Samsung Gear S3 has made its way to the Canadian shores in two variants – Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier – and has been tagged with a suggested retail price of $469.
Samsung calls it a smartwatch that packs the aesthetics of a traditional watch featuring advanced mobile technology to suit the needs of one and all. Seamlessly integrated are features such as GPS and speakers, Bluetooth capabilities and IP68 rating to withstand dust and dirt enabling you to do everything – from work to weekend escapades. The Gear S3 can withstand up to 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes under water so users can get through their day, regardless of weather conditions.
The Samsung Gear S3 is a smartwatch that is made for everyone – from style gurus to those adventure enthusiasts. Both Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier versions are framed with Samsung’s signature rotating bezel and the crisp watch faces feature a full colour always-on display making it easier and more convenient.
Gear S3 Frontier is designed for those who have an active soul. Evoking a rugged outdoor look, the Gear S3 Frontier has a durable style that blends form and function, ideal for any environment.
The Gear S3 Classic on the other hand is inspired by iconic timepieces and was designed with meticulous attention to detail – with its size and shape chosen to attain the same consistency and balance of a well-crafted luxury watch.
You can take and make calls thanks to the Gear S3’s built-in speaker. You will also be able to check voicemails and hear alarms is now convenient. With its 4GB internal storage, you can now load the Gear S3 with songs that you like to listen to while on the move and due to Bluetooth capability, users can drop the weight of their smartphone by pairing it with a Bluetooth headset or through the built-in speaker.
Another awesome thing about the Gear S3 is no need of charging every day. With the Gear S3, users can go for up to four days before having to charge it – its battery lasts that long.
For explorers, the Gear S3 is quite handy thanks to its built-in GPS. With the Gear S3 accurately monitoring daily fitness activities, you can get fit and stay connected while on the move. Thanks to the altimeter, barometer and speedometer, users can track altitude, speed, and plan for the weather.
The Gear S3 expands the Galaxy ecosystem and Samsung smartwatch portfolio, which includes the Gear S2. A smaller and stylish option available in both Rose Gold and Platinum, the Gear S2 is ideal for those who are on-the-go and have admiration for minimal and modern design.
Samsung Electronics continues to be recognized for its innovation in the market place. The Gear S3 was included as one of 35 Samsung products that recently received the prestigious International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017 Innovation Award, which was announced in November 2016.
