Samsung Gear S3 Arrives in Malaysia: Timeless Outside, Revolutionary Inside
Kuala Lumpur, 1 Dec 2016 – Samsung Malaysia Electronics is set to reveal its much-anticipated latest generation of smartwatches, the Gear S3 here in Malaysia which will go on sale beginning December 8 at Samsung SES Stores and authorised dealers nationwide. The cutting-edge timepiece combines timeless design with the latest in mobile technology, and will be available in two designs – the rugged Gear S3 frontier and the modern, sleek Gear S3 classic.
Inspired by the active explorer, the Gear S3 frontier exudes a rugged outdoor look with durable materials that fuse form and function. The Gear S3 classic, meanwhile, pays homage to the minimalist, elegant styles embodied by traditional timepieces.
“A significant addition to our smartwatch portfolio, we drew inspiration from classic watch manufacturers to offer consumers a premium timepiece. The immensely intelligent Samsung Gear S3 is a testament to our focus on evolving and leading the wearables category and ultimately delivering a smartwatch unlike any other on the market,” said Lee Jui Siang, Vice President, IT & Mobile Business Unit, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
Combining timeless design with the latest in mobile technology, Samsung’s Gear S3 is a smartwatch that is built to enhance various lifestyles. Whether you are an adventurer, an on-the-go professional, Super-dad or a gearhead, the Gear S3 adds both convenience and fun to everyday life.
Timeless Design and Enhanced Standalone Convenience
Both the Gear S3 frontier and Gear S3 classic take inspiration from traditional watchmakers, offering refinements in design, including Samsung’s trademark sleek circular bezel and carefully-crafted details on the watch face. Consumers can customize the watch face and switch the changeable 22mm watch band to fit their personal style. It also supports Always On Watch so the watch face always shows the time instead of automatically fading to black.
Delivering the latest in mobile technology, the Gear S3 is IP68 water and dust resistant, and offers military grade durability. Equipped with a built-in GPS, as well as the S Health, Alti/barometer and Speedometer apps, users can track daily fitness activities and outdoor conditions from altitude and atmospheric pressure to sudden changes in weather, distance traveled and speed. Additionally, the long-lasting battery can last up to four days on a single charge.
To celebrate the official launch of the Gear S3 in Malaysia, Samsung is offering two (2) additional watch straps in different colours* and a limited edition watch collector box* with every purchase of the Gear S3 Frontier or Classic. This exclusive deal is also valid for purchases from Samsung online store on Lazada and 11street.
