Samsung reveal new Galaxy smartwatch in bid to compete with the Apple Watch

Samsung has revealed a new Galaxy smartwatch in its bid to take a bigger slice of the wearable market largely led by the Apple Watch.

Six months after introducing the first Galaxy Watch Active, the South Korean is launching a successor which continues to focus on fitness features.

Among the features is a rotating digital dial, in the form of a black touch-sensitive strip around the edges of the circular display, allowing users to navigate around the device with greater ease.

The announcement follows the unveiling of a new high-powered Galaxy Tab 6 tablet last week, and ahead of the next Galaxy Note smartphone launch on August 7.
