Samsung Russia have now put the Gear S3 Frontier and the Gear S3 Classic both on pre-order in Russia. If customers act reasonably quickly they can also get an extra stylish strap as part of the deal for Free. Im not quite sure what the stylish strap looks like, possibly it points it out in Russian but I didn't see it.
On the S3 you can change the watch faces, which there are a huge amount of in the Galaxy Apps Store, and you can swap out the watch straps for other 22mm straps. We have a review coming online of quite a few, so please keep checking back.
The S3 seems to be well received globally as stores in the UK, US, and elsewhere have ran out of stock. I find the rotating bezel to be a pleasure to use on the S3, making navigating the screen an easy thing to do. This device has a larger screen than the S2 and is better for me to read messages or even the Introduction of a particular email. Dust and water resistance of IP68 should also make this attractive to our Russian comrades. Both Gear S3 devices have a 1.3-inch screen, 46mm body, super AMOLED 360x360 screen, GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, Barometer, Altometer, and Pedometer.
If you have a non-Samsung Galaxy smartphone then do not worry your phone might still be compatible with the service. Check this compatibility list to make sure.
