Review: Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch

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

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


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.

The year is just started and Samsung has now launched its Tizen-based Gear S3 smartwatch in India in two variants - Classic and Frontier. We got its Classic version while the Frontier is the sports edition focused on a different look. The Gear S3 is...

Not great


Does not track workouts properly. Keeps crashing mid way through. That's if it even starts in the first place. Really big, clunky and unattractive on a womans wrist. Waste of time and money! Only plus side is that I'm not allergic to this watch and it...

Doesn't work


I brought this a little over a month ago and I have had to send it to Samsung twice to be repaired. The Samsung health system and GPS cuts out after it's been used for about 5 days. Spent so much for something that I cannot use. Not happy
