Lookbook provides a glimpse into the next Samsung smartwatch through video.

The new Samsung Gear S2 won't just be chic, but may also come with an innovative UI. The short video highlights some of the upcoming features with the slogan "Ready to turn".  These include various Circular Apps that have been optimized for the shape of the Gear S2.

The Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ include biconvex Super AMOLED panels that aren't just attractive, but also useful. It's not far-fetched to say that the circular screen design of the Gear S2 will play significantly into the software and will be a large focus in Samsung's advertising efforts. The embedded video appears to be only the start.

As reported earlier, Samsung had teased the Gear S2 smartwatch during the Unpacked event in NYC where the manufacturer revealed the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+. Details and specifications on the smartwatch remain under wraps. The official premiere of the device is expected to come this September at IFA.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
