Anyone else buy this watch coming from an older Samsung watch? I have the Gear Sport...for some reason the Galaxy Watch 3 doesnt count the number of floors you've climbed like the Gear Sport. Anyone else have this issue?
I was expecting more from Samsung in the galaxy watch 3, because they can do something that com peat Huawei Gt 2 , batery life is as beefore some changes in the look of the watch and it is 8 GB hard disk, and they added the heart beat rate , Samsung please we want more,
CptPower, 24 Aug 2020Its funny to see when any casual watches for 5-10 bucks like casio brand for example have much... moreThanks scoop. That's like saying a Nissan micra has better fuel economy and more seats than an F1 car.

Huawei Watch GT 2 is best watch for money on market ,battery is outstanding and garmin is really great
RamanD, 24 Aug 2020Looks really good but more costly than I anticipated. Perhaps they can do better in the batter... moreThey have to do better in the CPU-department aswell. For how long can they offer budget-CPU on the European market while having the best CPU:s from Qualcomm on US and Asian market? Discriminating to say the least.
I wonder if the Exynos processor in the smartphone would work well enough as the smartphones seem to have so much issues.

How come Samsung never make phones or smartwatches with better batterylife? It's 2020 not 2010.
Galaxy Watch 3 is a copy of Active 2. End of story.
Once the active 2 receives the update of Tizen 5.5 it's all the same.
I own an Active 2 and I use it daily for about 1 year. I have to say I am not impressed at all.
It happen a doesn times to tell me I reached my goals while watching TV or using the laptop. Promised ECG feature still missing and will be missing for the foreseeable future, probably for Watch 3 as well. Missing compass makes it useless for hiking and orientation. Round form is sleek and different from Apple's but a very poor choice to display digital content. 4GB is almost equal to zero considering the OS uses most of this space. With Watch 3 being almost a copy, I cannot say I would recommend it. Unfortunately with all its downsides the Apple Watch is the only decent smart watch in the market for a while now and the only competition it gets is from the fact that it doesnt pair with Android devices.
Leather band? Why, because Samsung thinks that it adds class, kind of like advertising "real leather"...?
Leather is bad on a watch to run with, it looks kind of old, and Samsung just lost all the vegans.
Oh, and it's way overpriced. This is Apple territory and this watch is no Apple Watch.
Same internals as Active 2? Just paying higher for the rotating bezel and 4 gb extra memory. No sir i will keep the ACTAIVE 2. Samsung trying to ripoff its customers!
pt020, 22 Aug 2020The Samsung Gear Frontier is a much better looking watch... This one looks cheap quality. Wi... moreI've had the Gear 3 Frontier for a little over 2 years. Still works perfectly. Just looks alone, I don't care for the buttons sticking out the side of the new one, as opposed to the almost flush buttons on the Frontier. Unless they refresh the Frontier to look more like what it is now, I'll pass and just stick a new battery in it, when needed.
Why not compare such watch to Garmin Venu for example, some Fitbit watches, etc?
I have an Watch Active; by far the most useful gadget i've had for years, worth every euro i've spent. Track HR while training and the whole day, recording of training sessions for comparison and analysis, track sleep quality, smartphone notifications . It's a work in progress but the potential is huge, much more than the smartphone itself.
Thanks for the review, much more interesting than any smartphone review.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2020The biggest problem with this watch is that it's FUGLY. There, I said it ! Nice try
