The recently announced Samsung Gear S smartwatch will be launched in a special edition variant packing Swarovski crystals. The strap of the smartwatch uses Swarovski’s Crystal Fine Mesh technology, adding that extra bit of bling to the device. Underneath, the Swarovski version of the Gear S is pretty much the same as the regular variant, so it’s only a visual overhaul.
There’s no word on the pricing at the moment, but we expect it to be slightly more expensive than the standard Gear S. Samsung hasn’t fully disclosed the pricing of the Gear S, so there’s no word on exactly how much more expensive this version will be. But it goes without saying that the smartwatch will border in close to or even beyond $300. Availability is slated to commence next month in regions where Swarovski edition Samsung devices are currently available, so don’t get your hopes up just yet.
Samsung and Swarovski have teamed up to announce special edition devices and accessories in the past. The Gear S runs Tizen out of the box, which makes it compatible only with Samsung smartphones and tablets. It features a beautiful curved display design and also packs cellular connectivity, making it a worthwhile companion device.
