After the overwhelmingly positive response Motorola received to the circular Moto 360 it seems competitors want to try their hand at it. This past weekend LG began teasing a circular wrist dweller of their own, and now another big name is rumored to be getting in on the fun.

According to SamMobile, Samsung is working on a circular smart watch of their own. We’re almost certain it wouldn’t be ready in time for IFA Berlin, though with the Gear Live having just launched and the Gear Solo (a SIM-enabled Gear) rumored to be coming next week we’re not sure we’d fancy another option so soon.

That’s all we know so far. There’s no indication on which OS Samsung will look to use (Tizen or Android Wear), though we’re personally keeping fingers and toes crossed for the latter. With the feint exception of the Samsung Gear Live, Samsung’s devices haven’t exactly been the prettiest on the market.

We’re hoping a circular smart watch design would help inspire Samsung to come up with something fresh, sleek and slim just as they’ve started to do on the phones side of things. Let us know if you’d consider buying a circular Samsung smart watch in the comments below!
