Swap bands out for a change

Dress up, dress down or go all out with a watch band of your choice. And since the Gear S3 is compatible with standard 22 mm bands, lack of choice is not an option.

Arik Levy swap bands

Inspired by the Gear S3's ability to adapt to the user, artist and industrial designer Arik Levy created watch faces and bands that bring art and technology together. Infused with elements from his existing artwork, the watch faces are designed to move and flow with you. The bands make a striking statement with their singular aesthetic.

Calls from your wrist

You can take and make calls with its built-in speaker. You can also check voice messages and hear the alarms you set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing else compares This is really the best smart watch by far. Well done Samsung and thank you for all your excellent products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finest smartwatch. Its a very fine wrist jewel which is also a smartwatch. Its tech doesn't get in the way of the function. Its more suited to a active lifestyle as it tries to track everything. The battery is amazing, I have seen three days between charges before dropping below 20. I have given up on charging it fully, just a few minutes in the morning when I dress / shower and its good for two days. ( I try to charge it like that to keep it in the best battery cycle range of 20 - 80 ) I would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent stable smartwatch for the Samsung family Great features and design. Responsive and bezel control is very usable. Works best with Samsung phones and fewer customization options than Android Wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is no better smart watch Getting the Gear S3 Classic has changed my world. The vast functionality is mind blowing and that bezel makes navigating through the app's a breeze. The set up is easy, I have had no issues and the watch doesnt leave my wrist.The style of the watch is first class, from dressing it up with a business suit or down when working out, by simply changing the straps and face it suits every environment.
