Samsung Gear S3 Frontier review

 

Well connected for the sporty types

Review: Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

 

No other smart watch manufacturer has risked more to create and iterate new features and functionality than Samsung. Since it introduced the Galaxy Gear years ago it has gone from supporting Google android Wear to it's proprietary Tizen OS. Through the...

Battery life is above average for a multi-functional smart watch and, after a week of use, I found that the Gear S3 Frontier could last a day and a half on a full-charge, not shabby at all for a smart watch that also features a GPS and a heart rate...

Samsung's latest Gear smartwatch is like a smartphone on your wrist

 

Samsung flies in the face of fashion and makes its cutting-edge wearable bigger.

Good design ; Great screen ; Built in LTE ; 2-day battery life

Large and bulky

If you like a large watch, you won’t find a better, or more connected, wearable than the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier.

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier review: Lots of features, not enough apps

 

Samsung tried to squeeze a lot into the new Gear S3 Frontier, from an LTE radio to automatic fitness tracking to a form of Samsung Pay that works almost anywhere. In general, these whiz-bang features work well, while an excellent user interface makes...

Still has the best smartwatch interface ; Excellent performance ; Respectable battery life ; OLED display is bright and crisp

Not many good Tizen apps ; Automatic exercise tracking can be weird ; Will be too big for some

With the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung did a commendable job building a wearable with a little something for everyone. The device still falls short in a lot of ways, including its overzealous automatic fitness tracking and a limited app selection, even...

Samsung Gear S3 frontier smartwatch review

 

I have a confession to make – I don't like watches. I don't like how they get bumped against doors and get caught in my clothes, I don't like how they remind me of school, where I had to instantly get from one class to another, I don't like the idea...

Battery can last several days per charge ; Resists water, dust, and shock ; Bright and good-looking display ; Standard 22-mm wrist band can be easily exchanged ; Simple, easy to use interface with convenient rotating bezel ; Samsung Pay support

Activity tracking capabilities could be improved ; Limited selection of third-party apps ; Limited compatibility with non-Samsung phones, still no iPhone support ; Samsung Gear companion app can be buggy

Last year’s Gear S2 was already a great smartwatch. While a little rough around the edges, it set the bar high for what was expected out of a wearable – great performance, ease of use, long battery life, to name a few examples. Because of this, the...

A truly amazing smartwatch

 

First thing's first, it's important to state that this device is the larger and more rugged of the two in the Gear S3 series, ideal for those who use their watches everywhere they go, and are looking for a companion device that can be taken anywhere....

Dissapointed

 

I did my homework and there is no doubt that this is probably the best smart watch on the market but compared with the features I have come to expect on my mobile phone the whole experience has been a let-down. If I were to leave home without my phone...

Impressive Smartwatch

 

This was a Christmas present for my son. He loves technology so was pleased with his gift. I'm considering buying one too as I like the idea of being able to text, make phone calls and listen to music just from a touch of a button on your wrist. Both...

Smart watch

 

Links with Samsung phone full of information great when out running. Thought it may be rather large but even on a slim wrist fits well.
