Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch launched in India at Rs 28500

Samsung's Gear S3 is unbeatable. The Tizen-powered smartwatch made its debut in the worldwide market in 2016 where it has been priced at $349 (approximately Rs 23,800) onwards.

Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch will launch in India today.

Coming to the devices, the Frontier model of Gear S3 comes with a rugged outdoor look, while the Classic variant of the smartwatch has a more refined appearance. Gear S3 is compatible with any 22mm watch band so that the users can quickly change their watch bands to match their outfit.

The Gear S3's signature rotating bezel has been enhanced with new features. The classic version of Gear S3 is five grams lighter as well. The watches also come with the S Health app, Speedometer and Altimeter/barometer apps that help track day-to-day fitness activities.

Brazil's jailbreaks expose the country's overburdened prison system
On Wednesday, January 4, the governor of Amazonas, José Melo (Pros), said that "there were no saints" among the prisoners killed. Brazil´s prisons need 50 percent more capacity to handle the current number of inmates, the justice ministry report found.

Both the premium wearables from the consumer electronics manufacturer sport a 1.3-inch super AMOLED full circular display running at a resolution of 360×360pixels (278 dpi), which is fractionally larger than the Gear S2's 1.2inch display.

The main difference between Classic and Frontier model of Gear S3 is their connectivity options. Samsung claims the Gear S3 has a battery life of up to 4 days and it can be charged using wireless charging.

The company has added Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ protection, and it is military-grade durable, which means the Gear S3 Frontier could be able to withstand accidental damage, and would also be able to survive high and low temperatures. The smartwatch will be available from January 18 across Samsung retail channels, and has been priced by the company at Rs. 28,500. On the inside, the smartwatch is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor clubbed with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory.

The Gear S3 can be used to take and make calls, check voice messages and hear alarms with built-in speakers in it. However since Samsung Pay is not available in India yet, this won't be of much concern to users here. According to Samsung, the Gear app store has over 10,000 apps like Uber, Spotify, Goal+, Yelp, Here, Glympse etc.
