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.
Codrut Nistor - Senior Tech Writer - 5999 articles published on Notebookcheck since 2013
In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
