In fact even on the opposite side there is a stairway which goes down. I dunno if other people explored them or not.
The Samsung Gear S3 has made its way to many markets including the US, Europe, and the far east. If you have a Samsung Galaxy Device then you can download the Gear Manager App, that is used to connect to the smartwatch with the phone, from Galaxy Apps Store. If you are using a non-Samsung device you have to do things a little differently.
Whilst we wait for the iOS Gear Manager app to become available users are using the Leaked version that became available. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long now for the official version.

It's been a little over five months since the release of the Xen 4.7 series, and it looks like the development team behind this highly customizable, extensible and flexible type-1 or baremetal hypervisor did not stop improving the software and adding new features to it.
