Samsung's Gear S3 Embraces a Traditional Timepiece Design
Samsung’s new Gear S3 line features a more traditional watch design, compared to its Gear S2 predecessor, which will be available in two styles, the Frontier and the Classic. The Frontier is the sportier of the two with a more outdoor-specific look while the Classic takes on a more luxurious aesthetic. The Frontier is more feature-loaded with a 4G LTE connectivity option. However, both have a 46mm case made from 316L stainless steel which surround a 1.3-inch AMOLED display, slightly bigger than the S2 lineup. Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and NFC are on board for both watches, and each model has an accelerometer, gyroscope, heart-rate sensor, and barometer built into it. The new watches still run on Tizen and have Samsung Pay’s magnetic secure transmission technology built into them. Of course with the Frontier’s LTE option, you can make and receive calls without actually using your handheld phone. No release date has been announced as of yet but they are set to go on sale later this year.
