Whichever model you choose, you’ll be presented with Samsung’s own Tizen OS, meaning you won’t have access to the Google Play Store. Worry not, though – Samsung says the Tizen Store now has over 10,000 applications available for download, so you’re bound to find some useful apps that will suit your needs. The company is also making a variety of watch straps available too, or you can use any other standard 22mm watch strap out there.
So, are you planning on buying a Gear S3? Or is the price a little too high? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
