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 review: Now only £230


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 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


If the ideal smartwatch is one that lets you leave your phone in your pocket — or at home — and still be just as connected, then the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier succeeds more than any other smartwatch, and yet still falls short in some critical areas.

Handsome and durable design ; Built-in LTE ; GPS ; Samsung Pay ; Good voice control

Very limited app selection ; Heavy

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.

Samsung Gear S3 Review


One of the best models out there, though it loses some functionality with non-Samsung phones

Easy to use, great display, best variety of trackable workouts

Slow to charge, limited app compatibility

The is an overall strong performing model with an impeccable set of fitness tracking attributes, making its Editors' Choice award very much well deserved. However, we would only recommend this to Samsung phone users, even though it is compatible with...

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.
