Edge smartwatch concept

Samsung’s Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone is a rather nice looking piece of tech and it is quite possible that Samsung may bring its cutting edge display technology to its range of smartwatches too, at some point in the future. Until then, we can gawk at this awesome looking Edge smartwatch concept, which was put together by Kovacs Apor at Maform design studio.

The watch concept features the same curved sides as Samsung’s smartphone design, and the increased display real estate may actually prove very useful. I can imagine that housing apps and navigation at the sides of the watch might also be a quicker way to get around.

The designers also envisioned the smartwatch with a simple clip mechanism on the back, allowing for a quick change of watch straps and the ability to pin the watch’s main body onto other items, such as a charger or onto your lapel, should you so desire.

Sadly, Samsung doesn’t appear to be working on a watch design like this. The next upcoming smartwatch from the company, the Gear A, is said to be a round design, more like the LG Watch Urbane or the Moto 360. The Gear A is expected to launch alongside the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus at Samsung’s Unpacked event on August 13th, or, failing that, at IFA in September.

What do you think about this Edge smartwatch concept?
