3G Phone and Messaging Abilities
Samsung Gear S2 with 3G Connectivity
There’s a common dilemma with technology and running: You want to decompress and get away from the noise and commotion of everyday life, but you don’t want to leave your phone at home in case of an emergency, so you’re stuck strapping it to your arm and praying your sweat doesn’t cause water damage. That’s not the case with this GPS watch from Samsung. The Gear S2 boasts a 3G phone and messaging app, so you can call, text, or email your partner if you get locked out of your apartment after a meandering eight-mile run; or call 911 if you get attacked by a swarm of hornets on your backcountry trek. The watch has speakers and a microphone, and is bolstered with onboard GPS and supports apps like Nike+ to record and track your every move.
