Samsung Electronics has unveiled its latest smart wearable device called Gear S, which is made with an elegant, flexible band as well as a curved Super Amoled display.
According to JK Shin, the CEO and head of IT & mobile communication at Samsung Electronics, the company is leading this exciting and fast developing wearable category via progressive innovation. The Gear S redefines the smart wearable idea as well as the culture of mobile communication allowing consumers to live a truly connected life anytime, anywhere.
The Samsung Gear S has a two-inch curved Super Amoled display, which provides users a richer view with an easy-to-use and beautiful user interface. It enables users to read notifications and messages at a single look with features such as condensed font and conversation view.
Additionally, the curved design of the device fits comfortable throughout the wrist’s contours. Its changeable straps and customizable screen options gives users the power to express their own style and taste. It also extends its communication capabilities to include WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity as well as 3G, permitting users to remain informed with seamless notifications from applications, calendars and social networks even when far from the phone.
The Samsung Gear S allows users to reply to incoming messages instantly using the onscreen keyboard or make use of enhanced S voice functionality to make sure tasks are finished right away. In addition, people can receive and make calls directly from their wrists or receive calls forwarded from their smartphones.
Some of its features consist of a 24-hour news and views service from The Financial Times ‘fastFT’, turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation provided by HERE, an advanced-reading technology from Spritz and the ability to see and respond to essential social notifications immediately with Facebook.
Samsung Gear S also possesses more enhanced multi-sensors, robust S Health features and an inbuilt GPS. Additionally, it has applications such as Nike+ Running that allows users to keep track of their runs and remain motivated as they move without their smartphone.
Starting October, the Samsung Gear S will be accessible in global markets through e-commerce websites, retail channels and carriers.
