Netherlands-exclusive Gear S3 BALR. edition coming this Friday

Samsung Gear S3 BALR. special edition smartwatch launching in Netherlands December 2016

More than a year after the Gear S2 BALR. special edition smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S3 gets the BALR. treatment as well. The new BALR.-customized Gear smartwatch has a price tag of €499 EUR.

Although BALR. is a very young company, having been founded by three professional football players back in 2013, it looks like the partnership between the luxury brand and the tech giant is working great. Even before last year's Gear S2 BALR. edition, the two brands released signature cases for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ flagships.

The Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier retail for €399 EUR in The Netherlands, and their BALR. editions will retail for €499 EUR (roughly $530 USD). However, this price also covers the leather watch band and Braided Bracelet, which are worth €125 EUR (about $133 USD). In addition to them, these special edition Gear S3 units will also come with two exclusive watch faces.

Since BALR. products are currently being used by famous Dutch DJs like Nicky Romero or Hardwell, maybe the Gear S3 BALR. will not remain a product exclusively available in The Netherlands. Unfortunately, we have no information about the international availability of this product for now, but we will keep you posted.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
