It was just earlier this week that we had to pick our jaws up off the floor after coming across Garmin’s decidedly luxurious smart watch. Now, thanks to Samsung Gear’s S3, we’re doing it all over again.
Designed to look like something your grandfather would’ve worn with pride, but packed so full of tech that it would make the crew of Star Trek look twice, it’s an incredibly capable and versatile watch. Coming in two different styles, ‘Frontier’ for the outdoorsman and ‘Classic’ for the city dweller, Samsung’s Gear S3 has the ability to operate for four days without a charge, all while giving you GPS readouts, tracking your fitness, and taking your calls and operating apps. The types of apps it can run are pretty impressive. Not only can you listen to music, pay for your groceries, and check Yelp for the best bars, but it can also call Uber after you’ve had too many to drive yourself home. Both of the watches feature a stainless steel 46mm case, a waterproof rating of IP68, and have WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities. [Purchase]
