Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch

Samsung’s Gear S3 Smartwatch looks more like a classic timepiece than any smartwatch before it. Available in two flavors — the Gear S3 Classic (left) and rugged-looking Gear S3 Frontier (right) — they both boast a bezel that’s not just for show, rotating intuitively to scroll through apps or text, answer calls, jack up the volume, and more. A large 1.3-inch Always on Super AMOLED display behind Gorilla Glass SR+ puts on the face of a real mechanical watch and still manages up to four days of battery life before you’ll need to drop it on its wireless fast charging dock for a top up. It’s also decked out with a GPS, barometer, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of on-board memory, a speaker/mic for taking calls and optional LTE (in the Frontier model), granting the watch complete independence from the phone to which it’d normally be shackled. And they’re both rated IP68 water and dust resistant, so while it’s not suitable for swimming a sustained dunk or heavy downpour won’t do any damage.
