The Galaxy series has indeed stepped up their game in making communication easier, lighter, and most of all hands-free. Samsung has finally introduced a device that could serve as an alternative to your smartphone, and it comes in a very light and portable form – a watch. Introducing, the Galaxy Gear S, the first ever network connected watch, which could do all the productivity and communication essentials. All these features without having to connect it with your phone. The future is literally in your hands with the Galaxy Gear S.
With the Galaxy Gear S, you can now make or answer phone calls, check and send text messages, open and respond to email, and check your calendar and other updates even if your phone isn’t nearby. This means that you won’t miss any calls even if you’re out to just buy a coffee or away from your desk for some reason. You can easily stay connected while you’re on the go! The Galaxy Gear S is the future of on-the-go connectivity.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear S is a watch that sports a 2-inch curved screen which is Super AMOLED multi-finger touch screen display. Its resolution is 360 x 480 pixel with a pixel density of 300 pixels per inch. The display of the Galaxy Gear S is without a doubt pixel rich and highly responsive as if it’s a smartphone squeezed into a size and shape of a watch. Underneath that brilliant display is a 1.2GHz Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon Chipset with a decent amount of RAM (512MB) and 4GB ROM for file storage. For a very small device such as a watch, you can’t help but wonder how such amount of power could fit into such device.
Just when you thought this watch couldn’t get any better, you’ll definitely be surprised with how innovative its overall build is. First up, its IP 67 certification: this means that this watch is dust and water resistant. You can enjoy the outdoors or the beach without having to worry that the device might face its device. The IP 67 certification indicates that this can be submerged in water 1-meter-deep for 30 minutes. On the other hand, other hardware features that are invisible to the naked eye are the following: Accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, heart rate sensor, barometer, UV light sensor, and proximity sensor. Indeed, the Galaxy Gear S is more than just a futuristic watch.
