Samsung smartwatch

If Samsung's latest patent filings are anything to go by, it looks like the manufacturer is mulling smartwatches with rounded displays, much like Motorola's upcoming Moto 360.

The folks over at MobileGeeks have managed to uncover three new smartwatch design patents that highlight a camera on the bracelet that is leveraged for a new gesture recognition system and a charging port at the clasp in addition to the rounded displays. It is unclear as to how the gesture recognition system will be implemented, but this isn't the first time we've seen gesture interactions from Samsung, as patents from last year also featured a similar gesture-driven navigation.

What do you guys think of the design? Would you be interested if Samsung launched a smartwatch with a rounded screen?
