Everybody knows that Samsung is looking to clear their name up after all the scandal their Galaxy Note 7 spurred with their exploding batteries. Because of the major hardware problems the Note 7 presented, Samsung has to make their next device be flawless to prove to the world that they are still a company that produces only top quality products.
Samsung recently released their Gear S3 on November 19th and one selling point of the smart watches was that they will be compatible with all Android devices, not only Samsung devices. This is true but there’s a catch, the smartphone must be running on Android 4.4 KitKat or better to be able to use the new Samsung Pay feature.
The extra connectivity option between the watch and other Android powered devices was installed for the sole reason of increasing their customer base. The Gear S3 is available in the Frontier and Classic model, and both are running on Samsung’s operating system Tizen.
The smartwatches are equipped with high-end technology and their specs are really impressive for a watch. The gadgets use a 380 mAh Li-Ion battery and have 768MB of RAM. The storage department is the most impressive of them all because it is equipped with 4GB of internal storage space. The difference between the Frontier and Classic model is that the Frontier one has LTE connectivity. The reason why Samsung equipped the Frontier model with LTE connectivity is because the watch is designed for people that like outdoors activities and in case you are stuck in a bad situation, the LTE connection might come quite handy. The Gear S3 also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a GPS that can be used to mark and track movement which should be very useful for people that like doing physical exercises like running, or to just help the user find his way back home.
