THE FU­TURE OF TECH

GEAR S3 SAM­SUNG

The new­est smart­watch on the block shows just how far wear­able tech­nol­ogy has come in three years. Sam­sung’s Gear S3 watches are avail­able in two mod­els — Clas­sic or the sportier Fron­tier — fea­ture stain­less steel bod­ies and di­als, much larger 1.3-inch touch­screens, and more RAM un­der the hood for speed­ier op­er­a­tion. They’re also wa­ter­re­sis­tant to 1.5m, prom­ise a bat­tery life of up to four days, a built-in GPS chip, and Sam­sung Pay com­pat­i­bil­ity. At up to 20g heav­ier and no­tice­ably wider, they might be too much for dainty wrists, but the Gear S3 ad­dresses a lot of wear­able tech bug­bears.
