Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch

I recently received some wearable technology as a gift and spent time testing different platforms and implementations.

Samsung Gear S3

I settled on the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier as my smartwatch of choice.

One feature’s details with which I was unfamiliar when I purchased the watch is the Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST).

For Apple and Android mobile device users who setup and use Apple Pay or Google Wallet, Samsung’s MST uses Samsung Pay but with a twist.

Where Apple Pay and Google Wallet depend on NFC, the Samsung Gear S3 opens a new opportunity for paying.

I’m trying out the blogging client for Android on my new Samsung Note 2.  I upgraded to the Samsung S3 about two months ago and enjoyed it but I decided to give this beast a try and pass the great S3 to my wife. 

I find that I like this device; between it and my Tab 10.1 (yes, I do seem to like Samsung lately) I’m leaning more and more away from keyboards to touch interfaces. 

If it wasn’t for my career in technology and gaming from my PC I think I could make a switch to mobile platforms like this.  Both the S3 & the Note 2 have quad core CPUs with 2gb of RAM.
