    Samsung has launched a number of new watchfaces, all of which debuted on the fitness-orientated Gear Sport back in September, for the Gear S2 and Gear S3. They won't show up on the units right away, though. You will, instead, need to head over to the Galaxy Apps Store—or the Gear Manager application—to download them.

    From what we can tell, there are a total of four new watchfaces: Analog Utility, Color Pie, Dual-Dial and Intrepid—and they're fantastic. But we'd be lying if we said they looked great on the Gear S3 classic. These watchfaces, especially the former and latter, were clearly designed for rugged units like the Gear S3 frontier.
