Samsung announced the local pricing for its upcoming Gear S3 smartwatch today. Both the Gear S3 Frontier with its dark gunmetal finish and rubber strap, and the Gear S3 Classic, with its shiny stainless steel case and leather strap will retail for S$548 (the same price that the Gear S2 Classic launched for last year). Expected availability for both smartwatches is Q4 this year, however Samsung is unable to announce an exact release date at this time.

Compared to the Gear S2, the Gear S3 is quite a bit larger and chunkier, and now incorporates a built-in speaker and GPS, as well as Samsung Pay functionality. Like last year's Gear S2, the Gear S3 is IP68 dust and water resistant. Both the Classic and Frontier S3 are also military graded by the MIL-STD 810G standard.
