Smartwatches are the new trend in watches. More and more people prefer advanced technology than a usual wristwatch.
Samsung is one of the biggest companies all over the world. It is known for their electronics and their quality. They produce smartwatches that are highly popular all over the world.
The evolution of Samsung smartwatches is really amazing. But after years of research and technological improvement, we have today the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier.
It combines luxury and usefulness. Usually, such watches are beautiful and they have no software or they have software and they are ugly.
Let’s dive into the world of this smartwatch!
Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is an excellent quality watch with AMOLED screen. It has a touchscreen, a rotating wheel, and physical buttons to navigate into the software really easy. The performance is really smooth.
It contains many services such as:
- Step Counter
- News Feed
- Track your daily water and coffee
- You can add your own widgets
There is also a feature that is called SOS Service. When you press 3 times, it automatically sends an alarm to your closest people that you are in danger.
The upper physical button is for back and lower is for home. Double pressing the lower button is a fast app opener. You can choose what app you want to open fast. This could be the alarm or the S Voice.
Samsung Health (or S Health) is ideal for people who want to maintain their physical appearance good and have a strong body. It includes a fitness monitor and monitor for sports like walking, running, cycling, elliptical trainer, rowing machine and dynamic workout.
Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is charged wirelessly and the battery life can last for about 4 days.
The bands change easily if they break or for changing the look of the watch. It is really beautiful and classy. The face of the watch changes easily and you can pick from a big variety of faces.
It can survive drops and it is really durable. The screen is Gorilla Glass so that it is not scratch or break easily.
It contains Bluetooth, WiFi connection and NFC. Also, it contains GPS for your walking and hiking.
It comes with a warranty if there is any problem.
There is also an LTE version, which supports making calls.
Using the apps constantly can lead to a smaller duration of battery life than the 4 days.
In my opinion, if you do not have a Samsung smartphone, I recommend to not buy this watch as you may have problems with notifications and calls if you buy the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier LTE.
It can be beautiful but it is bigger than average smartwatch because of the big hardware.
