Swanky Untethered Smartwatches

The Samsung Gear S Can Be Used Away From Your Smartphone

— February 19, 2015 — Tech
The Samsung Gear S is a smartwatch that blends the functionality and connectivity of a smartphone with the convenience and style of a well-designed wristwatch, boldly evolving the mobile experience a step further.

The marquee feature of this device is its ability to work untethered, meaning it doesn't need to be in physical proximity of a smartphone for you to access smartphone-like features. Forget your phone at home? No need to fret, for your smartphone now effectively resides on your wrist. This makes the device perfect for outings where you might be at risk of misplacing or damaging your regular smartphone.

The Gear S lets you make and receive calls and exchange text messages even when away from your phone, while letting you enjoy other standard smartphone features such as maps, navigation, voice control, news and social media updates, fitness monitoring and a whole lot more. Of course, technological features count for little if the device isn't easy on the eye. The Gear S has a pleasing design that strikes a fine balance between straight lines and curves, allowing it to appeal to an array of potential wearers. Its crisp 2.0" Curved Super AMOLED display allows for effortless viewing and navigation, aided by an elegant interface that even the technologically challenged will take mere moments to master.

As if the reasons above aren't enough reasons to go out and get yourself one of these slick devices, here's a compelling one: the Samsung Gear S is $50 off until February 22nd, making this as good a time as any to 'gear up' and be among the first to embrace the evolution of wearable mobile technology.

Don't have the the cash for a discounted Gear S? No worries. We're giving one away to one of our awesome readers*. All you have to do is follow us on Twitter (@trendhunter) and tell us your all-time favourite piece of technology. Tell us now to win a brand new Samsung Gear S.
