Definite Upgrade

I’ve owned the Gear S2 for years and loved it. So I wasn’t sure if I needed to upgrade to the S3. But boy am I glad I did! It seems to be almost the same watch mechanically. With most of the same functions, which is great. But the Larger size and weight gives it a much more luxurious look and feel. I actually love everything about it including charging it. I can spend hours trying out new features and searching for new watch faces. Which makes it always feel brand new to me. I proudly wear it daily and constantly field questions about it. My favorite features are the email and text notifications. Also the find my phone feature (which I use a lot!), and the ability to control the music player. There are many other features that I love but the brightness and clarity of the screen blows me away every time I look at it. I’m very happy with this watch and have already purchase a second one in the Classic design. To me this is the best smart watch on the market. Thanks Samsung!

The Creme de la Creme of Smartwatches

Take note Tim COOK .This is what a smartwatch looks like in masculinity not a feminine Apple Watch. When Samsung hooked up with Swiss watchmakers, they had a hot number as I have this and the S3 Classic BT. Rolex,Omega,Tag and Jacob watches are classic but smartwatches are the future and pretty soon,they will project holographic UX and ONLY Samsung can bring that.

Thank you TMo and Samsung

Great hardware, intuitive UI, very long battery life

I’ve had a lot of experience, with smartwatches, owning 8+ smartwatches, from the original pebble, multiple fitbits, samsung galaxy gear, moto360, etc, and the Samsung Frontier S3 is one of the best I’ve owned.

Pros:
– Incredibly responsive UI: one of my favorite things is to spin the bezel to switch screens. It is so quick, the screens transition as fast as you can turn the dial, it’s fun just to spin the dial around quickly. The dial is also great for accessing information when you have gloves on
– Battery life: from what I’ve seen, typical smartwatches with color displays last one, two days at best. The S3 Frontier has lasted me 4 days without a recharge, on medium brightness. The option to enable additional power saving can really extend battery life
– Solid build: I’ve had multiple Fitbits break during strenuous activity, but I’ve had barely a scratch on the S3 Frontier. I have not had issues weightlifting, biking and running with it on – it’s rugged enough for the outdoors.

Cons:
– Lack of applications: there are a good amount of applications, though the quality of some may be lacking. Fortunately Samsung has provided an extensive SDK for application development, of which I plan to create my own apps
– Altimeter: it seems readings to vary a bit, if you want to make use of it, you should calibrate it frequently [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Samsung mixes sleek design with integrated functionality

It is awesome to see how far Samsung has come in the wearables game. Back when I had the S5, I got the Gear Fit which was great, but after a few months went the way of most wearables…I began to forget to charge it and then left it at home and would occasionally pick it back up and wear it again for a week or two.

While the device was great and made me appreciate my Galaxy phone, even more, the functionality was limited. When the Frontier came out, I began researching it, to see if I would once again invest in a wearable device. I am so glad I did.

This is absolutely the greatest smart watch on the market.I have a lot of friends who are loyal to other brands, and without fail every single one of them is jealous of my watch.

Samsung has been able to take wearable technology and make it integrated technology. I can’t imagine going a day or even a few hours without my watch.

I love Samsung Pay, and the watch can handle electronic payments quickly and flawlessly. Making calls on the phone is also easy (and much safer when driving), and they are crystal clear.

The activity trackers are incredibly accurate. I love the little nudge when I have been inactive for an hour at work. I also kept a sleep log and matched it against my watch, and it was precise without ever having to manually start tracking (which I always forgot to do with other wearable devices).

If you are even slightly on the fence about getting a smart watch, get this watch, you will not be disappointed. Thank you, Samsung! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
