Wearable Tech: Samsung shows off new Gear S smartwatch

1:10 /

Samsung demos its newest smartwatch, the Gear S, at IFA in Berlin, Germany. The device boasts a two-inch Super AMOLED display and built-in 3G SIM card and Wi-Fi support.

[MUSIC] This is all new Samsung Gear S. [APPLAUSE] In only a two inch display, Gear S offers a full Qwerty keyboard. And it's not just any display. It's a two inch curved super AMOLED display. The curve means that it fits your wrist comfortably, and the super AMOLED display means that it's bright and clear. The interface has also been improved, and it's very easy to use. You can read messages and notifications in just a single glance. And I've got Notification. That's right. And notice that the Notifications, they're ordered by time, and sorted into easily checked sections. They are indeed. So let's try swiping left please. Swiping left. And left to widgets. Uh-huh. And then finally swipe up. Up. Up. Or, let's go back to the home screen. And up. Thing is on like that and I've got apps. That's right and once you've checked the home screen to see what's happening you can go straight into the app that you need. [MUSIC]
