Exactly a year ago, Samsung announced their collaboration with the fashion brand BALR, before launching the Gear S2 smartwatch in the Netherlands. BALR was founded by the professional footballer players Demy de Zeeuw, Eljero Elia and Gregory van der Wiel, which focused on football players. The products by this company are seen being used by famous Dutch DJ’s like Hardwell, Nicky Romero, and others. The BALR Edition of Gear S2 was indeed an exquisite smartwatch with exclusive watch strap and watch face.
This year too, Samsung has decided to work with the brand to launch their Gear S3 smartwatch in the Netherlands. It is more or less the same watch, with a different brand name and couple new watch faces. As the regular editions of the Gear S3 Classic and the Gear S3 Frontier go for sale at 399 euros, the BALR edition costs 499 euros but includes the BALR leather watch band and BALR Braided Bracelet – which tally worth 125 euros. There are two special watch faces included as well. The Gear S3 BALR Edition goes live on sale in the Netherlands on Friday, December 2.
