What customers say about "Features"
Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch
  • Excellent the sensors to detect the different activities like running, moving, or sleeping.
  • I really like the features on the Samsung watch. My Fitbit was nice but it seemed outdated. The auto exercise could activate a little sooner to match the treadmill numbers.
  • Enjoy wearing it daily and using all the many features.
  • The features available pass competitors not only with clarity of picture but also when using watch for phone calls and texts.
  • Nice features able to answer phone calls and texts and biometrics. Much better than the fitbit surge.
Apple Watch Series 3 Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band
  • Love the watch. I just wish they sold round faces and not just squared.
  • Love my watch. It is easy to use. I love the Toy Story face!!
  • Love my Apple Watch. Not use to having my wrist vibrate all the time.
  • Love my new Apple Watch first one ever! Works great only downfall every now and then you can feel it vibrate against your wrist for no apparent reason.
  • Not happy with protective shield purchased with it
  • I would recommend getting a protective case for the watch bc it scratches easily.
