Samsung Gear S is a standalone smartwatch, which doesn’t rely on your Smartphone. This mini phone for your wrist will now be available in India for hefty 28,900 INR.

This Tizen based wearable has a curved Super AMOLED 2 inch display with 360 x 480 pixel resolution, powered by 1 GHz Dual core chipset, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB internal storage. The watch has its own SIM card slot for 3G and calling, GPS, heart rate sensor and also a loudspeaker.

Samsung has provided a hard home button at the front, similar in design to its Galaxy Smartphones, flanked by sensors. Since its IP67 certified you don’t have to worry about minor splashes and rain. Other features include Bluetooth, WiFi, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Ambient Light, UV, Barometer and a 300 mAh battery.

The un-conventional design is in fact quite big to snugly fit on your wrist in spite of the curved front and back. The large screen however means that you can fit more on it. It’s different, but we are not really convinced if people are looking for a ostentatiously priced mini phone to slap on their wrist.
