Android Wear, beware, this is the smartwatch to beat

The Gear S3 delivers in both hardware and software, and to us is the smartwatch to get if you're an Android user. There's that solid metal chassis with meticulous fine details, hardy build and water-resistance, great clicky buttons and a smooth rotating bezel that's matched with a smooth-to-use operating system. The straps are standard 22mm ones too, for added convenience.

A good smartwatch, but probably not enough to win over smartwatch skeptics

from Android Police

I'm still not convinced that a smartwatch is something most people need. It's still a novelty for people who are very into technology and gadgetry.

I'm still not convinced that a smartwatch is something most people need. It's still a novelty for people who are very into technology and gadgetry. Even among smartwatch fans, the $350 Gear S3 will be a tough sell. However, you do get a very nice smartwatch for that price. The build quality is excellent, the screen is gorgeous, and the bezel navigation is intuitive. I wish it was a bit smaller like the last gen version, but it's not outlandishly big for a smartwatch (or a regular watch).

A luxurious smartwatch with great fitness features and excellent battery life

The Gear S3 does a good job of basic smartwatch duties. Notifications are handled elegantly, and the twisty interface is a delight to use. The fitness side of things is particularly impressive too. Unless you’re a hardcore swimmer, you’ll find everything here you need to keep motivated and track your progress.

The best Apple Watch alternative for Android phone owners

The fitness side of things is particularly impressive, offering most of the tools (aside from swim tracking) that the modern fitness fanatic needs to log exercise and keep motivated. And the notifications side of things works just as well, a couple of niggles aside, as it does on Android Wear smartwatches. The big bonus, though, is that the Samsung Gear S3 combines all of those things with superb battery life and luxurious high-end design.

Probably the best user interface on a modern wearable

Samsung has done a very good job in crafting a powerful smartwatch in the Gear S3. The device pack every possible feature and actually delivers on Samsung's promises. The Frontier and Classic styles give people two basic form factors to choose from, and the ecosystem of straps allows for some personalization of the watch. The only negative aspect of the design is the sheer size, which may be too large for people with small or slim wrists. The screen and battery life are great, and the watch can certainly take some punishment. I wish S Voice were better.

At first glance, both Gear S3 models put on a good show thanks to the combination of its fitness features like on the Gear Fit2 and smartwatch functions as on the Gear S2, wrapped up in one single device. The Gear S3 has allowed Samsung to further expand their portfolio, especially for the male target group. They now have a complete lineup of wearables for a variety of users.

A luxury purchase rather than essential gadget

from Mirror

If you're looking solely for a fitness tool (the biggest draw for wearables) then I'd recommend foregoing the Gear S3 in favour of a cheaper Fitbit or more specialised Garmin wearable. Similarly, if you're put off by size and weight you might want to look elsewhere - this is a hefty bit of kit.&n... More

If you're looking solely for a fitness tool (the biggest draw for wearables) then I'd recommend foregoing the Gear S3 in favour of a cheaper Fitbit or more specialised Garmin wearable. Similarly, if you're put off by size and weight you might want to look elsewhere - this is a hefty bit of kit. But if you're an Android user and you want the best-looking, most highly featured smartwatch then this is the one for you. Although, be prepared to sign up for all Samsung's services to get the best out of it.

Bigger doesn't always equal better

The Gear S3 is destined to divide. After delivering us its best-ever smartwatch with the Gear S2, it has sacrificed that sleek design to cram in more features. That bigger body has delivered better battery life, GPS and a screen where Tizen can really shine. It’s not quite the fantastic fitness tracker/sports watch replacement we’d hoped for and it’s not quite the finished article as a smartwatch either. But if you’re an Android or Samsung phone owner, this is about as good it gets right now. Even if there is still room for improvement.

The best smartwatch an Android owner can buy

Should you buy it? Yes. If you have $350, are in the market for a smartwatch, and own an Android phone — particularly a Samsung phone — the Gear S3 is the best choice. It has two great designs, swappable bands, GPS, an LTE model, 4GB of internal storage, and you can use Samsung P... More

Should you buy it? Yes. If you have $350, are in the market for a smartwatch, and own an Android phone — particularly a Samsung phone — the Gear S3 is the best choice. It has two great designs, swappable bands, GPS, an LTE model, 4GB of internal storage, and you can use Samsung Pay at most retailers. You may want to test out the device at a retailer to make sure it doesn’t look too awkward on your wrists. though.

All-in on a 'more is more' strategy

Samsung has in many ways doubled down on a feature-packed strategy with its wearables, making the Gear S3 the largest and most powerful smartwatch available today. It has a bigger screen, standalone software and many more features than you can get from the competition, including the same full GPS support, heart rate and activity tracking you find in its fitness-focused Gear Fit 2. The problem is that means the Gear S3 is too big for many wrists, adding to the fact that it has a bulky and male-focused design that's going to put off many potential buyers.
