It is commonly known that Samsung occasionally releases limited edition versions of their various wearable gadgets. Many of the brand’s devoted customers have grown accustomed to the Galaxy Watch Golf Editions, which are regularly introduced not long after the company’s standard models. On the other hand, this time around, Samsung introduced a fairly special limited-edition form of the Galaxy Watch that will only be available in a number of countries. The Galaxy Watch6 Classic Astro Edition is the first limited-edition Galaxy Watch that Samsung has ever released that is specifically dedicated to the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) area.
The new smartwatch, developed for exploration in mind, draws its inspiration from the region’s early astronomers and pioneers. The Galaxy Watch6 Classic Astro Edition has a revolving Black Astro bezel that is 47 millimetres long. Its design and software capabilities are reminiscent of an astrolabe in both appearance and function. Because the dial has a compass, wearers are able to monitor the movement of the sun and moon without having to take their hands off their wrists.
“Samsung’s Galaxy Watch6 Classic Astro Edition is a testament and tribute to the Middle East’s innovators and their historical prominence in the fields of mathematics, science, and innovation while simultaneously setting the stage for the region’s future pioneers,” said Omar Saheb, Regional Marketing Director at Samsung Electronics MENA. Omar Saheb, Regional Marketing Director at Samsung Electronics MENA, stated this. Even though Samsung did not provide any price information, the company said it will be accessible in certain MENA markets.
These markets include Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. Customers who purchase the Galaxy Watch6 Classic Astro Edition within a specific period will be eligible for an additional Fabric Band, Astro Edition collectables, and access to Samsung’s VIP exclusive promotion store (the specifics of the unique offer may differ depending on the market). Those interested can start purchasing it today directly from the Samsung online store, however the company notes that pricing and availability information will be released by the local branches in the coming days.
