Samsung applies for Smartwatch Wheel UX and Wheel W trademarks

Samsung’s current range of Tizen Smartwatches are the Gear / Neo / Gear 2 and Gear S, but as we have previously reported, the company is looking towards something new now in the form of a round watch. The new device is Dubbed the Gear A, and we know that Samsung is serious about it judging from the amount of development time that has been spent on it.
The watch has a circular design with a rotary bezel ring and a digital crown for the user experience and now Samsung has applied for the trademark Wheel UX at the Korean Intellectual Property Office, which suggests that there will be more round watches on the horizon as they have also trademarked the name Gear W.
