    • Best answerThe difference between the LTE and Bluetooth (BT) is the labels indicate connection themselves they primary use to receive data. It uses 4g LTE like a traditional smart phone to be able to give you notifications without you needing your phone within BT distance or even being on. This could also allow you to pay with your watch through Samsung Pay without both your wallet or your phone (or whatever reason you might consider yourself in such a situation) if need be. However, to use such; this requires you signing up with a cellular provider of your choice and paying a monthly service for such. The benefit to this is that, like smart phones, you can get your Gear S3 for cheap or even free if you score the right deal with a contract. The 4g LTE version also includes BT, NFC, and WiFi connections and thus you don't lose out on "Features" if you bought the 4g LTE over the non 4g LTE version. So the difference is if you buy the regular Gear S3 (think "Non 4g LTE") you just lose out on having the 4g, but don't have to pay a monthly service. If you sat the two side by side, there is no difference in look or size, just a "Theoretical" weight difference of the amount of weight of a SIM card that would go inside the 4g LTE version. In purchasing one, if go into a Best Buy store, you should NOT be able to buy a 4g LTE without specifically asking for it and usually requires you going to the Cell Phone area. If you go to the Samsung area, you will only find the "non 4g LTE" version

    • Best answerThe GPS radio is built into the watch so it needs no phone or cellular plan to receive the GPS signal. The time is displayed using the digital screen. If the battery dies, the screen gets no power and you will not be able to tell the time.

    • Best answerThis watch is 46mm. It looks large on a man and giant on most female wrists. For a 12 year old, I would suggest the S2 or S2 Classic.

  • Q: What is the case and bezel made from?  (3 Answers)

    By Bradford 

    • Best answerThe case is metal. The rotating dial appears to be a hard plastic that will scratch very easily, I have mine for 1 month and the finish on bezel is wearing down already! Don't bump it , it will scratch.
