Samsung Gear S3 Frontier

This smartwatch is the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier! I am entering the new year with a new & super cool Samsung smartwatch review with CoolBlue. This time is the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier, and will this smartwatch pass above the earlier smartwatches I have tried? Such as the Fossil Q Crewmaster Hybrid Smartwatch, Skagen Hagen Connected or the Fitbit Blaze?

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is available in all black which is a plus point for me. The size of the face and the band are apparently focusing on persons with big wrist but can you say that this watch looks ridiculous on the smaller wrist like mine? I do not think so. The Gear S3 Frontier is not as heavy as it looks. The size of the case and the strap is the same as the Fossil Q Crewmaster Hybrid. I kind of love the black active silicone strap which perfectly goes with the sturdy design, however, the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier will look perfect with a small upgrade to available bands. My choice will be the Alligator Grain Leather Band Black. Furthermore, the watch can stand to be underwater for around 30 minutes in 1,5 meters deep.

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier has a Gorilla Glass which will protect the Gear S3 Frontier‘s 1.3-inch Super AMOLED display with its Always On Display. There are 15 pre-design for the face watch to choose or design one for yourself to be unique. The watch has two buttons, a bezel you can turn, a touchscreen to be touch or pressed to navigate the watch functions. So cool! I found that Hybrid Smartwatch is great because it looks like a traditional watch but I found it not that handy uses. The Gear S3 give a perfect look of a classic watch but then easier to use when it comes to the digital functions such as apps or notifications.

I found it strange to use the built-in speaker to make or answer a call and talk to my wrist, but this is such a dream come true. It feels so futuristic which makes my nerdy side jumping around like a child with an ice cream in the hot summer. Another great thing is the GPS and the integration with the maps function. I use maps on my mobile phone a lot while biking. Having my mobile phone in hand is not the safest way while biking. Now, with the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier and the maps & navigation app, I can keep my hands navigating my bike’s bars. Listening music The watch internal memory make it possible to have some music stored in the smartwatch, all I need is a pair of Bluetooth earphones and no more mobile phone in my pocket during gym sessions.

Health & Fitness

The Gear S3 tracks your activities, such as running, biking to mountain climbing. It also alerts you to changes in atmospheric pressure so that you can keep an eye out for weather changes. Not only that, when synced with the S Health app, the watch will track detailed data and long-term records on workouts, the progress of those elliptical workouts, rows, abs crunch and more. A small minus point is that the Heart Rate Monitor Sensor is not working optimal and accurate. The Gear S3 Frontier has difficulties in recognising my heartbeats. Fitbit Blaze heart rate monitor sensor works way much accurate and continuously monitor my heart rate.

Battery life

The battery life is superb. The Gear S3 will go with approximately up to four days in a row without charging; this watch is compelling. Of course, it depends on personal settings and usages. By the way, the wireless charging dock is handsome and fast.

The Apps

Some said that there are very limited Tizen apps available to be used. The amount of the app is much less than Apple or Google app. However, I have a different opinion about this matter. I think we should only add essentials app to the Gear S3. I still need to explore more when it comes to the possibilities of the various apps. However, 10.000 apps are available, and some said too little apps? Come on.


Comparing it with the Fossil Q Crewmaster, the Skagen Hagen Connected and the Fitbit Blaze (now reduced in price); the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is higher in pricing. However, this smartwatch worth it. However, I always find, do not choose items because of the pricing, but choose the one fits your needs.
