It seems that the Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch isn’t just set for a mid-November release in Canada, with The Korea Times reporting that Samsung is also shipping the device in the US and ‘major European nations’ then too.
A more precise date wasn’t disclosed, however the Canadian Best Buy page indicates an expected shipping date of November 18. Both the Classic and Frontier variants of the S3 are available for pre-order there at a price of CAD $469.99 with free shipping, which is equivalent to about US $360. The Korea Times source didn’t reveal a fixed price for Korea nor for the US market.
Samsung Gear S3 hands on
The Gear S3 is Samsung’s latest Tizen-based smartwatch, which we found to have made a number of improvements over the Gear S2, including support for contactless payments via Samsung Pay, in our hands-on time with it (which you can read about at the link above).
Is the Samsung Gear S3 the must-have smartwatch of 2016? Is there such a thing as a must-have smartwatch? Give us your thoughts in the comments.
