After the recent Amazon Prime sale, Amazon India is back now with yet another round of discounts specifically for Samsung products called the Samsung Mobile Fest. The sale will go on until the 26th of July with discounts upto Rs. 2,000 on most of its smartphones. Sadly, none of the Tizen smartphones have received any discounts on their prices. However, if you have been eyeing for a Gear S3 then you're in luck as the Gear S3 has been listed with a Rs. 2,000 discount from its original price of Rs. 28,500 thus costing Rs. 26,500 for the Frontier and Classic variants.
The Gear S3 features a 1.3 inch circular Super AMOLED display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass SR+. The Gear S3 has a lot of embedded sensors such as GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope, heart rate sensor, barometer and altimeter making it a complete fitness tracker on its own. There is a 380mAh Li-ion battery which powers the smartwatch and can easily last over a day. On the connectivity front, the Gear S3 features Bluetooth V4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n, NFC, MST, GPS/Glonass connectivity.
