Samsung Electronics South Africa has announced the official launch of the Gear S3 smartwatch. The timepiece which combines timeless aesthetics with the latest in mobile technology is available in two designs, the frontier and the Gear S3 classic.
Both the Gear S3 frontier and Gear S3 classic take inspiration from traditional watchmakers, offering refinements in design, including Samsung’s trademark sleek circular bezel and carefully-crafted details on the face of the watch. Consumers can customise the watch and switch the changeable 22mm wristband to fit their personal style. It also supports Always On analog display, so the face always shows the time, instead of automatically fading to black.
“A significant addition to Samsung’s smartwatch portfolio, inspiration for the Gear S3 was drawn from classic watch manufacturers, in order to offer consumers a premium timepiece,” said Craige Fleischer, Director of Integrated Mobility at Samsung Electronics South Africa.
The Gear S3 is water and dust resistant. Equipped with a built-in GPS, as well as the S Health, Alti/barometer and Speedometer apps, users can track daily fitness activities, outdoor conditions that range from altitude and atmospheric pressure to sudden changes in weather, as well as speed and distance travelled. In addition, the long-lasting battery is effective for up to four days on a single charge.
It is currently available in South Africa, mainly through Samsung stores and Dion Wired with a recommended price of R 6499.00.
