Samsung Gear S sells 10,000 units in South Korea on first day of launch

Being a smartwatch that doesn’t need a companion smartphone to be able to make calls or let you navigate to your destination, the Samsung Gear S is no doubt the most capable smartwatch out there. Over in South Korea, Samsung’s home country, it looks like consumers have taken a liking to the feature-packed Gear S, as apparently 10,000 units of the smartwatch were sold right on launch day. The Gear S went up for sale in South Korea on November 5 from local carriers SK Telecom and KT, and it’s likely Samsung has been able to sell more than 20,000 units in the last week.

The Gear S features a curved 2-inch Super AMOLED display, a dual-core Exynos processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a 300mAh battery. Running on Tizen, the Gear S comes with inbuilt Wi-Fi and GPS chips, a SIM card slot that supports 3G networks, heart rate and UV sensors, and a barometer and compass. It can be paired with a Samsung smartphone running on Android 4.3 or above, as long as it supports Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, though as mentioned above, pairing the watch with a phone is optional (though you will need to pair the first time you turn on the Gear S.)

I would rather say “futuristic”.
Can’t wait to buy blue or red strap.

Bateria 300 mAh to kpina. Uzywajac zegarka z wlaczonymi wszystkimi funkcjami bateria nie starcza nawet na jeden dzien. Poza tym rewelacja. Z oprogramowania brakuje mi odtwarzacza wideo w galerii. Bardzo malo programow wykorzystuje mozliwosci zegarka (dostep do internetu, GPS) i w wiekszosci trzeba byc polaczonym z telefonem. Np. Yanosik nie bierze pod uwage, ze zegarek ma GPS, a byloby fajnie miec taki bajer. Google translate: Battery 300 mAh This mockery. Using a watch with all the advanced functions of the battery is not enough even for one day. In addition to this revelation. With the software I miss the video… Read more »

I would also get it if it was available in my country. Most innovative smartwatch so far.
