Earlier today, Samsung today unveiled the Gear S3.Ã‚Â Merging the worlds of analog watch-making and mobile innovation, the device is one that boasts a traditional, premium design, standalone connectivity, life proof features and an expanded ecosystem.
The new device is available in two versions: the Gear S3 frontier and the Gear S3 classic. Inspired by the active explorer, the Gear S3 frontier exudes a rugged outdoor look with durable materials that fuse form and function. The Gear S3 classic, meanwhile, pays homage to the minimalist, elegant styles embodied by traditional timepieces.
Gorilla Glass SR+ and IP68 certification enable the smartwatch to function in extreme environments, while a Full Color Always On Display complements its analog aesthetic. Embedded MST technology lets users use Samsung Pay just about anywhere, making wallets a thing of the past.
Let’s take a look at how it compares to the Gear S2.
