Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Review – (Truthful & unsponsored )

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Review

Updated review after 1 year of usage (below)

Since Nike Band was released on February 22, 2012, I am connected to my Health gadgets. After Nike I moved to Fitbit, then in later 2013 back to Samsung with the original Galaxy Gear watch. After that, I had all the versions of Microsoft Band and when they were discontinued I moved back to Samsung with the Gear 3 in November 2016.

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

It has what every smartwatch should have, GPS, WI-FI, large screen, changeable writs bands, extremely good battery life. Samsung is using Tizen OS, which leaves you fewer apps but again not a big deal.

Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Design & Spaces

  • 1.3-inch AMOLED screen good for day or night use
  • 360 x 360 pixels resolution
  • 380mAh Battery
  • 49 x 46 x 12.9 mm of dimensions
  • Big but also very heavy
  • Heart Rate Tracker

The Bad

  • It has a great sleep tracker, but the watch is so big, its nearly impossible to sleep with it, at least for me
  • GPS issues
  • Because of Tizen OS fewer Apps compared to other Android-based watches
  • No water resistant
  • After wearing it for a long time, you might feel uncomfortable
  • Very bad charger design
  • Expensive and hard to find spare parts

The Good

  • Compared to the Microsoft Band, great fitness tracking
  • Very Good battery life ( up to 6 full days based on my average usage )
  • Design options as “Classis” or “Frontier”
  • Samsung Pay Support
  • Good Build in Speaker
  • Lots of space (4GB)
  • Receive and make calls from the watch


A  smartwatch that lets your phone in your pocket and keeps you in control and gives you some fitness capabilities as a bonus. Notifications are working good, and it gives you the fitness options you might like.


3 out 5

After using the watch for a year

After a while the new product will loose its shine and you will see the realities. Originally I did rate the product 4 but I am cutting down one more mark for not finding all the apps which i see in other Android watches . Yes , its heavy, and yes you will complain specially in hot weathers.

Samsung can easily annoy you with Bixy and Samsung Pay, NO I don’t want to use it but they keep reminding you that and there is no way you can get rid of it. I found a way ! Saying bye bye to Samsung.
