Samsung Gear S3 Frontier review

 

Well connected for the sporty types

Rugged, waterproof design ; LTE radio ; Always-on display ; Strong battery life

May be too large for some

The Gear S3 Frontier looks to be Samsung's best active wearable yet, but also its biggest. The size may be divisive, but no one will question this smartwatch's style and capability.

Samsung Gear S3 review: Now an absolute bargain

 

The OS isn't as mature as Wear OS, but the Gear S3 offers sumptuous design and great health-tracking capabilities

Fantastic five-day battery life ; Great fitness-tracking capabilities ; Classy design with a neat interface

Undeniably chunky ; Unsuitable for swimmers ; Limited app support

Factor in superb battery life and luxurious high-end design and you’re left with a highly desirable smartwatch that feels like a proper premium timepiece. It would be great if it were a little more compact and at £349 the price is steep. But quality...

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier review

 

We were at IFA 2016 in Berlin to go hands-on with the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. Does Korea's finest manage to improve its Gear range with a larger screen and 4G? Samsung Gear S3 Frontier review.

Samsung Gear S3 review: A chunky but top-notch smartwatch

 

A brilliant smartwatch with seriously impressive battery life, great design and software; the best alternative to the Apple Watch Series 2

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...

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Review: Why It's (Almost) the Best Smartwatch

 

With its slick and durable design, GPS and optional LTE, the Gear S3 Frontier has all the makings of the best smartwatch ever — if only it had more apps.

, Gear S3 Frontier's biggest downside is that there simply aren't enough apps. Plus, the inability to check even sports scores or Facebook messages without your phone makes the S3 Frontier more frustrating than it should be. This is the best Android...

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Review: Samsung’s best smartwatch, just got better

 

When I reviewed the Gear S2 last year, I thought it was one of the better smartwatches on the market. Partly because Samsung design their Tizen OS to be a great operating system for smartwatches and wearables. And the same holds true that the Gear S3...

The display on the Gear S3 looks great, it is bright enough to look at when outside. It has a 1.3-inch circular Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360 and 278 ppi. It has the option to be Always On and is being protected by Corning Gorilla...

If you are looking for one of best Tizen smartwatches or even just the best Samsung smartwatch, then look no further than the Gear S3. I would recommend getting the Gear S3 Frontier, it looks much nicer and has a better feel. For some, the Gear S3...
