Samsung’s Latest Gear S3 Concept
Samsung Electronics is showcasing its concept smartwatches at the mecca of watch enthusiasts at Baselworld 2017.
Inspired by the art of watchmaking, the Gear S3 combines the meticulous details and premium design elements found on a traditional watch with the smart technology innovations demanded in a smartwatch.
The user benefits match the quality design – from water resistance and military-level durability, to a built-in speaker for calls, voice messaging and music streaming and standalone GPS to track fitness activities.
“The Gear S3 is more than just a smartwatch, it is a beautifully designed watch that puts a timeless spin on the smartwatch category, crafted for both watch aficionados and tech enthusiasts,” aid Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics.
“Samsung’s presence at Baselworld demonstrates the evolving world of technology and horology,” said watch designer, Yvan Arpa who was involved in the original design process of the Samsung Gear S3.

Michael Kors smartwatches
“It’s clear to me that the future of fashion will combine great design, personal style and innovative technology,” says Michael Kors, “and the amazing response to MICHAEL KORS ACCESS has confirmed that that future is now. We’re thrilled to be able to offer this next generation of smartwatches and hybrids.”
The Introduction of two New Touchscreen Smartwatches:
The Sofie – for women and The Grayson – for men
These additions to the smartwatch line feature updated software, a dazzling AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) touchscreen display, and are designed, like the ongoing Bradshaw and Dylan styles, for the customer who wants it all: technological innovation, social connectivity and great style.
The sleek and feminine Sofie features a thin, lightweight case body with a pavé bezel and a full round display. It will be offered in eight different plating-and-bracelet combinations, with seven quick-release interchangeable strap options.
The Grayson, made to complement the 24/7 lifestyle of the modern man, combines luxury with sporty good looks, and has a full-round dial with a rotating crown for quick scrolling. It will be offered in gold-tone, stainless steel, and blue and black ion-plate, with four interchangeable strap options.
Like all MICHAEL KORS ACCESS wearables, the Sofie and the Grayson are compatible with both Android and iOS phones thanks to cutting edge technology made possible through a partnership with Google and the Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch platform. They feature the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Wear 2100 system-on-a-chip.
