Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition, a limited edition of the recently launched smartwatch. The Astro Edition smartwatch features an astrolabe-inspired design on the bezel. The astrolabe is an ancient instrument that helped scientists and travelers tell the time and find their way while traveling.
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition will be available in the Middle East and North Africa region. This is Samsung’s tribute to the region’s heritage of innovative and scientific contributions to astronomy, mathematics and time. The limited edition smartwatch will be available in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Turkey.
The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition comes in only one size (47 mm) and features an Astro Bezel that depicts constellations, stars, and other space objects. Samsung has also added astrolabe-inspired features in the smartwatch software, including on-dial compass complications and lunar/solar phases. The watch allows users to track the movements of the sun and moon directly from their wrist, thanks to its exclusive watch face.
Samsung says the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition comes with an exclusive purchase offer that includes an extra fabric strap, Astro Edition collectibles, and access to Samsung’s exclusive VIP store. While the company has not announced pricing for the smartwatch yet, it will be available on Samsung.com starting August 2, 2023.
