Samsung Galaxy Watch 6 Brings Back Rotating Bezel, You're Welcome:

Samsung went back to the drawing board with the Galaxy Watch 6 and returned with a fan-favorite feature, the physical rotating bezel. This year there are two models, but only one has the bezel: the aluminum Galaxy Watch 6 and stainless steel, bezel-bearing Galaxy Watch 6 Classic. The watches arrive Aug. 11, announced alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5, Z Flip 5 and Tab S9 tablet revealed at the Galaxy Unpacked event in Seoul on Wednesday.

Both share the same sensors as last year's Galaxy Watch 5, but have a bigger battery and larger screens. While the new watches have incremental updates overall, the return of the bezel that was last seen on 2021's Galaxy Watch 4 Classic may be enough to convince owners of earlier watches to upgrade. Samsung's rugged, outdoors watch, the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, remains in the lineup.

The Galaxy Watch 6 series launches at a pivotal time for Android smartwatches, with more competition than ever. Google's Pixel Watch made its debut in 2022 and while its battery life wasn't perfect, its slick design paired with Fitbit's fitness tracking finesse helped it set the standard. Then there's the Ticwatch Pro 5, which doubles down on battery life and beats out the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic on price at $350. Like all Galaxy Watches since the series 4, the Galaxy Watch 6 is Android-only.
