Samsung Gear S3 review


The best Android smartwatch out there

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

I wanted the new gear 3 since it was available, but as I has only just purchased the gear 2 six months before I made myself wait. What a mistake. The gear 3 wipes the floor with all other smartwatches, design, comfort, battery life, everything. The...

So happy I purchased this watch!
