Samsung unveils new official bands for the Gear S3
The Samsung Gear S3 is among the best smartwatches out there, no doubt. And its compatibility with standard 22 mm watch bands is among its best features when you want a watch for every occasion. With a bit of digging around, you can find the best Gear S3 straps for any situation.
Samsung seems to understand that, as the Korean tech giant just released a statement, announcing new official Gear S3 bands. The company said it's collaborating with two major players of the accessories market to deliver straps, specifically designed for its latest smartwatch.
In addition to Samsung's own straps, users can now choose to go for a band by Strap Studio. The collection offers premium Italian leather bands in 15 different colors. The bands by Strap Studio also feature a new spring bar system, labeled as “easy change”, which will allow users to switch out straps without the need of any tools at all.
The other company with new official Gear S3 straps is SLG Design, known for its cases for Apple products and bands for the Apple Watch and Gear S2 smartwatches. It now offers a collection of nine premium straps – six made out of leather and three made out of canvas – boasting a price tag that's just as premium.
For the time being, the new bands can be purchased from the websites of the two companies, but will be made available in Samsung's online shop in Korea and its offline stores in select countries, including Hong Kong, Singapore and Mexico later this month.
