Samsung Gear S3 Classic Review

One of the main things mentioned while reading Samsung Gear S3 reviews from trusted users is it is classy, but remains chunky when worn. The Gear S3 you can buy in two different models the Classic and the Frontier with no difference in the functionality. However, with the chunky design that consumers do not like is what do they have to say about the other features in this smartwatch.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • The majority of the athletes mentioned that Samsung has improved the bezel and rotating the watch is not as slippery as in the previous S2 model. The great thing is your fingers do not obstruct the screen when used.
  • Another highlighted feature most sports users loved is the magnets in the bezel and gives a tactile feel when jumping between the screen and menu.
  • One professional trainer loves the new built-in speaker to actually receive calls and listen to music connected via Bluetooth
  • Most of the consumers like the always-on display feature no matter what watch face you use, but does affect the battery life.
  • The positive is that the watch automatically keeps track of different activities from counting your steps to sleep patterns and welcomed by all sports enthusiasts.
  • While gym participants love the exercise tracking of their bodyweight movements.
  • Runners found the use of the GPS tracking outstanding as it accurately keeps track of their distance and speed. Even cyclists found this feature helpful.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Joggers and runners found the watch heavy on the wrist while running as it does weigh 63g.
  • The biggest complaint different sports users had with the watch, is the lack of apps such as Google Maps and Citymapper.
  • The other concern is that you need to keep the watch connected to Wi-Fi to be able to listen to music from your smartphone, as it has no offline playlist.


If you want a refined version of the S2, the Gear S3 is the one to buy. The large display and classy style are outstanding, but it does have a hefty weight. The smartwatch is a multi-sportswear for entry-level health fanatics to professionals.
