This new Android Wear smartwatch with interchangeable bands, as well as IP86-rated protection from water and dust hits Korea next to the Blue Coral version of the Galaxy S7 Edge flagship.

As it usually happens with Samsung products, the Samsung Gear S3 hits South Korea on its way to the US. Today, the company's new smartwatch launches in its home market. Next week, the US is scheduled to receive it, next to Australia, Singapore, Dubai, France, Germany, and the UK.

South Korea also gets the Gear S3 in two variants, namely Classic and Frontier. Their specs are similar, only that the Gear S3 Frontier comes with a rugged design and support for 4G LTE connectivity. In addition to the mobile payment capabilities offered by the previous generation (via NFC), the new Gear smartwatches come with support for MST payments. At last, the swappable bands and IP68 rating should be mentioned as well, next to the battery that can provide up to four days of autonomy.

The US launch of the Samsung Gear S3 is scheduled for November 18. Today, the South Korean market also got the Blue Coral Galaxy S7 Edge flagship.

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.
