A beautifully engineered gadget that makes other smartwatches look like the toys of yesteryear.

The Mobile Indian

Great build quality, impressive display

from The Mobile Indian
Samsung Galaxy Gear S3 is an interesting piece of hardware overall and is yet another attempt of being the best in the town. However, for the price tag of Rs 28,500, the smartwatch is likely to find it hard to attract people. While the hardware on the Gear S3 shines, the lack of enough apps on Tizen OS makes it a tough choice for consumers. If you ask me, I would not buy the Gear S3 for that price and neither would I recommend it to anyone. The Gear S3, no doubt, is an amazing accessory for your device but surely not a necessity...

A lot more features but battery is still a pain point

from The Indian Express
Samsung Gear S3 has a lot of features going for it. The Watch has more functionality, fitness bit works well and the multiple options in this category should appeal to most people. It is also still a really simple watch to use. But the app functionality is far from perfect, and battery is still a pain point... Full review

Samsung tries to throw it all on a watch, but it doesn't all stick

from Cnet
Samsung's watch survives, for now, as one of the better options for Android phone users... Full review

Android Wear, beware, this is the smartwatch to beat

from Pocket-lint
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... Full review

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. 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)... Full review

A luxurious smartwatch with great fitness features and excellent battery life

from Expert Reviews
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... Full review

The best Apple Watch alternative for Android phone owners

from Alphr
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

from Phone Scoop
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... Full review
AndroidPIT

The best of both worlds

from AndroidPIT
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... Full review
Mirror

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. 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... Full review
