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


I previously had an apple watch but have upgraded to the Samsung gear. I find it much easier to use and love the apps it has on it.

Looks great and does as advertised.


The watch links seamlessly to my phone. I now don't have to go to my pocket every time I receive a notification. I like changing the watch faces so to make it look like a different watch. The price was great too with £100 saving.
