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

 

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 smartwatch review - great design and stylish functionality

Gear app could be better, will seem expensive to some. ; The Gear S3 is easily Samsung’s best smartwatch and one of the best on the market. It features the design and style of a real watch and combines that with all the smarts you’ll ever need.

The Gear S3 is easily Samsung’s best smartwatch and one of the best on the market. It features the design and style of a real watch and combines that with all the smarts you’ll ever need. It’s not cheap at $599 but that’s still a pretty competitive...

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 Classic

 

Samsungs beste smartklokke hittil, men den er allerede på etterskudd.

Gear S3 føles som et fint skritt fremover fra den tidligere modellen. Den ser mer ut som en tradisjonell klokke, uansett om man velger Classic- eller Frontier-modellen. Den har blitt bedre til treningen, og Tizen har nå flere kjente apper. Heldigvis er...
