New Samsung Gear S gets Nike+ integration Samsung has announced that its new Gear S smartwatch will come with Nike+ pre-installed, marking the first time a third-party watch has come with the running and fitness app.
The Gear S features a 2-inch curved screen with 360x480 resolution and a built-in 3G modem, allowing you to make phone calls without a synced device.

On the software side, the Tizen OS comes with a few goodies. Real-time map navigation is provided by Nokia (HERE) and the awesome Spritz speed reading software is built-in as well. Powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM, Samsung says the 300mAh battery should give you two days of usage per charge. Just like the newly announced G Watch R, the Gear S has a compass, accelermometer, gyroscope, barometer and heart rate monitor. It is also IP67 dust and water resistant.

The Nike+ app will give you feedback while running or display your NikeFuel stats.
