Reportedly launching as four variants in August, Samsung is also said to be bringing back the physical rotating bezel back for the Galaxy Watch 2. Rumoured to be available in two sizes too, the Galaxy Watch 2 may also come in LTE and Wi-Fi only variants.
Alex Alderson,

With Samsung apparently set to release a new Galaxy Watch this year, SamMobile has reported that the company plans to bring the physical rotating bezel back, too. Samsung had replaced this with a touch-sensitive solution on the Galaxy Watch Active 2, while its predecessor lacked even that. 

Citing unknown sources, SamMobile suggests that it will operate in a similar manner to the one that Samsung included with the original Galaxy Watch. According to multiple certifications, the next Galaxy Watch will come in four variants. Samsung has codenamed these SM-R840, SM-R845, SM-R850 and SM-R855. The SM-R84x models will have a 41 mm watch face, with Samsung opting for a 45 mm face with the SM-R85x versions. Additionally, the SM-R840 and SM-R850 will be Wi-Fi only models, with LTE reserved for the SM-R845 and SM-R855.

Moreover, the Galaxy Watch 2 is expected to be waterproof up to 5 ATM and MIL-STD-810G certified. ECG functionality should be on board for all model too, as should GPS.
