Samsung's press invitation to its IFA event hints at Gear S3, Gear S3 Classic unveiling
This year, we expect to see a Samsung Gear S3 and a Samsung Gear S3 Classic. Just last week we told you that the manufacturer had filed to trademark the Samsung Gear S3 Classic name in Korea. In addition to the two models to be introduced next month, there is speculation that a luxury version of the Gear S3 will be announced next March at the World Watch and Jewelry Show.
Some of the new sensors expected on the Gear S3 include an altimeter, a barometer, integrated GPS and a speedometer. With the GPS feature, the watch won't need to be paired to a smartphone to show you exactly where you are, and track your every movement. The speedometer will monitor exercise related speeds, and you will be able to check your altitude with the altimeter. The screen will display a current reading and will also provide you with a graph. And the barometer will alert you if the barometric pressure is dropping fast enough to indicate that a storm is brewing.
