This smartwatch suits only for notifications. It lacks standalone functionality, gpx files supporting applications with road tracking possibility, google services, color display off settings and etc. You can create your own root on Endomondo, but don't have possibility to follow it on your Gear. Gear S3 Sport will lack this functionality either.
Samsung, enable these features on S Health, otherwise this watch does not differ much from simple smart bands.
whatsoever, 21 Sep 2017anyone got idea is it samsung gear s3 bluetooth version can make a call?yes, as long as its connected to your phone via bluetooth
Price further reductions to 220$ boxed. But a headache to continously connect both via Bluetooth and WiFi or mobile data. Waist of both batteries zero within a year. LTE version more economical, but need two numbers each, watch plus mobile.
whatsoever, 21 Sep 2017anyone got idea is it samsung gear s3 bluetooth version can make a call?Yes you can make & receive calls provided Bluetooth WiFi Data is Onn. Only problem is battery discharge in half day, on continuous connection.

1.5 SS 16 GB all specs pepped up, but see what price 550$> it's Sammy margin off profit 500% minimum
When 8s Tenzin 3 version updating,it's long overdue. Only today news that sports has already had it,now S3 turn. But price wise it's still expensive,than contemporaries.
I want a bigger screen minimum 1.5" in a body similar to current gen. Complete independence from the phone, bigger storage 8gb, bluetooth and ANT+ alone better health tracking accuracy. Swappable bands. Downloadable maps would be great for outdoors, Gear 4 announcements but not without these features.
All faces free, are boring, and buying suitable gives irritation. Why so much in store is for sale. Biggest problem is Bluetooth always on, verses battery drainage both sides. Unavoidable but cumbersome. LTE version not available anywhere in Dubai, official banned. Pathetic.
Yeasin , 11 Jul 2017Plz some one tell me about how is it battery life . I'm going to buy this device. Battery life using GPS to sport a couple of hours, last normally one and a half days,
with heartbeat always on and really using the watch with apps and Bluetooth always connected to mobile phone....
It's with regret that no system update nor battery life extended. You loose both batteries simaltaneously cell through Bluetooth and watch through 24hr connection, one day both only, needs recharge. 300$ is no joke for watch, can get three of CAT original one's.
Yeasin , 11 Jul 2017Plz some one tell me about how is it battery life . I'm going to buy this device. Battery is both sides, cell plus watch, both expire with a day, if connected 24hrs. LTE is mostly banned in countries, so if available is better only single battery needed, no Bluetooth connection.
Plz some one tell me about how is it battery life . I'm going to buy this device.

I got this to replace my lg g watch r and its great and it works perfectly paired with my LG G5 and I can make calls from the watch and also reply to texts also using the watch to,it works great and I would definitely recommend it
The Gear s3 is the best smartwatch in the market right now. I've owned it for about 2 months now. It has a flawless design which allows it to look like a classy "James Bond" watch. The only not-so-good things about this watch are it's compatibility with iOS devices, the speaker not being loud enough to use as a phone speaker while driving, and the 4gb storage. Everything else about this watch is excellent. I wish they would've incorporated Google Now in to the watch for added functionality, but it's not a deal breaker (for me). I would recommend this watch for anyone who will pair it to an android device. For iOS, you can only read notifications, text messages, and attend calls. You can't reply to text messages using the watch on iOS. SHealth functionality is also limited. Overall, it's the perfect watch to wear to a gala, or rock climbing!
