Samsung started taking pre-orders for the Gear S3 in Russia about a month ago but it has now conducted an official launch event for the new smartwatch in Moscow. Customers in Russia can now purchase the Gear S3 directly from Samsung via its online store and get free delivery or they can collect it in-store. Samsung is offering the Gear S3 frontier and Gear S3 classic in Russia for 24,990 rubles ($410).
The only major difference between the Gear S3 classic and the Gear S3 frontier is that the latter is aimed customers who want a rugged sports watch. Both models are quite similar in build quality and features. They offer IP68 water and dust resistance, optical heart rate monitor, accelerometer, barometer, GPS, built-in gyro and more. The Gear S3 frontier does feature 4G LTE support.
