Samsung Gear S smartwatch has a huge curved screen and its own cellular service
Hey, I'm Scott Stein, and I have on my wrist what, a Samsung smart watch.
This is the Samsung Gear S. Now, if you're keeping score, this is yet another smart watch.
It's actually the sixth in their line.
But everyone is a little different.
And this has a curved two inch AMOLED display, 360 by 480, the biggest.
And widest smart watch that we've seen from Samsung, and it's running Tizen so this actually goes back to running with the Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo ran, which is Samsung's own app collection.
There are gonna be 1,000 apps available by the time the Gear.
And one more special, and probably the biggest thing, this has it's own SIM card.
And it has WiFi so that, sure, you're paring this to your phone, and that still means Samsung phone's running Android 4.3 just like the other gears.
But it will allow you to get notifications and connect online for messages, whether you're connected to WiFi or, again, with it's own data plan.
Now, details on that aren't yet available.
Now it has a removable strap here.
It's, this one's a rubbery you know, comfortable, but definitely wide, hyper-stylized type of a feel.
and it has a heart-rate monitor.
IP67 for water resistance.
Just like the Gear 2, and the Gear 2 Neo.
And the watches can actually go into a low power mode, much like you saw in the Android wear gear live.
And there's more.
There's a battery charger here that actually has its own battery pack.
So now when you plug this in to charge, you can fully charge this too and give it an extra boost.
So you can pop that in on the go to give it a little more juice.
Expected maybe about two days of battery life, but that really remains to be seen.
But you can see here that is a bright vivid screen.
With a lot of functions a lot of apps.
And S voice but similar types of functions that you would find on the Gear 2 Neo.
This also has Nike plus support.
So you can use this as a Nike Plus fitness device.
That app is included here.
And boom you can use it to run and connect to Nike Plus on the go.
This is definitely the premium end of Samsung's smart watch spectrum the Samsung Gear S.
I'm Scott Stein at CNET, with the Samsung Gear S, here in New York.
