It uses the onboard speaker and mic for the call so no searching for my phone in my back just tell it to call whoever !
should I buy this watch?? help me guys I need advice for the best watch to buy I don't want to waste me money
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2016The Garmin has no 3G/LTE connectivity.I couldn't agree more with your comment about Danieel's silly & pretentious comment. I have used Garmin products in the past and frankly they are extremely difficult to use (seemingly designed by software engineers rather than user interface experts). Having a Samsung S2 myself for over a year the idea that it is a toy is just plain daft. Dannieel should grow a bit and stop being just a Garmin fanboy.....

If I purchase a Gear 3 Frontier with LTE (esim technology) from AT&T or TMobile, will it be compatible with the Verizon network (unlocked) when they support it in the future? Or is the esim technology specific (locked) to each carrier?

Claiming you'd buy a sophisticated Garmin watch over a kiddy's toy Android smartwatch that only has a percentage of the capabilities is pretentious. Each watch has it's own specific usage, so unless you're trying to compare the GPS functionality of the two, your comment adds nothing to furtherment of technology for the better.
I dont know why big companies like samsung and apple humiliates themselves with these kids toys ... i would never buy one of these pricey toys instead i would buy a real smart watch and i mean Garmin Fenix 3 HR by that .
I do wish though that watches would raise their storage to 8 GB, 4 is just laughable.
Bisdak, 05 Nov 2016what is E-Sim? e-sim (electronic sim-card) You don´t Need anymore a sim-card. The Provider of your sim-card can actived the e-sim-function (if there Support e-sim!) so that you can do phonecalls over your watch without cellphone.
Can the gear s3 Frontier (non Lte) recieve calls directly on watch when connected through Bluetooth to phone?
Will the watch recieve all notifications that the phone is recieving when its in stand alone?
In other words, will I be able to leave my phone at home, and still get Whatsapp messages displayed on my watch when Im out running?
I find it extremely frustrating that there is NO communication from Samsung on the Gear S3s release in Australia. Although I'm not fussed about LTE, I don't want to buy a Gear S2 over a Gear S3. I've had the Apple Watch and didn't like it, and I don't want to wait until Google release theirs next year. Any inside knowledge would be appreciated......
