    "Watch interface is super cool its easy and fun to use something to look forward to at the start of the day. Round bezel is a great way to go for watches. This one is beautiful but a bit thick and heavy. Need to be strong to wear it."

    "To be honest I’ve been wanting this watch for awhile now. But I am a through and through Apple user . Been in the music biz for over 20 years and Mac is king here. But I keep reading that this phone doesn’t have all the bells and whistles on an iPhone like it does on others . I do t like the look of Apple watches but if the s3 frontier comes out with iPhone full functionality I’m in."

    "This watch is beautiful and functional. It looks like a high quality normal watch, but has the great features that you want in a smart watch; phone notifications, text, etc. There's a speaker and microphone too so you can take calls. "

    "Pretty good in my opinion. I was not totally convinced but after reading a ton of reviews and blog posts, I took the plunge and bought the S3, and I must say I'm really happy with it. Needless to say, it's not an Apple Watch and the expectations should not be the same. But the price is also much softer on your wallet. And I find that it really does everything I want it to do, and maybe a little more. I actually still can't get over the fact that I can make calls from my watch - call me childish, but the thought still makes me giddy, like it's the 1950s and I own a device from the future. The only (small) problem I have with it is that it's not fully Android - it's compatible with Android, but it uses proprietary Samsung software, and it's more limited. But it's still pretty powerful and a great buy."

    "This smartwatch is just slick. This is like you're James Bond right here. It's so refreshing that it's not a square or a rectangular shape and that it has an actual clock face on it. You can have all the fun of a smartwatch but all the great look of an expensive watch. I really love large round watches so finally I've got something that has the watch look that I love but can do all the fun stuff too. I'm in love with this. Only not a 5 rating because iOS doesn't work 100% with this."

    "This is a great smartwatch for men. It's too big and bulky for my dainty wrists but is great for my boyfriend. It has the main features he was interested so he's happy with it. It's too bad that there aren't that many apps available for it though."

    "The very high end of smart watches, for those who don't want to compromise on anything as well as wanting the luxury of a beautiful watch. Many other smart watches might have similar capabilities, and many "dumb" watches comparable looks. But none of them meld those two things together as well this one. It looks gorgeous but it's also extremely useful. I even use this watch to pay for things at the store with NFC technology. It's incredible and I have gotten a lot of comments on it."

    "The best part of this watch is the pedometer, so if that's what you're looking for - this is a great choice. The other features are okay, but you really need to pair it with a Samsung Galaxy. My biggest disappointment was that the GPS wasn't much good. To be honest, I was pretty surprised by that. I didn't just purchase this for the pedometer and health stuff, I wanted something that acted as a phone (which it could, if it was right near my phone - which obviated the need for the watch). So, you kind of need to know what features you want (and you need to have the right phone!). It's pretty costly for just a wearable pedometer (that's all I get out of it). "

    " Bought the Waterfi and it worked good for two weeks. Somehow it got a shallow crack in the face. I've had other fitbits for years and never got a crack. It stopped working and I was informed that warranty wouldn't cover it even though it was just days old. Not worth the money in my opinion if it breaks so easy. This is not the Fitbit company. They take the Fitbit and waterproof it. Probably would be different if I could work with Fitbit warranty directly. Won't buy again 1"

    " Just as with the Gear S2, setup was a breeze. The Samsung Gear app in my Galaxy Note 5 picked up the S3 immediately and went through setting it up effortlessly. It was nice to see that I can toggle between my S2 and S3 settings by simply selecting the watch model from the dropdown in the top left corner of the app."

    "This watch works really well at first, but in the next 90 days it starts to go down. Try not to update the watch if possible. I actually did this with my android phone and it killed it. Same thing happens with this smartwatch.There is a bug mentioned in the Samsung forums where the battery life after update drops in about 12 hours. It's said that the bug has something to do with the weather app, fitness part: heart-rate, and the GPS. It ruins the battery somehow. Hope Samsung fixes this serious glitch."

    "This watch is built to be water resistant, although it is likely not a good option for rowing. This would be a better option for moving around town, maybe even running, but it seems like overkill when it comes to rowing. There are certainly loads of features with this watch, but many of them would have no use if you were rowing, other than the timer and GPS. If you need something for rowing I would recommend looking for something that is more simplistic. "

I was able to use it for about 2.5 miles into my run and it stopped tracking for the remaining 2.5 miles. I like that I was able to use it to listen to music as the music keeps me motivated through my work out. I also went for a swim and it timed out, didn't stop working though. All together I liked it but not crazy about it because there was issues tracking my entire work out."

    "I love my new Samsung Gear S3 watch. It's bulky and sturdy - a man's watch. It came with a silicone band, but that is easy to change if you don't like it. I changed mine to a bright, striped band so it would be easier to find if I forget where I put it. What I love is that you can download any app from the App Store, you can send music, add your contacts so you can make phone calls, it can be in the water up to 30 minutes. It includes GPS, IP68, speaker, and HRM. It has a larger battery than the S2, lasting up to 4 days before needing to charge. Overall a great watch for sportsmen. I give it a 10+."
