The device lets you record in 4K, or livestream and then download and store content for yourself with the Samsung Gear 360 application.

Gear S3—This smartwatch is built to look like a traditional timepiece, but is equipped with advanced features that enable the user to take and respond to calls, read messages, and use different built-in applications with just a twist of the bezel. It comes in two styles: the more standard-looking “Classic,” and the sporty “Frontier”. But though these variants complement different looks, they both come with water- and dust-resistant technology, and a long-lasting battery, so you can wear it anytime, anywhere.
