In its release date, Apple Watch Series 2 seemed to bring a big KO for existing wearable in the market. But, apparently this thing is not really true because this Apple Watch series is only available for iOS, particularly for the iPhone. But the thing is, the number of Android users, especially for Samsung’s Android products, is really high too if we compare it to the number of iOS users. That’s why we need to find another smartwatch product that is sufficient enough as a companion for advance Samsung Android devices. And in this case, we strongly purpose: Samsung Galaxy Gear S3. How smart and sufficient this watch is? Let’s find out in the Samsung Galaxy Gear S3 Specs information below.
Shortly speaking, Samsung is not the new player in the Smartwatch game.
