It is no longer the flower at Samsung's eyelet, but Tizen's Gear S3 remains one of the best smartwatches that can be purchased.
Currently, Amazon has the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch on sale for $ 229. Normally priced at $ 350, which is $ 120 on its list price and only $ 2 shy of its historical low.
The Gear S3 Frontier combines the look and feel of a classic watch with the functionality of a modern smartwatch. It includes all the features expected of today's top fitness trackers, such as an altimeter, a barometer, a heart rate monitor and an integrated GPS sensor. It is also waterproof and suitable for everything from cycling to climbing. However, keep in mind that you will not want to use it for swimming, since it can endure being in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.
The clock connects to your Android or iOS smartphone and can send notifications and messages directly to your wrist. And despite its always active display, its battery lasts for up to three days on a single charge – a business that no Apple Watch can match. We'd like it to support more apps, but otherwise it's a solid choice for smartwatch owners for the first time.
If you have a lower budget, you can purchase the Samsung Gear Sport Fitness Watch for $ 159.99 from BuyDig. That's $ 40 off its normal price. (The price indicates $ 197.99, but the discount is applied during the final checkout page). Sport focused on fitness offers the same basic features as the S3, but boasts a significantly smaller design. It is also water resistant up to 50 meters, which means it can be used to monitor pool workouts.
