Before you start salivating about the first real Apple Watch competitor for Android devices, Samsung’s recently unveiled Gear S2 smartwatches (there are two) still don’t have a price tag or release date attached. That said, the regular and “Classic” versions both look like the standard, round-faced watch you’re probably wearing on your wrist right now, but they feature a 1.2″ diameter face with 360×360 resolution, a dual core 1.2Ghz processor, 4 GB memory, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The regular edition is going to come with a rubberized band in dark gray or silver, but the “Classic” sits on a black leather band and matching case. While we don’t know anything about compatibility with specific phones yet either, it does appear that the “Classic” edition is on a 20mm standard lug, so changing the strap should be easy.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
