The pressure is on competitors like Samsung and Apple to replicate that success, and Samsung recently released an interesting watch to do just that.

That's thanks to a built-in SIM card, WiFi and GPS, letting the Gear S remain useful in situations where other smartwatches turn into overpriced dumb watches. Let's take a closer look at what Samsung have developed.
