Samsung's Gear S3 smartwatch is a revert back to more traditional analogue styles by incorporating tech innovations to provide efficiency and seamless connectively, while incorporating the more classic aesthetic of mechanical timepieces. This is in the revival of the watch hands and ticking features, that are often an aesthetic feature left out of modern smartwatches.
The Gear S3 still allows for all the perks of a digital smartwatch in terms of notification updates, syncing to wireless devices, powerful camera capabilities and a long lasting battery. However, the watch incorporates some of the more classic features of an analogue watch in the aesthetic and theme of the piece. This includes digital hand displays and a circular face as oppose to a square.
