This month the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will be presented. In fact, it will be officially presented tomorrow. However, next month the company’s new smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S3, will be presented. As it seemed, it was not going to have a lot of new features, but finally it seems that it will have advanced sports functions.
Advanced Sports Watches
The Samsung Gear S3 will be a smartwatch that will include advanced sports functions. That will be the big news between this new smartwatch and the Samsung Gear S2. It will have three special features that we had not seen in previous watches. There will be an altimeter, a barometer and also the GPS, thanks to which the watch will know the speed at which we are moving, and this will be key to having more data on our physical activity.
That is, its objective will be to rival the sports watches of brands specialized in sports. We will see if it is enough both to be a truly smart watch, and to be a sports watch.
Competing with the Apple Watch 2
Of course, one of the objectives of this Samsung Gear S3 will be to rival the Apple Watch 2. The new Apple watch was already trying to become that perfect sports watch. It did not get it in the first version, but the second version could come with news.
It is a complex market in which we find watches very oriented to the world of sports, and on the other hand watches very oriented to the technological world. It is clear that a convergence between both worlds is the ideal, but that is quite complex, and that is precisely the job of Apple and Samsung, to get smart watches that are sporty, and at the same time are useful. Will they get it with the Samsung Gear S3?
