Samsung smartwatches are always bigger in the market. And this our latest review on the Samsung Gear S3. One thing that needs to be mentioned here is the Gear S3 is actually not going to replace the S2 and S3 is running alongside S2.
There are two versions of the Samsung Gear S3 one is the classic edition and the frontier addition both of which have the few subtle changes in their looks and feel but for the most part have the look of the Gear S2 classic with the ridged rotating clicking bezel that still feels really nice to rotate around and it’s nice to have a tactile way of doing input aside from the touch screen.
To differentiate between the two versions of the Gear S3 the classic basically has the look of a typical fashion metal watch and the Gear S3 frontier is supposed to be a little bit more recognized. It has a matte feel to the metal and has the flat buttons on the side as supposed to be the pop out on the Gear S3 classic.
The bezel wraps around the 1.3 inches super AMOLED display that is scratch resistant as it is using a Gorilla Glass SR+. And the screen is mostly the reason why this watch is a little bit bigger than the Gear S2.
The Samsung Gear3 is a Tizen-Based Wearable OS 2.3.2. It bears a chipset of Exynos 7270, Dual 1.0GHz Supports LTE with Embedded SIM.
Can be connected to BT: BT4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n, NFC, MST, and GPS/Glonass. LTE: BT4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n, NFC, MST, A-GPS/Glonass. The smartwatch is a Water and dust with IP 68 + MIL-STD-810G.
As mentioned before the bezel that rotates and has a very audible and very tactile click to it. It’s still very nice to use but it can also be used for a number of different other functions now when calls come into the watch and yes you can take and make calls using the Samsung Gear S3.
You would be able to reject or accept the calls simply by rotating it clockwise or counter-clockwise and the same can be said for other notifications and different parts of the watch where you need to action upon them. It’s certainly a large watch, to anybody looking for anything smaller than this will probably be not looking into the Gear S3 and I too feel it is a little bulkier on my wrist.
The entire body is IP certified water and dust resistance with some extra military grade protection to give it a boost in regularization. Anybody can use the regular 22-millimeter watch straps in order to change the look of it.
So overall the Samsung Gear S3 brings a lot from the previous gear versions. And the Gear S3 is supposed to be in addition to the line rather than replacing it. And the Gear S3 doesn’t fall behind in the capabilities. It is having Samsung pay and also the ability to use regular watch straps could make the Gear S3 a little bit more appealing but with its size, it is a No-No for many but happy that Gear S2 is available. The price of the smartwatch is around Rs 23000/-
