Samsung Gear Sport Smartwatch

  • Great smart watch and features. Since buying, I am motivated to exercise.
  • This smartwatch has a very nice and modern look, the size is perfect, I think the Gear S3 is just too big. Plenty of features. The screen quality is the best.
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 My Fitbit was nice but it seemed outdated.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.

What customers say about "Power"
Samsung Gear Sport Smartwatch
  • Had gear s2 prior and would not hold charge this holds charge for 2 day.
  • Wife loves features and clock face. Only drawback is length of charge. Certain down loaded clock faces drain charge quickly when left on. Would recommend though.
  • The features on this phone are great but the battery life is just too low.
  • So far it does exactly what I thought it would do. Wish you would charge a little faster.
  • I’m disappointed in the charge time and using time before charging again.
Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch
  • Great that it can hold a charge for almost 3 days were others can only last 1 or 2 days.
  • Very good on battery usage. Once it is charged to 100% it status charged for at least 2 days!
  • The battery life is good, charges very fast too.
  • Husband loves it. The charge time is awesome and it runs smoothly.
  • After about three weeks the watch failed to charge. I touched it and it was hot to touch. I returned it and got a Garmin.
  • I like the watch, but it needs charged more then my Fitbit blaze did.
