One of the reasons people are not using smartwatches is due to lack of functionality. Even with new features, smartwatches are still reliant on mobile devices.
Samsung aims to change the way people use smartwatches by being the first company to release a device that actually allows people to make calls from their wrist.
The specs of the device are as follows:
- 2.0-inch 360 x 480 Super AMOLED display
- Dual core 1.0 GHz processor
- 4GB storage
- 300mAh battery
- WiFi, 3G connectivity
For those who are wondering, this smartwatch will be running on Tizen. The release of Samsung Gear S is set for October, just in time for those who are hoping to get their hands on the gadget before the holiday season.
