No phone? No problem
Samsung’s newest smartwatch, the Gear S, has all the elements you’d expect from a modern wearable – a beautiful curved, 2-inch Super AMOLED display, dual-core processor, IP67 certification as well as a full bevy of fitness monitoring capabilities. It also has one additional feature that you might not think you need – the ability to make and receive calls without the aid of a smartphone.
Yes, the Gear S has a SIM slot, and has 3G connectivity to boot. It can also receive calls forwarded from your smartphone, as well as guide you to where you’re going via Nokia’s HERE maps. The Gear S is Tizen powered, so it’s not going to have exactly the same functions as Android Wear, but that’s okay – variety is the spice of life, right?
