Gear S added by Samsung Canada

Samsung Canada, one of the leading suppliers of mobile products to Canadian consumers, announced the latest GearSaddition to its innovative line of Gear wearables – the Gear S. Hitting the shelves of Samsung Brand Stores beginning November 14th, 2014 and rolling out to carriers and retailers throughout the month of November, the Gear S combines an elegant, curved design with 3G1 connectivity and allows users to do more on the go – with or without their smartphone².

“The Samsung Gear S defines the next level of wearables,” said Paul Brannen, Executive Vice President, Mobile Solutions, Samsung Canada. “Whether making calls, receiving calls, or keeping in touch and updated, the Gear S delivers the freedom and connectivity our consumers want – right on their wrists.”

More Freedom:

With access to 3G1, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi®, the remarkable Samsung Gear S keeps Canadians connected with or without their smartphone2, which makes checking up on calendar and app notifications, calls, and social networking easy and fast. The Gear S also makes staying connected easier since its charger cradle doubles as an extra 315 mAh battery pack and the device features Power Saving Mode, which changes the display to black and white and limits non-essential functions to maximize time between charges.

For Canadians looking for a great fitness companion, the Gear S is ideal thanks to enhanced multi-sensors and a built-in GPS. Plus, the Gear S offers even more control over everyday fitness by combining the device with a variety of apps, such as Nike+ and S Health3, helping consumers stay motivated while on the move.

More Than Meets the Eye:

Featuring a 2-inch curved Super AMOLED display, the Gear S delivers a rich and detailed viewing experience, brought to life through its beautiful and easy-to-use interface. With features such as Conversation View and Condensed Font, the Gear S gives the power to read messages and notifications with a single glance. The chic, curved design fits comfortably around the contours of the wrist and becomes an extension of the user’s personal style by giving the ability to customize screen options and interchangeable straps.

With over 1,000 apps already available in the Gear App Store, the Samsung Gear S offers even more ways to enjoy mobile freedom:

  • Location-based services like Turn-by-Turn navigation and Maps
  • View notifications from Facebook
  • QWERTY keyboard, continuous input and voice dictation, making text messages and emails easier

Pricing and Availability:

The Gear S will be available through major Canadian carriers and retailers beginning November 14, 2014 at an MSRP of CAD$399.99.
