Geared Up: Samsung Improves Gear Smartwatch
Samsung’s revised Gear S3 smartwatch extends the features of its predecessors with a twist of something new. Available in two styles, Frontier and Classic versions, Gear S3 has mass appeal. It combines IP68 water resistance, wireless fast-charging, SOS and location-tracking capabilities, and a dedicated speaker. The smartwatch is compatible with a range of Samsung smartphones, and applications from the Galaxy store can be downloaded directly onto the Gear S3. The Classic edition allows you to use any 22mm watchstrap, so that you can match it to your favorite outfits.
Lasting four days on a single charge, the Gear S3 also features a 16 million color Super AMOLED screen with Corning Gorilla Glass SR+, an Always On Display and a customizable user interface. The Gear S3’s signature rotating bezel allows a range of functions, including exercise programs, with its alti/barometer and speedometer tracking everything from altitude and atmospheric pressure to sudden changes in weather, distance traveled and speed. Newly added to the Gear S3 is a built-in speaker that allows you to activate voice messaging and listen to music. Whether using it to be connected or stay fit, this accessory is the perfect companion to get you in gear.
