It has been some time since the last major Tizen software update for Samsung Gear smartwatches such as the Gear S3. But this week, Samsung introduced Tizen 3.0 for more devices, rolling out now for Gear S3 smartwatches bringing an all-new ‘Value Pack.’
It’s always an exciting event when new mobile hardware is released. However, there’s always the slight feeling of dread that owners of the previous generation of hardware feel when they know their beloved device is officially outdated. Samsung has a history of helping these customers out by porting some features from newer hardware to older devices and the Gear S2 smartwatch is the latest example.
Samsung has continued to expand and improve on Samsung Pay. With the addition of online and in-app payments as well as a rewards program, the service is on the rise. Samsung Pay was even announced to have standalone support on the Gear S3 when paired with any smartphone running Android 4.4 or higher. It seems this isn’t exactly true.
Smartwatches have been around for a few years. However, smartwatches with their own data connection have only recently started popping up. Samsung was one of the first device makers to introduce such a device with the Gear S2. The Gear S2 also supported Samsung Pay but only when connected to a Galaxy smartphone. Samsung’s recently launched Gear S3 remedies that issue.
Following the crazy aftermath of the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is finally putting the right step forward in releasing its Gear S3 smartwatch. The device was first announced back in late August during IFA 16. Pre-orders are now confirmed to go live November 6th across a variety of retailers and carriers. The official release is slated for November the 18th. Here’s where you’ll be able to get one.
