As more and more products become “smarter”, retaining a sense of the status quo, or an anchor to tow you in from the rapid waves of change is increasingly becoming a focal point of discussion. Our contribution to this discussion is the Gear S3. We have perfected a wearable device that exceeds the limitations of analogue with innovative digital technology, yet pays the deepest homage to the craftsmen who breathed life into timepieces of old. The watch you are familiar with fused with the smart technology; we introduce the Samsung Gear S3, the smart watch.
