Top Customer Reviews
1) Just as with the Gear S2, setup was a breeze. The Samsung Gear app in my Galaxy Note 5 picked up the S3 immediately and went through setting it up effortlessly. It was nice to see that I can toggle between my S2 and S3 settings by simply selecting the watch model from the dropdown in the top left corner of the app.
2) Even though the watch is fairly big at 46mm -- larger than my 42mm Movado Series 800 -- it didn't look large on my wrist. Maybe I was just prepared for the size, but the features on the watch like the rotating bezel, buttons, and screen are well balanced. Maybe the dark color helps but it didn't look or feel big on my slender wrist. By the way, that rotating bezel is awesome. I bet Apple wishes they had thought different!
3) The watch faces that came with it were pretty nice compared to the funky ones that the S2 had. I felt less of a compulsion to buy replacement ones, although if you pay a few bucks, there are a few good ones out there that are more functional than the stock watch faces.
4) The speaker on the watch rocks! I left it at the default loudness setting of 4 and I can hear calls perfectly. The maximum call volume is 6. I had my lady call me from the phone. She is very soft-spoken and I could hear her perfectly. You don't need to bring the watch close to your mouth to be heard clearly. For all other sounds, which are Ringtone, Media, Notifications and System, I left them set to 7. Maximum volume for those is 15. Again, the speaker is pretty loud for such a small device.
5) Answering or rejecting calls using voice works very well. I travel often to California, where stricter cell phone laws go into effect in January 2017. I'll be glad to have this baby on my wrist so that I can avoid tickets with my Inspector Gadget gear!
6) I haven't had a chance to test the altimeter, but the speedometer and GPS work very well. I tested them with the free Speedometer app and the speed matched that on my car dashboard. I love hiking, so it'll be interesting to see how well the technology works and whether an app ecosystem can grow out of those features.
7) The screen looks really clear and bright. I have brightness set to 6 and the screen is perfectly readable indoors and in direct sunlight.
8) I also tried the Sleep As Android app to test the S3's biometric sensors. Except for a short period when my phone couldn't get data, the app was able to collect sleep-related data the whole night. I don't think that I will track my sleep with the watch every night because of its size, although I bought a replacement strap for it that is very supple and sleeping with it wasn't too uncomfortable.
9) The S3 can let you control your favorite music app on your phone (music is routed through your phone speakers) or you can listen to tracks that are on the watch itself (music is routed through the watch speakers or through attached bluetooth headphones). Check out Spotify. The S3 now has a native Spotify app that frees you from having to interact with your phone. If you setup WiFi access and log into Spotify Premium from your watch, you can stream music directly to it without having your phone with you or powered on. This feature shows how the S3 is increasingly becoming a dependable device in its own right.
Now onto the reasons why I gave it 4 stars:
a) Maybe it's the size of the rotating bezel in this larger watch face, but it feels loose. There is a slight wobble on the S2, but if you tap the rotating bezel on the S3, you can actually hear it sound as if it is loose. Maybe they can make it a bit tighter in the next model.
b) The S Voice assistant is very rudimentary. In the age of Siri, Alexa and even Cortana, Samsung needs to catch up quickly with integrating AI into such an otherwise feature-packed watch! What's the point of cramming in so much processing power if one is left with only a glorified phone dialer? SVoice needs to get smart.
A few things that improved my experience with the S3:
- I got a comfortable watch strap that is perforated for breathability. The watch is pretty large, so I tried to make wearing it as comfortable as possible. A comfortable strap made from stretchy material also helps the watch hug your wrist if you are sleeping with it without being uncomfortable. Biometric sensors on the watch work best if they are closest to your skin.
- Speaking of biometrics, give the Sleep As Android app a try if you are concerned about the quality of sleep. It collects a fair amount of data, but to me the most important one was the "deep sleep" periods.
- Spotify for S3 frees you up from using your phone, but you do have to log onto an available WiFi and also have the Spotify Premium to make your S3 fully independent.
Notice that I didn't complain about the absence of good apps. That's because a great app marketplace doesn't happen overnight. Apple has dominated that space, but the Samsung Gear S3 has plenty of features that can be used creatively. Spotify is an example of native apps that can become big hits. I have even heard that the video chip on it can drive a 720p display! Imagine being able to screencast pictures or even video from a watch some day!! (The S3, by the way, only allows you to synchronize pictures and songs at this time; not video.)
If I find more cool things to do with it, I will come back and provide an update. I hope you found this information useful.
With AOD (always all display) switched to ON and only Bluetooth connection ON, I got 2 full days on one charge. If you switch off AOD, you will get 4 days. I like watch faces a lot! They are beautiful and you can find thousand of them in the recently launched Samsung Gear app which you can download from Apple Store. I don't use and I don't need Samsung Pay functionality, so I don't bother in not having this in my watch.
Great watch in overall! Best smart watch as of today!
Many initial reviews showed concern for the size of the watch, thinking it was slightly large. Me being a smaller guy at 5'5" 130 pounds, I was worried this thing was going to be a bit overbearing on my smaller wrist. Thankfully, it wasn't. It was not larger than any of the G-Shock watches I own. With all the electronics packed inside, I was also worried the depth, or thickness of the face was going to be a bit much as well. This was not the case. It's not too heavy either. It's heavy enough to feel like a solid, well-made time piece, but light enough to easily forget you're wearing it.
Looks: This Frontier model definitely looks more rugged than the classic, especially with the bands it comes with, but even then, I still feel like it's beautiful enough to the point I wouldn't WANT to get too tough with it. It's rated to be able to take a beating, but the brushed metal is pretty enough to want to baby it like it's a $1000 piece of jewelry. The face has a lot of matte surfaces so it doesn't draw too much attention, but there are enough shiny accents that keep it looking sharp. In definitely a fan of the color scheme.
Setup was easy enough. If you just want to do a quick setup to go, you'll probably need 3 minutes, most of which is your phone pairing up with the watch. If you want to do a full setup of every feature, including any customizations, allot yourself about 30 minutes to play with it all.
This thing does everything I would want from a smart watch. It's quick and responsive, the interface is pretty simple, and you can add on whatever widgets you need to keep things quick and smooth.
Calls were clear on both ends, making hands free pretty literal. I was able to answer my phone, have a phone conversation, and hang up all while catching for my daughter (fast pitch softball pitcher). Mind you, I was catching with one hand and throwing the ball back with the other without skipping a beat to talk. The only way the person on the other end of the call could tell I was doing something was the loud smack he would hear from the ball hitting the glove literally 8 inches from the watch.
The interface with all the phone notifications (with any app) was pretty slick. The main notifications I received were from phone calls, emails, texts, and Snapchat. All notifications were nice to look at with response options available on the screen. If the watch doesn't have a compatible response, it will open the specific app on your phone as soon as you unlock your phone.
I mainly use this watch for text, call, email, Spotify, and snapchat. Snapchat is the only thing I couldn't do anything with directly from the watch. Altimeter and barometer are both accurate when comparing to external instruments.
Pedometer is also relatively accurate.
The heart rate monitor worked about 95% of the time. The 5% it didn't work was because mud got onto the sensor. After I cleaned it, it worked just fine.
AOD: Always On Display and the Auto- On (turns on when you turn your watch towards your face) both work well.
The bezel seems pretty solid. Very positive feedback and responsive. You’re probably thinking, why use the bezel when you have a touch screen? Well, if you’re trying to scroll through a long list of apps or something similar, the bezel will fly through the list pretty quickly vs swiping over and over… and over.
No there is no actual Spotify app built in like the Gear Fit 2. There is however an app that lets you open Spotify on your phone and lets you change playlists ($1.99 though, sorry folks). The rest you can control with the built-in music widget. You MIGHT have to set Spotify as the default music app on your phone. It will show the current song playing along with album artwork. You can pause/play, skip track, back track, and adjust volume from the music widget. So, short answer, yes Spotify is controlled through the watch, but cannot be played directly from the watch. I’m normally using headphones or a Bluetooth speaker anyways. Would you really want to play the music directly from your watch speakers? I don’t, but again, that’s my personal preference.
OK so this is a tough one. While it boasts up to 4 days, I only got 2 days from my initial charge (barely). But mind you, I spent a lot of time playing with it and I get an average of 45 notifications per hour. I also had my display set to AOD (Always On Display, it dims when not in use) but I turn off that setting before I sleep. I'm also up and using it until just after midnight. So, all things considered, it still lasted pretty long. If you toss it on a charger every night, it's a non-issue, but I like keep it on myself to track my sleep patterns.
Typing: you've got a few different options.
First, I do voice typing. It's quick and easy. Second, you can use the old T9 keyboard, which is still quick and easy. Third, you can draw each letter, which can be a bit time consuming. And fourth, you can scroll through the alphabet with the bezel (why would you do that? Remember rotary old rotary phones? It's kind of like that.) The first 2 are the best? But the drawing isn't too bad if you're bored.
Overall, I think it's a great product. People expect perfection, but that's just impossible. Is it pricey? Sure, the price should drop about 25% but it is what it is. Do I regret it? Nope.
