The Gear S3 is water- and dust-resistant, and offers “military-grade durability to protect against extreme temperatures, scratches and impact,” Samsung promised. You can, of course, also customize it to match your outfit or mood, thanks to thousands of watch faces and the ability to swap out the band for any 22mm offering.
he watch features a built-in GPS, letting you monitor your fitness activities, share your location with friends, or use an SOS feature in the event of an emergency. You can use it with Samsung Pay to purchase items from your wrist “virtually anywhere you can tap or swipe a credit or debit card,” Samsung said.
The LTE version lets you receive texts and alerts as well as listen to music, track fitness routes, and download apps even when your phone is stowed away. All models have a built-in speaker and microphone, so you can make and answer calls without reaching for your phone.
