The Samsung Gear S which we first had a glimpse of at this year’s IFA expo is ready to hit markets in the US during this fall season. It’s a smartwatch which uniquely enough isn’t mandated to be connected to any other device, and will hence will sold by major carriers in the country that include Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
This device has been provided with its very own nano SIM card slot which sits on its rear surface. With it, you can access 3G data, thus eliminating the need for a smartphone or any other device being connected to it.
