TS, 02 Nov 2016P.C. Richards & Son has pre-order for the Gear S3 and say release date is Nov 11!It's now saying no longer available for purchase.
AnonD-605480, 02 Nov 2016Its not letting you Preorder is just says coming soonBest Buy had the pre-order option yesterday, and I was able to place one. It's gone now today, but they still show my order. So perhaps they don't know how many units they will get and don't want to oversell, or maybe they already sold out of the pre-order stock. UK stock went really fast too.

Its funny how subjective looks are - I personally think the S3 Frontier is the best looking Smartwatch thus far made, easily besting the Huawei, Urbane or Moto 360 (and I own all three so not an AndWear hater by any means!). In fact, I think the Gear S3 Classic and the LG Urbane are near twins! I do wish Android Wear devices had the awesome rotating bezel, did Samsung patent it? Because that nifty little invention should be on every round Smartwatch. Hope to have the Frontier as soon as available and will do a head to head comparison of Tizen to Android Wear 1.5 and 2.0 DP3!
It's also available for pre-order in UAE (www.axiomtelecom.com).
It costs AED 1,399 (~ USD 380), and it comes with green and red straps for free only for pre-orders. They also claim that the two straps are valued at AED 300 (~ USD 82).
Get the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition instead. Lower price, better and larger screen (1.4" OLED which sits closer to the top glass), much better looks, mobile data support out of the box with standard nano-SIM which works in almost all countries, 50% larger 570mAh battery (lasts me 4 days with mobile data on !).
Well. They look both UGLY and overpriced.
what we need is a moto 360, but 50% more thin.
