The next Samsung Tizen smartwatch is geared towards outdoor enthusiasts.

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier will have new sensors ideal for outdoor sports. Now we have confirmation that the leaked Frontier moniker means that Samsung targets outdoor enthusiasts with its new Tizen smartwatch to be unveiled in September at the IFA 2016.

According to SamMobile the Gear S3 features GPS, Altimeter, Barometer and speedometer functionality. These new features set the Gear S3 very apart from the Apple Watch. Apple needs the iPhone to display location and speed. The Apple Watch does not know about altitude as both iPhone and Apple Watch lack a pressure sensor.

The Gear S3 will also be in a better position to compete with smartwatches offered by fitness tracker companies like Fitbit and Garmin.
