This is not a GSM watch and its 3G version is yet to be launched.
The Good
  • * Display : At 302PPI, this super AMOLed screen boasts a crunchy display, although screen size is tad small but that won't bother you much. Only problem is that your finger leaves a slight impression which is visible in bright light and you might want to clean your screen at times.
  • * Looks/Design/feel: Well, I must say that this watch is meticulously designed, the black metallic body glitters, especially in daylight, it looks gorgeous enough to please anyone. The leather band is not the best one, but it's fine.
  • * Battery: Despite the small size of battery on paper, it delivers around 2 days of battery life, thanks to the Super AMOLed display. This is funny, but SAMSUNG has always won half of its battles with the gorgeous yet power efficient displays that it offers in its fleet of devices.
