One of the first smartwatches to support independent voice calling feature was unveiled by Samsung at the pre-IFA 2014 tech show, back in September this year. Dubbed as the Gear S, the new smartwatch with the SIM card slot was announced in India last month at Rs. 28,900. However, the South Korean tech giant didn't make it available then.
Anyways, not to worry, now Samsung has started taking pre-orders for the smartwatch in the sub-continent via its official eStore. You can thus pre-book the device by paying just Rs. 1,000. The Samsung Gear S comes in Blue Black and White colors.
