Samsung Gear Sport gets an "official launch" film, but no release date

In late August, Samsung announced the Gear Sport, a new Tizen-based smartwatch aimed at very active users. While the company didn't say exactly when the Gear Sport would be released, the smartwatch is likely going to hit shelves in the near future. That's because Samsung today published a Gear Sport "official launch film."  


As you can see above, the launch film's main idea is that the Samsung Gear Sport is a smartwatch that enables you to "go beyond fitness." It can do that thanks to stuff like water resistance (up to 50 meters), weight management features, built-in GPS for accurate tracking, and even a standalone music player.  


The Gear Sport does not have cellular connectivity, so you can't use it to make calls. However, you can pair it with Android and iOS phones (via Bluetooth) to receive notifications, sync fitness apps, and even respond to text messages. The new wearable can also be used to make purchases via Samsung Pay, thanks to built-in NFC.


The official price of the Samsung Gear Sport should be around $350. If you're not yet sure this is a smartwatch for you, feel free to check out our Gear Sport hands-on.
