Samsung Gear S Could Be a Wearables Contender Listen to this article

Are you still trying to figure out which smartwatch is going to get your money this fall? Samsung is hoping that you’ll consider their new Samsung Gear S, with its 2″ curved Super AMOLED display. Sure it has Bluetooth and WiFi, but it also offers a trick that none of the others have yet — its own 3G source.

If you are wearing this watch, you can leave your phone in your pocket or bag — back in the car (!!) — and still keep up to date on important texts, notifications, etc. That’s pretty freaking cool, right?

The Samsung Gear S allows consumers to control how they want to connect, switching easily between 3G and Bluetooth connections, and automatically synchronizing information when paired to a smartphone.
