Samsung has unveiled the Gear S3 and it's coming in two flavours. First up is the Samsung Gear S3 Classic, the natural successor to the Gear S2. Then there's the more rugged Samsung Gear S3 Frontier.

Both still feature that rotating bezel that the Wareable team are all big fans of. Both pack in the same features across the board, but there's some small differences in the design and connectivity departments.

Hands-on: Samsung Gear S3 review

The Classic Gear S3 has a minimalistic, analogue look with its stainless steel body and circular buttons next to the brushed metal rotating bezel. So like the Gear S2, this is one for the office and showing off in your business meetings.

The Frontier Gear S3 on the other hand, is aimed at fitness and 'exploration' fans, as Samsung puts it. The sportier S3 has a slightly larger, raised bezel (also rotating) with rectangular, textured buttons. It's also heavier weighing in at 62g, in comparison to the Gear S3 Classic's 57g body.

All the Gear S3's are ruggedized and have been slapped with an IP68 water and dust resistant certification. Samsung says it has tested the models with military level standards ensuring that they're durable and able to withstand very high and very low temperatures, shock, dust and extreme vibrations.

On the connectivity front, there's differences too. The Classic comes with Bluetooth/Wi-Fi while the Frontier will offer up a Bluetooth or standalone LTE flavour, which comes in handy for some of the new features.
