Samsung unveils the latest addition to its smart watch range with the Samsung Gear S, which promises to bring more benefits of the smartphone experience to the wrist. The new model features a built-in 3G modem, allowing texts to be sent and calls to be made without relying on a mobile phone, WiFi or Bluetooth for connectivity. The curved two-inch AMOLED screen reflects the aesthetics of Samsung’s smartphones and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz CPU which runs a variant of the Tizen operating system. Claimed to have a battery life of up to two days, the Gear S also offers GPS capabilities, heart rate and motion sensors, as well as the all important clock. Look out for the Samsung Gear S at retailers this October.
