Samsung has just recently launched iOS mobile apps for its Gear S3, Gear S2, and Gear Fit2 smartwatches, effectively bringing iOS compatibility to its wearable devices. This means that owners of these gadgets can now pair their iPhone device (that is, if they have one) with any one of these Samsung smartwatches.
Samsung has just announced that its latest wearable device offering, the Gear S3, will be hitting store shelves everywhere this coming November 18th. Just to be clear, both the LTE connected and Bluetooth only versions will be launching on that date. For those who want to purchase the smartwatch in advance, they can start preordering on November 6th.
Owners of iPhone devices apparently would rather buy Apple’s wireless headphones than go purchase the company’s smartwatch offering, at least according to a recent survey. Indeed, in conducting a poll in the United States, the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Research found that 12 percent of those surveyed have plans to get Apple’s wireless AirPods, which cost $159.
Samsung is sometimes credited for popularizing the use of phablets (smartphones with large display screens), and now the South Korean tech giant appears to be looking to make big smartwatches popular, too. Recently this week, the company formally introduced the Gear S3, its latest addition to its Gear S lineup of smartwatch devices.
Apple has made it official -- this year’s iPhone offering, the iPhone 7, will be formally unveiled this coming September 7th (as previously rumored). It will be happening at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium located in the city of San Francisco in California at exactly 10 AM Pacific Time. As always, Apple fans everywhere can expect Tim Cook, the current chief executive officer of the company, to personally announce the newest iPhone devices himself.
Makers of Android powered devices are often criticized for taking so long to update their products with the latest version of Google’s Android mobile operating system. The biggest phone maker of them all, Samsung, is no exception to this. But the South Korean mobile giant is working to change all that by announcing that its latest phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, will get Android 7.0 Nougat before the end of this year.
Everybody is all eager for this summer’s Olympic Games, which happens next month in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. Adding to the excitement is Apple who is set to debut 14 new bands for its Apple Watch, and each of these brand new bands is inspired by flags of major competitor countries participating in the 31st Olympics. But wait -- the new bands will only be made available in Brazil.
Among today’s wearable devices, fitness trackers are still the undisputed best sellers, but smartwatch devices are beginning to catch on. According to market research firm NPD, activity trackers are still more widely used compared to smartwatches across most categories related to fitness, especially among owners of wearable devices who work out.
Looking to get an Apple Watch but still haven’t got to purchasing one just yet? You might want to head over to Best Buy. The retail giant has decided to offer both the entry level Apple Watch Sport and the midrange Apple Watch at discounted prices. Considering that the Apple Watch comes in many variants, Best Buy’s discounts may vary.
