around the face of the watch) will zoom in and out and control movement in games and apps.
Round smartwatches are rarer than their practical-looking square counterparts. By changing something as simple as the shape of its smartwatch, Samsung may capture the attention of customers looking for an elegant, classic alternative.
