Well, the Baselworld watch show 2017 is in full swing, and Samsung is not going to leave any stones unturned. It will use this opportunity to show off three new series of concepts of Samsung Wild Gear S3 Hybrid pocket watch. It is a smart pocket watch, and it is one of the best smartwatch ideas you have seen till date.
When we speak about a Samsung Smartwatch, the first thing that comes to mind is Samsung will replace the mechanical innards with Samsung’s hardware. That would work too. But watch designer Yvan Arpa didn’t stop there. The Gear S3 is already on the inside, and the back of the case is repurposed for traditional mechanical movements. The Samsung Wild gear S3 Hybrid will also come with a lid which includes a compass.
Will the Samsung Wild gear S3 Hybrid Pocket emerge as a real product in the market?
If you have a look at the other two concepts, one of them comes with a fancier finish for Gear S3. The other variant comes with watches with similar case design like Gear S3, but the digital components are swapped with Swiss crafted mechanical movements.
These are great, but we would like to see the Samsung Wild Gear S3 Hybrid pocket watch concept coming into the market as a real product. All the three above mentioned designs are not in manufacturing yet. Samsung also didn’t announce any official plans to create next-gen Samsung smart watches.
Samsung needs to break its own limits
Well, apart from this Samsung Hybrid smartwatch, the company released a Classic Gear S3 Smartwatch model. It comes with 4G LTE connectivity. The smartwatch is presently using three major mobile networks that include AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. So Gear S3 Frontier is not the only smartwatch offering LTE, the Gear S3 Classic variant raised the bar of Smartwatches.
It provides users with great connectivity features on the go. It has got a dual-core 1.0 GHz Exynos 7270 processor, 4GB of storage, 768MB of RAM and 380 mAh battery. So, if Samsung Wild Gear S3 Hybrid is to become popular in the market, it needs to bring some additional features from the classic version. Samsung set up a benchmark for itself; now it’s time to break their limits.
