Samsung didn’t just launch a powerful top-of-the-line flagship smartphone today. The South Korean electronics giant also launched a brand new smartwatch and it’s called the Galaxy Watch. It’s not a Gear S-whatever, it’s simply called the Galaxy Watch and I kinda like that.
Of course, that’s not the only thing that’s cool about it.
Samsung has begun rolling out its Tizen 3.0 with Value Pack update for the Samsung Gear S3. This is a major update for the Samsung smartwatch with a host of new features and UI enhancements.
Samsung’s Gear Sport looks like a pretty solid smartwatch. It’s got nearly all the awesome features of its bigger brother — the Gear S3 Frontier — adds swim-proofing while also coming in a body that’s both smaller and lighter.
But, our judgments so far have been based on super quick hands-on sessions with it. We didn’t really get to spend any quality time with the device and check out the accessories it comes with out of the box…until now. Here’s a closer look at the Samsung Gear Sport.
While Apple has its new Series 3 Watch, Samsung would like to remind you that they have a swim-proof smartwatch of their own. Ahead of its commercial availability, Samsung has released its first Gear Sport video to highlight some of its key fitness features.
Following the launch of its new Galaxy Note8, Samsung will be having another product announcement ahead of IFA 2017. According to Samsung, this will offer a sneak peek at its latest innovations designed to cater to “your new normal”.
Samsung will be unveiling its Galaxy Note8 next week and it appears that the South Korean smartphone maker will also be introducing a new fitness band at the end of this month. This isn’t an all new model and it looks more like an incremental upgrade to its Gear Fit2.
Smartwatches don’t do enough for me. They’ve always been this thing that costs as much as a smartphone but can’t do as much as a smartphone. I guess the benefit is that it lives on your wrist which makes it really portable, but is that enough to justify dropping thousands on one of these things? No, not to me at least.
But, I understand that there’s a demand for a smartwatch. Partly because it can come in handy, but mostly because people think it’s really cool. Well, if you cool is what you’re after and you don’t want to break your bank, Samsung’s new Gear S3 is definitely a device you should consider.
