amazon Samsung Gear S3 Frontier reviews
Gear S3 is equipped with a Gorilla Glass SR +, claimed by the manufacturer to be more difficult to break by 70 percent and up to 20 percent more sun visibility. All Samsung Gear S3 Frontier chassis is made of stainless steel, with rubberized cord. It has the advantage over leather straps that can withstand the weather and water very well, no need to take care as tight as the leather strap.
The Gear S3 is dust and water resistant to IP68 and can withstand the heat, cold, pressure, shock and vibration of the MIL-STD 810G military standard. It can be said that this is similar to the Casio G-Shock in the smartwatch.
The Gear S3’s rubber cords have a standard width of 22 mm, so users can replace the watch straps on their own accord. At the same time, wire replacement can be made easily by a small pin on the wire end.
On this Gear S3, Samsung equipped two physical buttons and a rotating benzel ring on the watch face. The benzel wheel has a very “twisted” feel and it emits a slight click of a twist to increase the user feedback. The back of the Gear S3 is a heart rate sensor.
The Gear S3 is equipped with a 1.33-inch Super AMOLED 360 x 360 display with excellent display in the sun, and the Always-On feature keeps the watch face off (so many people mistakenly think this is mechanical watches. The 380 mAh battery that Samsung said lasted for 3-4 days with average frequency. It has a 1GHz dual-core Exynos processor and 768MB of RAM.
Gear S3 runs the Tizen operating system which takes full advantage of the control of the benzel ring. Users simply rotate clockwise to display all notifications, and rotate in the opposite direction to display individual widgets. In general, the interface of Gear S3 with Tizen is simple and easy to use.
On the other hand, Gear S3 has the basic features of a smart watch such as heart rate meter, message display, distance calculation, calorie consumption, call making and rejecting, etc. As Samsung has improved it is now possible. Besides attractive features like drawing on the screen to execute text, accepting or rejecting calls by rotating the benzel ring.
One feature I like is that the S Voice recognizes the voice and converts it into a command for the watch. We can call or send voice messages (English), but the processing speed of the statement is still not fast than the current smartphone.

Feel the actual use
First of all, my feeling is how big is this watch ?! With a person wearing a 39mm and 7mm-thick watch like me, the size of the Gear S3 made me feel Shocked. It looks very large and not very harmonious with the little wrist, I think the manufacturer has deliberately done so to look like a high-end mechanical watch. Actually, the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier looks like an expensive Swiss watch. When I wear it, many people have asked me what firm of the watch and they were surprised that this is just a smartwatch from Samsung.
I’m not happy with the S3 rubber band, it’s not as soft as the Apple Watch rubber strap. The string for me was still hard and thick, it was not comfortable on my wrist. However, for those with large wrists, they say nothing is uncomfortable. Perhaps this is the personal feeling of each person. One good point is that the user can manually replace the wire easily through a small pin on the hinge.
Gear S3 is like any other smartwatch, I keep checking messages, notifications, emails, calls (and making calls through the mic and the speakers on the watch), heart rate……. Everything was running smooth, nothing to complain, especially the external speakers of the Gear S3 volume is very loud and clear. An excellent point on the Gear S3 is that the rotating benzel wheel is very smooth and its design resembles expensive watches, such as the Rolex Submariner.
The screen quality and display of the Gear S3 is also very praiseworthy. When using the three-day “boldly” (go skiing, mountain climbing, swimming, camping), the Gear S3 screen has absolutely no scratches, and the quality of display in the sun. Its excellent, the icons, announcements or words on the Gear S3 are very clear.
However, a phone with a hand up feature displays the clock and it does not work smoothly, about 30% of the time I held my wrist on the watch did not automatically turn on the watch screen. Hopefully Samsung will have a fix for the software in the future.
The use of Gear S3 for sports exercise is also an enjoyable experience. It measures the amount of calories burned precisely when compared to the calories measured by the treadmill, and I can easily transfer the song to the gym with this watch. But it makes me feel good in one hand.
The S3’s battery pack is quite impressive as it allows me to spend more than 2 days connecting to the phone continuously and using very high frequency and automatic brightness control.
With the Gear S3, Samsung has successfully upgraded its smartwatch to a high quality jewelry. Retaining the old strength of the previous generation, the manufacturer has improved and upgraded the small features for their smart phones. This is a very worthwhile consideration for those who own Samsung smartphones, but it will not suit anyone with a small wrist.
