Available for pre-order now and shipping August 24th, Samsung’s new smartwatch looks beautiful. They are really betting hard on the desire for smart watches that appear more like traditional, mechanical timepieces.
While it’s always a bit hard to tell from 2D photos, the watch faces do look very realistic and the round bezel helps the watch seem more like a standard watch.
Feature-for-feature, Samsung has put out a high-spec, high-end product. But the basis of competition is in overall user experience and it remains to be seen if Samsung’s Tizen OS matches the beauty of what we can see of the watch hardware.
