Smartwatch and fitness bands are starting to get popularity in Nepal these days. Globally, luxury watch have been in demand since the dawn of fashion and luxury industry. The demand of new features and functions are always on the rise. Samsung Nepal launched its high end smartwatch Gear S3 in Nepal to meet the market demand.Smartwatch industry is doing very hard to meet the need of luxury watch with looks, features and durability. Company briefed us a month ago on the arrival of this watch. We used it for few times so this is our impressions as well. The classic is not coming to Nepal because the company thinks it is not fit for here.
Frontier holds a balance of both design and feature at a good level but classic is much on classy side. Samsung Nepal is also bringing Gear Fit soon in Nepal. It is to meet the demand of fitness gear these days. The price of Samsung Galaxy Gear S3 in Nepal is Rs 41,900.
By no means it is a cheap watch but there a lots of features and possibilities. Lets start with the specs of this gadget.
- Stainless Steel 316L Body
- IP68 Water and dust proof rating
- Gorilla Glass SR+
- SAMOLED 1.3” Round screen (360×360 resolution)
- Exynos 720 Soc with 1 GHz dual core processor
- 768 MB RAM
- 4 GB internal storage
- OS: Tizen 2.3.2
- 380 mAh battery
In our first glance, we really kept admiring the display. It seemed like a real watch with real needles but when we rotated the bezel, it started showing its power. Gear S3 runs on Tizen OS for wearable platform instead of Android Wear. It runs fantastic and has lots of features to be admired.
User interaction is fun and seamless with rotating bezel and touch. It can last up to 3 days with single charge. It supports wireless charging, heartbeat sensor, gyrosensor and barometer. According to the company, this “Timeless Design” is possible due to collaboration with industry leading watchmakers.
Actually there are lots of applications if we intend to push it further. In Kathmandu, we travel in public vehicles so picking up calls is hard in crowd. Using the Gear S3, picking up calls and reviving SMS, notifications made everything simple. The health related apps made us more aware about our heart rate, calories and steps so our interest also increased in health.
Flipboard is Samsung’s oldest friend and we can still find briefing in this gadget also. Somehow we were also reading news from it. Seriously we will be testing this device for more in-depth review. So keep in touch with us and if you have any though share with us.
