Samsung is all set to officially announce the much touted Gear S3 smartwatch this August, according to a invitation outed by the tech giant today. The invite contained scanty details but what stood out is the caption “Talk about 3” and what looks like a watch dial hovering above the caption, an indication that the talking point of the scheduled event would likely be the Gear S3

The Samsung Gear S3 is expected to come in three variants – the Gear S3 Classic, Gear S3 Frontier and Gear S3 Explorer each tailored to meet various needs with lots of stunning features geared towards persons  with active lifestyles. All three versions will provide a GPS function, a speedometer, barometer, altimeter and lots more.
