Some of the features common to both Classic and Frontier models of Gear 3 smartwatch include 1.3-screens coated in scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass SR+; a dual-core Exynos chipset; a stainless steel chassis; and IP68 rating for water resistance; 786MB of RAM; 4GB of storage capacity; GPS; and a 380mAh battery.
