    Samsung has 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. An astrolabe is an ancient tool that helped scientists and travelers know time and find their way while traveling.

    The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition will be available in the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region. It is a homage from Samsung to the region's legacy of innovative and scientific contributions in astronomy, mathematics, and time. The limited edition smartwatch will be available in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Türkiye.

    The Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition comes in just one size (47mm) and features an ‘Astro Bezel' that depicts constellations, stars, and other space bodies. Samsung has also added features inspired by the astrolabe in the smartwatch's software, including a compass complication on the dial and lunar/solar phases. The watch allows users to track the movements of the sun and moon right from their wrist, thanks to the exclusive watch face.

    Samsung says that the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic Astro Edition comes with an exclusive purchase offer that includes an additional fabric strap, Astro Edition collectibles, and access to Samsung's VIP exclusive promotion store. While the company hasn't announced the pricing of the smartwatch yet, it will be available from Samsung.com starting August 2, 2023.
