Also, Samsung have sent out a firmware update for the Gear S3 Classic and the Gear S3 Frontier. Post update you will be on version R770XXU1APK3 (Classic) / R760XXU1APK3 (Frontier). Apparently the update is supposed to bring with it support for a speedometer, but that has not been confirmed at the moment.
It usually take a short while for the update to reach all regions so you might have to wait a little while for it to be your turn. We will have our hands on review of the S3 up shortly, but in the meanwhile you can see our unboxing video of this smartwatch.
