Want to try out the Samsung Gear S smartwatch from the comfort of your couch? Samsung has just the thing for you. It has released a Gear S experience app which will provide you with an idea of how this 3G capable smartwatch functions. This isn’t the first app of its kind, in the past Samsung has released multiple “experience apps” to provide users with a glimpse of how its new products function.
Samsung unveiled the Gear S smartwatch back in September this year. It is different from its rivals because the Gear S has 3G capability. It doesn’t require a phone in order to access mobile data, the smartwatch is very much capable of accessing the internet through 3G or even Wi-Fi.
Obviously an app can’t provide the exact same user experience as the actual device itself but it does let users test out a couple of features, like how messages can be sent using the on-screen keyboard or by using voice commands. It even lets users take a look at the various health related functions of the Gear S.
Samsung Gear S experience app is available as a free download from the Google Play Store. It will run on any Android device that’s powered by version 4.0 or higher.
