How good it would have been if one can make calls right from their smartwatch without connecting it to any device? Well that sounds trendy of course. The company has launched the Samsung Gear S in India for a price of Rs 28900, the company’s latest Gear smartwatch running Tizen-based wearable OS. The main highlight is built-in SIM card slot that lets you independently make and receive calls, without connecting to a device and also offers 3G support.

We already know it has been priced at Rs 28,900 in India and now we can pre-order it by paying only Rs 1,000 and we will get an electronic pre-book coupon. It will go on sale later this week and you can use the pre-book coupon to adjust from the final pricing when you buy it from the eStore. The company promises to deliver the smartwatch in 3-5 business days once you have placed the order.
