Samsung’s Gear S smartwatch hits the UK on November 7 for £329

Announced back in August, Samsung’s new Gear S smartwatch is a proper ‘smart’ watch, given you can make calls and go online without a smartphone. And Samsung has now confirmed it’s going on sale in the UK this week.

The Tizen-powered timepiece lets you receive notifications from social networks, calendars and apps, as well as reply to incoming messages using the onscreen keyboard.
