Samsung Gear S Smartwatch Now Available via Retail Stores in India
While Samsung is still taking online pre-orders for its 'forthcoming' Tizen-based Gear S smartwatch via its online store in India, NDTV Gadgets has learnt that the smartwatch is already available in stores.

Update: Notably, the Gear S smartwatch has now been listed with price on the Samsung India online store, at Rs. 27,900 - but is not yet available to buy.

Earlier this week, Samsung started taking pre-orders for Gear S with a booking amount of Rs. 1,000, but it did not include availability details. Samsung's online India store still lists the Gear S as a 'forthcoming' product which has an expected delivery time of 5 to 7 working days once it becomes available.

The South Korean giant had first unveiled Gear S smartwatch ahead of IFA 2014. The firm last month announced the Gear S in India will sport a Rs. 29,500 (MRP) price tag, and an estimated market operating price of Rs. 28,900.

The Samsung Gear S allows users to make and receive calls via 2G or 3G, and also offers Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi connectivity. It has a separate slot for a SIM card on the back panel along with the heart rate sensor and four pogo pins.

Samsung says the smartwatch will always remain connected, and can also switch between multiple networks to stay synchronised with the paired smartphone. However, to be precise, the Gear S smartwatch is not truly standalone, as it requires one of 20 Samsung smartphones during initial setup, and to download apps.

The Gear S features a 2-inch curved Super AMOLED display with a 360x480 pixel resolution. A dual-core 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM powers the Samsung Gear S. It comes with 4GB of inbuilt storage and is backed by a 300mAh Li-ion battery, rated to deliver 2 days of charge with typical usage.
