The Wirecutter

Best for Samsung phones

from The Wirecutter

Long battery life, a useful turning bezel, and a decent fitness system make the S3 worth considering if you own a Samsung phone―and optional built-in LTE means you can leave your phone at home.

The best smartwatch for your Android phone

from TechRadar

Bigger, bolder and more feature-rich than ever, this is a brilliant smartwatch in many ways. It just depends on whether you actually want a digital timepiece - and if you're prepared to pay handsomely for the privilege.

An interesting product

from NDTV

Overall, the Gear S3 is a pretty impressive smartwatch, but it's mainly for Android users, and iOS compatibility should be seen as just a bonus. We hope that Samsung makes its next model slimmer. We also hope that more apps are added to the Tizen ecosystem, but that will only happen if the Gear S3 sells well. Samsung needs to identify its target audience and market this watch well, because a lot of people seem to have decided that they don't need a smartwatch at all.

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.

Fone Arena

Brilliant display, god design and build quality

from Fone Arena

Overall the Samsung Gear S3 is a good upgrade to the Gear S2. It has solid build quality, premium design that makes it looks just like a luxury watch, has a lot of features and connectivity options and finally good battery life. It is a bit disappointing that there is no option for women since it is a huge watch that will not fit most women.

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.

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

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

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.

Android Police

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).

Expert Reviews

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.
