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 Superb product Please create a feature to display the ongoing average heart rate during a training session. I use this device as my normal watch, training monitor and sleep monitor all the time. It's the Swiss army knife of digital devices in it's field. Rather stylish and my go-to wrist based device. I've been using it for a year or so. Best thing ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great product I absolutely love my Gear S3 Frontier. It is easy to use and caters for everything I need. This is not your typical sports watch, but performs the functions very well. I do a lot of running and cycling and works perfectly well with those activities. It integrates well to Samsung Health with great summary pages on activities. S health in turn connects to Discovery Vitality which is also great. Good job Samsung. Been using this device for 8 months and still very much in love

Rated 1 out of 5 by from patheric aftermarket service The back screen for heart rate monitor cracked for no reason and the service centers say they do not repair or replace this glass and I need to purchase a new device. Steer clear if you expect after market support

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Heart Rate Monitor does not work efficiently Had the S3 Frontier since Oct 2017. Nice watch except the Heart Rate Monitor does not work. Even whilst I was in Seoul, Korea, during December I went to the Samsung shop for a hopeful fix. No luck, all they said was to wait for the software upgrade at the end of Jan 2018. Well, here it is at the end of April and the HRM still sucks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true extension of your phone This watch is the only watch you will ever need. With customizable face, it allows a face for every occasion. The features on the watch are fantastic, hardly needing to use your phone again. Its designed so well that it looks great no matter what you are doing, being active, smart function, sleeping or at a party. You can shower with it and take it every where with you. Its also a great size compared to the Gear S2, and fits so comfortably. And with everything the watch is constantly tracking, you always know where you are in your day and how much you still need to do. Would most certainly recommend this as the best smart watch there is out there!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic display The display is bright and legible in direct sunlight. The 3 mechanical controls plus the touch controls work perfectly. The watch is comfortable to wear all day and even to sleep with if you want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gear S3 Feel free to visit my YouTube channel @MobiWan2015 where I review this device. Genuinely there is no buyer's remorse 3 months later. Its effective, easy to use, gorgeous and stable. Battery usage lasts for two days sometimes a little more depending on usage and I enjoy the fact that I can attach any third party strap to the device. Its a great looking and functional device by Samsung and best of all, it works with any Android device. Give it a shot. You will not regret it.
