Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch

Review and how it works

you found the product description hard to grab, here is the detailed review of the smartwatch, Get motivated to move more, eat better, and live a healthy life. The Gear Sport tracks your fitness and diet, keeping you on the right path to reach your goals. It’s as stylish as it is functional.


Watch Color

Gear Sport comes in two colors, one which is like a default to blend in and the other to be unique or stand out. Choose from a timeless black or a striking blue to spark your style whether you’re at the gym or going about your day.

Watch Face and Strap

Totally customisable, you can change the look of your Gear Sport with a wide range of different straps and watch faces. Whether it’s the sporty Hybrid Sport, the timeless Classic Leather, or the casual cool Premium Nato, there’s a style to go with your look. Either be business, classic or formal.

Health Use

Set health and diet goals on your phone and start tracking your progress right from your wrist: Gear Sport makes it easy to keep your calories in balance and track calorie intake. It also offers tips and insights that you can use to stay on track.

P..S Gear Sport is not a medical or therapeutic device and weight and health management feature is intended for informational purposes only.

Workouts Flexibility

Exercising just got easier with the training guide app on your phone. Select from over 60 workouts in the smartwatch, with more to come, and the Gear Sport will guide you through the motions as it measures your heart rate.

(Offered through third-party partner apps. Apps can be downloaded manually and availability may vary by country, region, and Operating Service.)

Swimming Compability

If swimming is your choice of sport or you get caught running in the rain or fall in a pool and decide to go stroking for few rounds, keep going. The Gear Sport has a water-resistant rating of 5ATM or 50 meters, meaning even in the deep end, your activity is recorded.* Then you can sync with Speed On, Speed’s new Swim Tracking app, and dig into the details. Though should be noted that it is not suitable for diving or high-pressure water activities. If the device or your hands are wet, they must be dried thoroughly prior to handling.

(The Speed On app must be downloaded separately. Availability of the Speed On app may vary by country, region, and Operating service).

Timely calculated sugggestions

At inactive times when you are either stiff with movement the gear smart watch would recommend stretches say you are in a plane, traveling, or just sitting stiff without movement of parts of the body, which reduces blow flow and other things associated with it. Though it is important to note that the smartwatch would not recommend you stretch when you are driving as you would need more concentration then.

Control with a touch

Changing settings or replying to notifications is as simple as a swipe on the screen or a turn of the bezel.* Swipe up or down from any screen to access the Customized Moment Bar and adjust the volume, check the battery level, and more. And if a text comes in, you can reply to it with a turn of the bezel.

*Requires Bluetooth pairing with mobile phone to receive texts.

NFC -based Samsung pay compatibility

Make purchases with a tap on your Gear Sport thanks to the NFC-based Samsung Pay compatibility.

(Samsung Pay requires pairing with mobile phone prior to use. Availability of Samsung Pay may differ by country, region. and OS)


  • Perfect Excuse from the Phone, which is the best feature I like about the smartwatch
  • Awesome value for the cost
  • Totally customisable watch face and strap to meet every style needs be it formal, classic or sport.


No matter how nice a product is as far as there is innovation every day there have always a been expectation for Cons and Flaws. Let’s check out these Flaws below:


  • Heart rate monitor fluctuate at extreme cases
  • Compability with some phones can be an issue with the usability of the smartwatch
  • Expensive
  • Excessive use of the product like not closing unnecessary apps and other features reduces battery life and product life span.
  • There is a new product, and basically the effect this has it makes the previous product inferior.

How does it work compared to the New Samsung Galaxy Smart SM-R800NZSAXAR Smartwatch?

The Samsung Galaxy is a newer product from the Samsung Brand which have been reviewed in a previous post and there is a basis for comparison between the two to know which exactly to go for, what this new product have in it Specs and what it sucks at.

Click here for the comparison of the Samsung galaxy SM-R800NZSAXAR and the Gear S3 Frontier which was made on the basis of Swimming compatibility, battery life, Glass cover, Internal specs, memory, and storage.


Show me a good product without a flaw, and I will show you a world without innovation, overall I think you should give the Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch a try to enjoy the smartwatch, BUT, if you would rather stick with the more recent product release of the Samsung brand then you would want to go for the Galaxy Smartwatch R800NZSAXAR.

If you have any question, suggestion, observation, or you want to share your experience with the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch, please leave a comment below and I will reply as I get them.
