The Galaxy Watch is the fourth-generation Gear smartwatch from Samsung, and it takes elements from both the Gear S2 and the Gear S3. Well, the one thing it takes from the Gear S2 is the size. To be more precise: Samsung is bringing the Galaxy Watch in a 42mm flavor with a 1.2-inch display like the Gear S2. The Gear S3 didn’t offer a 42mm version and was, therefore, not too suitable for those with small wrists, so the 42mm Galaxy Watch should entice plenty of Gear S2 owners to finally upgrade.

While our review of the Galaxy Watch will go into detail about how it’s better than its predecessors, some of you might be wondering what the differences are between the Galaxy Watch and the Gear S2 when it comes to design. You can get a fair idea in the pictures below of the two watches side by side. The smartwatch on the left is the new one and the one on the right is the Gear S2 classic. For more on the Galaxy Watch, do check out our hands-on impressions.
