The gps in this watch is horrible. Can't lock the gps although it was outside on a open space area. Waited for hours , it won't detect and locked the satellite.

Loved my s2 so moved up to s3 frontier....initially very happy but then had a software update and sensors died.on me....had it sent to.glasgow.samsung reoaur centre to be told it would cost more than £140 to repair.......more than £140 to repair a problem a software update caused......samsung have not.offered any support or acceoted the problem was caused by them and since its out of warranty 8ts pay the cash or have a heavy digital watch.......or trade it for something....maybe Huawei, apple or another brand....your loss samsung....very very poor customer care.
Been using this watch for almost 3 years now and I couldn’t be more happier. Never had a problem with mine whatsoever. Haven’t even had to change the battery either. Still as snappy as the day i bought it. I recommend this watch to anyone interested in getting into the nitty gritty smart watch game.

The display has bright vertical strips of about 3 mm. Still work well but display is simply not presentable. Only lasted for 15 months.
Jerzy, 04 Dec 2020Hi, I got a problem with Galaxy Gear S3 Frontier - a continuous use of the heart monitor burn... moreIt's weird such a thing happend because such a small lazer needs days to accually burn your skin and if the lazer would non stop be on your battery wouldn't last 3 hours so for lazers of this kind it's pretty much impossible to do damage
I got a problem with Galaxy Gear S3 Frontier - a continuous use of the heart monitor burned a square hole in my skin 2-3 mm deep (1mm x 2mm x 3mm) - it was a slow roast so no bleeding. I have noticed it cose of a pinching pain on the wrist. It cured itself after 2 weeks with a little scar remained (just to scare Samsung !!!).
I wrote Samsung a message but nobody answered. Since I have covered the sensors (lenses) with a permanent ink pen, switch off the heart app, otherwise happy with the watch.
I have just bought Samsung Watch (46) as a Xmass20 gift to myself (sale !) as it has an imbedded eSIM - but the very first thing was to switch off a heart app and to cover bottom lenses of the watch with permanent ink and a little round sticker to prevent any burns/pain.
There are many similar 'Galaxy' complaints on the net !!!
I did not searched other manufacturers/brands for a similar problem - but I thing it is common as the sensing laser technology is the same/similar.
Perhaps not everybody is reacting in such a sensitive way - although few is enough.
The puzzling question is why Samsung with all its huge research budget did not do anything to fix the problem they are aware off for long time by now.
Is there anyone to experience the same with an Apple Watch ?????
Anyone having a problem with back button not responding? if u have can u share here how to fix it? my gear this past 1-2 weeks have this problem. sometimes the back button work sometimes not. now it wouldnt work at all, home button work just fine tho. Im not ready to let go this watch yet or upgrade to galaxy watch 3, battery still work great. if anyone have any idea what may cause this problem it would be great if u can share it here, Thank you.
Great watch, all praise, I haven't changed its battery yet, and it can last up to 2 days of use, I don't immerse it in water.
No one is going to talk about this watch being a laggy piece of garbage?? It has 768 MB RAM and Huawei watch has 32 MB RAM. Uncomparable.
I was looking for a water resistant smartwatch to wear it during windsurfing and sailing, but I don´t really think that the IP68 certification matches my needs. So I´ve bouhgt a Suunto Ambit 3 and a Garmin Fenix 3 watches for watersports and wear this Samsung only casually. In winter I apply 9H glas foil, in summer a non reflective on it to protect the screen. The battery isn´t as it used to be, but it´s totally normal. The bezel started to get loose, so I got piece of thread and bounded underneat it, now it´s fine again. The original bands are too thin for me, bought regular 22mm silicone bands, looks much better. Never had to get it repaired, I hope it stays like this and works for a couple of years more. I recommend this watch for everyone. Still a good looking smartwatch for everyday purposes.
After use for 30 months the Frontier Gear 3 is unusable/out of commission. The battery has inexplicably swollen and the main board shorted. It has never been in a rain shower let alone water. Repair cost is 50% of new item cost. Once an exciting bit of tech; now a brick. NOT a smart buy.
