Renders of next Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch show a more rounded design

Peter, 09 January 2019

Unofficial renders of the Samsung Gear Sport successor have arrived, courtesy of @OnLeaks. The CAD-based images show a rounder, smoother design of the device, which is codenamed “Pulse”.

The watch is round and has a smooth bezel (similar to Gear S2). Last year’s Sport had a more square-ish design and a knurled bezel. Even the two plungers have gone from rectangular to round. The watch will be available in Black, Silver, Green and Pink Gold.

The screen size is likely 1.2” again, matching the current Sport. Note that it’s not clear if the bezel will be rotating or not, but seeing how it’s the defining feature of the Gear smartwatches, we doubt Samsung will drop it.

The “Pulse” code name for the new Gear Sport is perhaps a hint that Samsung will add ECG, after Apple and Withings. Chances are that the watch will be unveiled at Samsung's Unpacked event for the Galaxy S10 or a few days later at the MWC.
