How about a touch rotating bezel? The bezel doesn't actually rotate, but as you move your finger around the bezel, it appears to rotate and acts just like the current bezel but without the hardware.
The rotating bezel is my main reason to get the Galaxy Watch to begin with. Try tried to go minimal with the rotating bezel back on the Gear S2 series, but eventually that model cant survive with the scratches and scuffs and the Gear S2 classic lasts longer. I actually prefer the classic look on the current Galaxy watches, the Active is nice but it'll make people look more techy, not classy.
I'm glad that the rotating bezel is going away. It was cool, but I would like my watch to look more minimal. Having a flat touch bezel may help the watch match the aesthetic of the galaxy phones, just like how the apple watch matches the iphones.
