Opera Mini is the Norwegian web giant's lightest browser, offering rendered web pages; making it ideal for smaller screens and for times when you have a poor connection.
Remember, the Samsung Gear S is a standalone device (after the initial Galaxy registering, of course), that boasts its own SIM card slot and 3G connectivity - although you will need a separate SIM card plan in order to take advantage of the untethered call and message features.
Opera Mini on the Gear S works just the same as it does on a basic smartphone; with pinch to zoom, swipe navigation, Speed Dial buttons and offline page saving all present and correct.
The Tizen-friendly web browser joins the likes of Nokia by getting in on the Samsung Gear S action (HERE maps come pre-loaded on the new smartwatch). The Korean tech giant has also teamed up with Nike to offer the popular Nike+ Running app straight out of the box.
With a 2-inch 480 x 360 display, the Gear S is certainly the most qualified smartwatch to offer a web browser although we're still not entirely sure how useful it will be. Only time will tell though - we look forward to reviewing the Samsung Gear S very soon.
