Picture this: You’re out running an errand and reach for your phone, only to realize (dramatic music plays) you forgot it at home or in the car. How will you know if you got an urgent call or new message? How will you pay for those groceries and cookies you’re in line for? How will you search online for that random celebrity’s name you can’t remember from that movie you’re thinking about?

It’s ok, because you have a connected smartwatch like the new Samsung Gear S3 to do all that, while phoneless. And it’s compatible with Verizon NumberShare, meaning the smartwatch shares the same number with your smartphone to make and receive calls and texts.

FOMO be gone.

Your wrist, with 4G LTE

With a connected smartwatch your wrist can do all this, with or without your phone nearby:

  • Access to the Gear App Store to download apps1 you need. Catch a ride home, check sports scores (not while on a date though), stream music, search vacation flights (when your boss isn’t looking), and more – all over 4G LTE.
  • Say it out loud. Use S Voice to do a web search, set reminders, call or text a friend, all with your voice and while being phoneless.
  • Use Samsung Pay2 to easily make payments with your watch almost anywhere you can swipe a card, even without your phone or wallet.
  • Samsung Health activity tracking with built-in GPS and Heart Rate monitor.

The right look for you

The Gear S3 frontier is designed for the elements offering military-grade performance with a more rugged look and a rubberized strap, while the Gear S3 Classic features an elegant and stylish look with its steel bezel and black leather strap. Pick the smartwatch that fits your style perfectly. And since both are IP68-rated3 to resist water and dust, your watch will continue to work with whatever you do.
