Presented smart watches Samsung Gear S3
Launched at IFA 2016, the company Samsung introduced a smart watch Gear S3. Recall that the previous model was announced at the same time and in the same place and no other hours Samsung over the past year has not released. This suggests that the producers quickly realized that the smartwatch market, though growing, remains relatively modest.
Let’s start with an interesting nuance. Gear S3 are, in fact, will not replace Gear S2. Last year the watch will receive the OS update and will continue to be sold along with the product. The fact that the new watch is significantly larger. And Classic models, and Frontier, namely the so-called version Gear S3, got a case diameter of 46 mm, whereas in S2, depending on the version, this parameter was equal to 40 or 42 mm.
From the point of view of the characteristics of both versions of the new items are identical. In a new Super AMOLED screen diagonal of 1.3 inches with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels, a single-chip system Exynos with a pair of processor cores, 768 MB RAM, 4 GB flash memory, GPS module and battery capacity 380 mAh, which should provide 4-5 days of battery life. There is a power saving technology.
Special attention deserves the screen. First, it is covered by the new protective glass Gorilla Glass SR+, and second, the new watch has got the function of Always On Display in full color.
Of course, Samsung has kept the main highlight of the previous model — the rotating bezel used as a control. Also, both versions are protected from water (IP68), have heart rate sensors and support service Samsung Pay, and complete, including technology MST. Works novelty under control of Tizen OS.
The Classic version differs from the Frontier in the first design, he’s more calm, and the lack of modification-enabled SIM cards. Frontier can also buy as a cellular modem, and without it.
It is known that the modification of the Classic will be available in October at a price of $300.
