Samsung (SSNLF) has just released its latest high-tech timepiece. And there's an odd-looking, Bluetooth-enabled necklace-y thing to go with it. More about that in a bit.
The South Korean tech giant unveiled the Samsung Gear S smartwatch on Thursday. The device features a curved screen. Curves are quickly becoming a hallmark of Samsung products as it is touting the feature for its TVs as well.
Samsung's new watch also features the now ubiquitous set of health and fitness tracking features, including a running app from Nike (NKE).
But perhaps the biggest advancement with the Gear S is the fact that it has 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity that allows a wearer of the watch to make and receive calls even if the user's phone is not in close proximity.
