Samsung has teamed up with TUMI to bring a special edition for its Gear S3 frontier smartwatch. Announced for the United States market, the Gear S3 frontier TUMI Special Edition is now available for purchase on Best Buy’s website and Samsung.com with in-store availability in Best Buy starting from August 6 (in select locations).
So what does the special edition have? Well, it’s a regular Gear S3 frontier when you consider hardware-wise but TUMI’s collaboration brings a watchband designed by TUMI and a custom watchface. According to Samsung, the watchband sports “signature Earl Grey colorway and is constructed from an Italian canvas, which features a stainless-steel buckle and stitched edge detailing”. It also claims to resist water, dust, and rough conditions.
As with the other Gear S3 smartwatches, this special edition also supports Samsung Pay and comes with built-in GPS, Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass SR+ protection, 4GB of internal storage, 768MB RAM, a dual-core processor and up to three days of battery life.
The Gear S3 smartwatch is compatible with any Android phone running Android 4.4 and above and iPhone running iOS 9 and above.
Gear S3 frontier TUMI Special Edition is priced at $449.99.
