Samsung Gear S3 Frontier :: Return to sender

by Volker Weber


Both the Gear S3 and S2 are on their way back to Samsung. No editor-refuses-to-give-it-back award. But a simple recommendation:

If you have an iPhone, get an Apple Watch. If you don't have an iPhone, get the Gear S3. It's really good. And don't bother with the S2. The S3 is much better. More battery, more memory, better hardware. And a final plus: standard 22mm bands. Customize with any 3rd party watch band.

None of the Android Wear watches can hold a candle to the Gear S3. Terrible UX and terrible battery life. On top of that I find them ugly. And they are failing. Moto is getting out of the market.

I still feel no need for a smartwatch at all.

In that case, don't buy a smartwatch. 100% savings.

I like the S3 very much (special thanks to Volker!), the samsung health app is really great (even on the Priv) and i haven´t thought that it is so much fun and motivation to catch all the awards... :-)
