I love my Gear S2 and I am considering the Gear S3. I do have a problem with Tizen though. Although it's a great operating system, I think Samsung should have gone the Android route. I don't understand the commitment to Tizen OS. The number and quality of available apps is very limited and this troubles me. I see app after app arriving on the market for Android wear and the only thing I see for the Gear S2 (with any frequency) are watch faces. I want more apps not more watch faces. This is frustrating.
Hands down Samsung makes the best looking smartwatches. The rotating bezel is pure genius too. The one thing that surprised me the most though is how much nicer Samsung's software was to use than Google's version.
I like Samsung and this watch, but I don't like Tizen!
That's great if this watch can run Android.
I have seen reports of the gear s3 being something lik3 400 great british pounds/ euros (I can't remeber which one, and I can't find the article right now), but if Samsung expects to increase the numbers sold, I can't imagine that the price will jump that significantly. I would expect it to be more expensive than the s2, but not by too much if they are expecting to sell 60% more

Again- this smartwatch category is total BS. The nice, slim, elegant and functional smart-bands have a future. though(not only as fitness trackers)
But otherwise Samsung make the best smartwatches . Period.
And of course Apple will sell more than Samsung, because they have the logo-BS-buyers in their cote.(still)

Do you know since how many years Samsung make smartwatches? Even the first Gear came whole year before first Apple Watch.
How could Apple start it?? Ignorant.

No fanboy, 01 Oct 2016It's a great smartwatch but i think it's overpricedYeah, I understand that smartwatches are aimed at a small niche market of rich people atm, but it's still too expensive. Normal expensive would be around 250-300 imo. Especially as the market grows to the point they expect 60% more sales.
