Other specs include a dual-core 1GHz processor, Tizen wearable OS 2.3.2, 4GB of internal storage, and 768MB of RAM. The Gear S3 also features IP68 water and dust resistance.

Currently, Samsung advertises the watch having 4-day battery life, all coming from a 380mAh built-in battery. On the connectivity side, the Frontier features LTE for taking calls, while the Classic does not. However, both feature NFC and MST for Samsung Pay compatibility.

Starting at $350, the Gear S3 will be available at Best Buy, Amazon, Macy’s and Samsung’s website, plus a few carrier stores.
