Even if smartwatches lost some of their hype this year, at IFA 2016 in Berlin Samsung unveiled a new product from this category called the Gear S3.
While device manufacturers aren’t flocking to release smartwatches like they used to, Samsung continues to believe in its wearable line. Actually, the Gear S3 is quite a fantastic smartwatch. And good news, the product is now available for pre-order at Best Buy in Canada.
The watch can be yours either in classic version and sporty Frontier model for CAD$469.99 and ships out to interested parties free of charge.
If you decide to order now, then you should know Best Buy is offering a 10% discount. All you need to do is enter the promo code at check-out and you’re good to go.
Unlike many smartwatches around today, the Gear S3 runs Samsung’s home-grown Tizen OS and takes advantage of a 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display and an iconic rotating bezel which makes app navigation and messaging a breeze.
The watch is also water-resistant, has a built-in GPS and the capacity to make contactless payments via Samsung Pay and a heart-rate monitor. Compared to the last year’s Gear S2, the Gear S3 brings 50% more RAM and 50% larger battery.
Anyway, the Gear S3 is scheduled to start shipping out to customers who have placed a pre-order starting November 18.
