The Samsung Gear S has been available for pre-order for well over a month thanks to release delays supposedly caused by Samsung struggling to meet demand. Now the wait is over because the gadgets is going on sale in the UK on November 7th, which is tomorrow.
For those of you who don’t know, the Gear S is a 3G-enabled smartwatch that has its own SIM card built in. This means it can be paired with a Galaxy smartphone to receive calls and texts even when the two devices are nowhere near each other. The device also has a 2-inch Super AMOLED screen, GPS, and runs on Samsung’s in-house Tizen operating system.
On the subject of the Gear S, Samsung marketing chief Innes van Gennip said:
“This is an exciting and dynamic time for the wearable technology category and we are delighted to be leading the innovation drive, delivering products that truly redefine the mobile experience for customers by offering greater flexibility and freedom on the move.”
The Gear S costs £329, and is reportedly available from O2 , Samsung Experience stores, and the Samsung website.
