Samsung has launched Gear S smartwatch in India. The device is available exclusively through Amazon India for Rs. 27,900 ($453) in black or white.
The Gear S is Samsung’s latest smartwatch running on the Tizen platform. Unlike most other smartwatches out there, the Gear S includes its own SIM card, which allows it to function without a smartphone and still receive calls and messages all the time. It also includes other smartwatch features, such as health tracking, navigation and it can also play music via Bluetooth headphones.
The Gear S is significantly more expensive than most smartwatches available in India (the Moto 360 costs Rs. 17,990, for example) and although it does a lot more too it also only works with a select few Samsung devices.
