CDN Top Newsmakers for 2014: James Politeski of Samsung

There was a lot of chatter on wearable technology in 2014. In fact, CDN thought about making it its own story for the 25th Spot. I won’t ruin the suspense for you as you still have to check out No. 25 to see what Top Story made the list this year.

But while technology vendors talked about wearables Samsung may have been the only major vendor to release wearables into the market on a semi-regular fashion. You have to give credit to James Politeski, Samsung Canada president for making wearables a priority for the company in Canada.

Case in point: Samsung Canada’s new Gear S wearable will allow users to do more, even when they’re not tethered to their smartphone.

The Gear S was one of many wearables from Samsung’s Gear line. The Gear S features a new curved design and 3G connectivity and new functionality for users, whether they’re connected to their smartphones or not.

One of the main things that make many smartwatches not so smart is that they need to be paired with a mobile phone in order for its user to receive and make calls.
