The Samsung Gear S is Samsung's most ambitious wearable. It was presented at the IFA fair in Berlin, which was held between the end of August and the beginning of September last year. Samsung had entered this segment strong and the Gear S took the smartwatch concept one step further. The Korean company created a totally independent device , a feature that other watches cannot boast. The Gear S has a SIM card slot , which means that it can connect to the Internet and even allows us to make calls, almost as if we were in a futuristic movie. One of the downsides of the Gear S is its size , and that is that carrying a 2-inch screen on the wrist is not for just any user. The good thing about having a large panel is that we can type with its full QWERTY keyboard and see the content with greater comfort. Samsung has made a selection of 10 apps compatible with the Samsung Gear S that can be purchased from the Gear Apps store and they promise to make our day to day easier, we will tell you what they are.
If you live in Madrid or are passing through the capital, the municipal transport app can help you find the best route to your destination, and all from your wrist. It informs about the time the bus will take, the nearby stops and which lines pass through them. In addition, when we get on the bus, it counts the stops and warns us with a slight vibration when we arrive at our destination.
The Iberia company also has its own app for Gear Apps. In this case, the user will be able to download the boarding passes of their flights and check-in directly with the clock, avoiding having to remove papers.

Another ally of drivers. Radars warn of nearby radars while driving, but to avoid distracting us it does so with a discreet vibration.
This function can save us more than one scare. Co-pilot Mutua collects readings from the watch's sensors and alerts us when there is a risk of drowsiness or we have spent too much time driving.
Its name leaves nothing to the imagination. This tool allows you to save and play voice memos that are recorded through the built-in microphone of the Samsung Gear S.
The messaging application par excellence could not be missing. The Gear S allows us to install WhatsApp so that we can see the messages of our contacts directly on our wrist. But we can also respond through the QWERTY keyboard or the voice to text function.
