Can anyone using a Gear S3 with an iPhone tell me how you upgrade the Tizen software? Samsung have released a fix for the battery issue but the Gear S app for iOS has no Tizen upgrade option unlike the superior Android app.
I'm Waiting the gear s4 . They will resolve All previous bugs , and customers complaints
Carefull not to try battery saving mode in tizen 3 os, you will stuck cannot back again.
Oflife, 01 Dec 2017We have two of these in the family and live them.

You just need to connect using your Samsung account.
We have two of these in the family and live them. But why does the watch use Bluetooth and not WiFi to connect with the phone? Soon as you walk into another room away from your phone it loses connection, defeating the object of having a smart watch.
do not get it wet. the warranty says good to 5 feet for 30 minutes. I wore it in the pool by mistake for 10 minutes in 6 inches of water and it would not turn on again. sent it back to Samsung and they returned it to me saying it was wet and not repairable. called and explained to them what had happened and they said whatever the technician said in his note when it was returned to me was all that i could expect from them. Their Warranty is obviously a lie and they will not stand behind their product.
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.
