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 review: bigger and better, but not without flaws

 

Samsung's Gear S3 is an excellent smartwatch, but can it topple the Apple Watch?

Amazing battery life ; Sharp, vibrant screen ; Tizen OS ; Frontier looks great

Classic is ugly ; Too chunky for some ; Lacks apps ; US get more features

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

Samsung Gear S3 review

 

Samsung manages to make each feature in its stacked smartwatch work, making the Gear S3 one of the most enjoyable smart wearable experiences we've had this year.

Great design ; Large display is the best for notifications ; Rotating bezel is a joy to use ; Performance is top notch ; Samsung Pay works well ; Plenty of features and tools make up core experience

Design may not suit many people ; Third-party apps can be buggy ; 4G LTE and calls come at an added monthly price

Excellent Smart Watch

Great watch but lost stars due to its capabilities

 

I've had the watch about 2 weeks, and have used it everyday. It is a great classic looking watch but it's downfall is the limited apps you can actually view on the watch. The sms has limited characters you can use and I'm yet to work out how to turn...

Easy to use

 

I bought this as my Fitbit did not have all the features I wanted and I was not disappointed. A perfect companion for my s8. Easy to connect and simple to use. Fantastic smart watch.
