Allow me to take the opportunity, while writing from the Samsung Gear S3 product launch event, to once again quickly muse on the topic of smartwatches. Contrary to the sentiments of many of my colleagues, I am pleased to see the lines between "smartwatch" and "cheap replica watches" blur. I've seen the "watch future," my friends... and it is closer than you think. Moreover, my prediction is that sooner rather than later consumers will begin to use these two different terms less as smartwatches become the norm (and are just called "watches"), and all those that don't offer modern functionality might be watches that get a more descriptive title given their more niche status (I really hope it is not "dumb breitling replica watches "). Today in Berlin, prior to the electronics trade show IFA, Samsung releases their newest smartwatch and the seventh such device in their collection with the Samsung Gear S3 - and this time around, I'm actually helping Samsung to launch it by being part of their Unpacked event. Last year around the same time, Samsung released the Gear S2 which, for the first time, saw the Korean electronics giant adopt a round case design as well as implement a user interface navigation method that involved rotating the bezel - they call it Circular UX and it works pretty well. While the S2 will continue to be sold (for at least the time being), the Samsung Gear S3 more good than replica omega watches for offers a sharp upgrade in terms of a very key element of the device: how it looks on the wrist. Samsung chose to work with Swiss watch industry veteran, personal colleague, and interesting guy all-around Mr. Yvan Arpa on the Samsung Gear S3. While Mr. Arpa is known around aBlogtoWatch for his extremely avant-garde watch brand Artya (and before that, Romain Jerome), he is actually quite capable of producing more conservative watch designs. For Samsung, he helped ensure that, visually speaking, the Samsung Gear S3 would look much more like a "replica watches" on the wrist.
