Samsung Gear S3 review


The best smartwatch for your Android phone

Animated always-on display ; Great activity tracking ; Intuitive interface

Very large on the wrist ; GPS tracking suspect ; Severe lack of apps

Bigger, bolder and more feature-rich than ever, this is a brilliant smartwatch in many ways. It just depends on whether you actually want a digital timepiece - and if you're prepared to pay handsomely for the privilege.

Samsung Gear S3 Classic review


You spin me right round, baby, right round…

Superb styling ; Fantastic fitness features ; Smart software that makes sense on your wrist

Lack of apps at launch ; Not swim proof like an Apple Watch ; Bit on the big side

A few more apps and Samsung might beat Android Wear at its own game - this is a superb smartwatch, if not quite the best just yet

Compact and reliable

Can't customise your ring tone. Only the pre installed ringtones can be used.

SAMSUNG Gear S3 Classic - Silver, Universal


I love that it has the detachable key board. I can swap between tablet or keyboard mode quick and easy. I used to have a Samsung tab 2. This is so much better!! It's so portable. Looks good.

Haven't found anything yet
