Interface of GEAK Watch2

GEAK Watch, the smartwatch brand backed by China’s leading online gaming company Shanda, is one of the first Chinese manufacturers that released Android-powered smartwatches so as to capitalize on the rising smart wearables trend. After announcing a sales of more than 300K units for its Android 4.1-powdered GEAK Watch1 in April this year, the company continues its efforts and is going to unveil the second generation product GEAK Watch2 before the end of this year.

GEAK Watch2 features a round dial design, as Miles Xu, product manager of GEAK Watch, hinted in a previous interview with TechNode. According to Xu, round dial plate complies with people’s design aesthetics for a timepiece, while smartwatches with rectangular displays look too much like gadgets rather than watches. Moto 360, which is the first to feature a round-faced dial, creates a sensation among consumers when it was released earlier this year.
