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

Great watch. Attractive design. Definitely not too big for most men assuming you like a decent sized watch. Excellent watch faces, super clear screen and good battery life. Connectivity between this and S6 is great. Few problems... Run tracking so far...

Solved my talking while walking problem


Having recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy 8+ phone I found its size meant i had to carry it inside my bag, not handy when phoned while out walking. I tried a Bluetooth earpiece but found that made my ear sore when worn for a long time, so then decided...
