Samsung is cooking up something. Of course, that is always the case but any news or clues of an upcoming smartwatch can be exciting. A patent has recently surfaced about a round smartwatch with rotating bezel. It’s still a concept/patent application but the idea is actually interesting.
The design shows a rotating bezel—in this case, a ring that can be controlled by simple rotation. Tasks and To-Do’s are shown in a pie which makes it more fun to look at. It could just be one view though but we’re not sure.
Samsung is not new to the smartwatch market but it will only gain more competitors. Right now, it’s one of the forerunners in the industry. Apple might rival Samsung in this area but the Cupertino company has yet to release the Apple Watch and prove to the market that theirs is better.
A rotating bezel on a smartwatch is definitely new but some sports watches already have this kind of feature. The patent application was published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) this week. The document showed that this was submitted last February.
A new round smartwatch with a rotating bezel from Samsung , actually, from any manufacturer is nice. We’re not sure if Samsung will release such smartwatch but I don’t see any reason why not. We hope this one will arrive with the Galaxy S6 or as one of the new Gear watches. We’ll see.
