In terms of appearance, both these smartwatches feature a circular-shaped dial but it is only the Classic variant that has a rotating bezel. These products share the vast majority of the specifications and features. Some of the noticeable differences are related to the wrist size options, build material, and Corning Gorilla Glass display protection.
