A forward-thinking choice that offers a touch of luxury.


The Gear S3 sets you free from your phone in the most natural way. Turn the rotating bezel menu to respond to calls, to read messages, or to go to the app you need.

Just twist the bezel

Answer a call, turn up the volume or turn off the alarm. Turn the bezel to scroll through apps, messages and long text. It couldn't be easier to do what you want and get to what you want.

Go for a run, a round of golf or go exploring on your bike. Gear S3 has a built-in GPS that gives you the freedom to explore. And with its long-lasting battery, you'll only need to set it down for a charge every few days.

Stay on the map

You can check the distance you've covered or the trail you need to take. You're able to track your progress from your daily runs or use Golf Navi Global to track your score on the green. The GPS on the Gear S3 takes care of it all.
