Samsung Gear S3 review


There's still a lot to love about the Gear S3

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 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

Review: Samsung Gear S3 Classic | Practical And Smart Samsung Gear S3 Classic


Samsung's best smartwatch so far, but it's already in arrears.

Good battery life. Smart navigation with rotating ring. Good integration of software and hardware.

The software is lagging behind the competition. The size does not fit everyone.

Gear S3 feels like a nice step up from the previous model. It looks more like a traditional watch, regardless of whether you choose the Classic or the Frontier model. It has become better for training, and Tizen now has several well-known apps....

Samsung Gear S3 Classic Review: The Best Gets Even Better - MySmartPrice


The Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch — the successor to the iconic and beautiful Gear S2 — was showcased just before IFA 2016 last year. The Gear S3 is available in three variants: Gear S3 classic (Wi-Fi + cellular), Gear S3 classic (Wi-Fi only) and Gear S3...

May be too big for some wrists ; App support not as good as Apple Watch's ; Needs a better voice assistant ; Loudspeaker could be better

Samsung Gear S3 Classic review: the best Smartwatch till date


Samsung has been in the wearable segment for a long time now. Recently, the company launched the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier and Classic and here's our review

Decent design ; Excellent battery life ; Use the watch with any 22mm strap ; Gorgeous design

Bundled leather strap could have been better ; Priced on a heavier side ; Not ideal or iOS users

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

Just what I wanted


Bought this for hubby, he was super pleased with it. Arrived very quickly no issues. The watch looks great and works well. Purchased a second more sporty strap for various activities and looks awesome.” For both fitness and as a watch.
