Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch

Not much is known about the smartwatch, but rumors suggest that it will come with an integrated GPS, altimeter, barometer, and speedometer. The latest version of Samsung’s Tizen-based smartwatch will succeed the Gear S2.

Reportedly in development under the codename 'Solis', the Gear S3 is also set to retain its predecessor's round form, although it won't be exactly the same. It's been suggested that the Gear S3 might take a small step up on its predecessor's 1.2-inch sAMOLED panel in order to make the touch controls a little easier to poke and prod. An exact size for the new panel, however, is currently unclear.

There won't just be one design though. Leaks have suggested that a trio of Gear S3 options will be available with active and rugged 'Frontier' and 'Explorer' models set to drop alongside the traditional classic model. While it's unclear what forms these will take, expect all to build around the same circular, rotating bezel base.

The Gear S3 leaks pictures have shown off a compact metal design accented with a metal bracelet and a fluted bezel.
