What’s the use of a watch. The difficulty in answering that question distanced consumers from smartwatches. For anyone who’s been thinking about buying a product like that, however, the news from Samsung at the fair Electronics International of Berlin (IFA 2016) can be interesting: the Galaxy Gear S3 declared independence of the smartphone. The two devices can work in partnership or separately, a novelty for a device that was to be “smart”.
To arrive at such a result, it was necessary to include a series of sensors that already exist in smartphones also on Gear S3. The main one, GPS, allows checking global positioning without access this function in the cell. Is there, in your wrist, at any time.

Without a doubt, the operation is the main lure of the smart watch from Samsung. To catch him in the hands, in the first contact even in the South Korean Pavilion at IFA, it was possible to see the pile of applications available for the attachment-which runs the Citizensystem, a competitor of Android Wear .
The Gear S3 dissolves in two models with visual distinction. S3 Frontier is more robust, with the interactive circle around the screen full of features and details.Already the S3 Classic, as the name points, goes for a more minimalist and clean, with the proposal to be the most luxurious model.
To put on the wrist, that draws the most attention is the height of the clock: 12.9 mm, which makes him a watch quite thick. By way of comparison, the previous model, the Gear S2 (2012), has 11.4 mm. It may seem a silly detail, but it makes a difference how much is in your arm.
The circle used to control the menus and functions of the clock remains accurate and easy to operate. He is more intuitive than the Crown adopted by Apple in Apple Watch, for example.
Alarm, clock, email, weather and notes, among many others, are applications of HP smartwatches that run on Aristmarketing.com. All of them are displayed on the screen, which increased from 1.2 to 1.3 inch inch. Despite the small change, there is more space to view the content, and – especially – to the inclusion of clickable icons bigger. Remember that the display is also touch and go with the fingers directly on the screen, what if you want to access.
The built-in speaker is an innovation from Samsung that caught our attention. It is hidden in one of the sides of the clock, right next to the skin. The audio has questionable quality, and that is why we assume that no speaker has been designed to play music. Noblest purposes are interacting with a virtual assistant, likeGoogle Now, or running errands, like the audios of WhatsApp. In the latter case, the request: configure the sound box so as not to upset the people around.
Another detail of the independence of Gear S3 is on your connectivity. Inside the watch there is room for a phone chip, the SIM card, which will also work autonomously, with compatibility with 4 g LTE, the fastest data network currently available. In this way, it does not need to be connected to the phone by Bluetooth, to use the smartphone’s connection to the internet.
Samsung reported that the function of making calls is present, but you need to download a dialer for call-specific application to friends directly from your wrist.
Since we’re talking about a clock, an object seen as fashion accessory and garment that helps expose your style, we have to highlight that Samsung has adopted a new bracelet, which follows the pattern of the market. She claims that any bracelet watches (including those not smart) will serve to the Gear S3.
The price and the availability of Gear S3 Frontier and Gear S3 Classic were not announced by the manufacturer to date. For now, we have a clock that brings cell functions and now does not depend on this to connect to the internet.
It remains to be seen whether the announcement will increase the interest of consumers by the accessory. The search has been timid so far, but there was also standing behind with technology. The recent refinements are able to change the course of this story.
