Koreans officially confirmed the intention to release smart watches Samsung Gear Sport (SM-R600) this fall. As it turned out, the novelty is a special secure version of last year’s Gear S3, aimed at athletes and fans of extreme leisure.
The presentation of Samsung Gear Sport will take place during the international exhibition IFA 2017 in Berlin, which will be held there from September 1 to 6. Simultaneously with the smart clock, another wearable gadget will be presented – a smart fitness bracelet Gear Fit2 Pro (early some publications believed that Gear Sport and Fit2 Pro are the same).
If you believe the insiders, the new smart watch Samsung will be the first device based on the proprietary OS Tizen 3.0 and, in fact, will be called to demonstrate its capabilities. Other characteristics include the presence of a round screen with a resolution of 360 × 360, support for Wi-Fi b / g / n and Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth v4.2 and charging 5 V with a current of 0.7 A.
Current images, to put it mildly, do not shine with quality. Because of this, it cannot be said whether the straps of the watch will be removable, or not. Interestingly, the photo in the beginning mentioned the protection from water class 5ATM – like the Apple Watch Series 2. That is possible to engage in water sports, but do not dive.
The main rival of Samsung Gear Sport should be, respectively, Apple Watch third generation, also expected this fall. In general, we are waiting for another exciting competition in the gadget market.
