    Good value for money. Best design, good features. Big screen. People who don't like big dials may not like this watch.

    LOVE this thing! All the features I could have asked for and then some, nice-looking out of the box, rather than an eyesore you have to struggle to find a band to compensate for, or pretend the hideousness is its own "statement". My gait throws off the vast majority of activity tracking watches and devices, but the Gear S3 Classic is remarkably accurate. One word of caution: if your wrist is as absurdly small as mine (under 5" circumference), you might find the metal body of the watch itself is a bit larger than the width of your wrist. I don't find this uncomfortable myself because of the curvature.

    A great all around watch for the money, I put it through the paces, tough watch. as far as fitness applications, it could probably use an upgrade. not always the most accurate, though pretty good. and the Gps has outright quit a couple of times on me, thus not recording my distance. @@@@@@@@ a little irratating to say the least ).

    I was considering getting into the smartphone market for some time. After reading some reviews for the s3, I decided to grab one. Here are some thoughts: pros: - price (refurb had a good discount) - quick and responsive - great battery (2-3 days of use with 1 charge with moderate use) cons: -no android wear (personal preference) - had initial trouble connecting. This was quickly resolved. overall: highly recommend

    What a great smartwatch. So far it is exceeding my expectations. Works really well with my S7 Edge. Save some money and go with this model vs brand new. Only downside is you don't get original packaging. For me it is not a deal breaker.

    I purchased this to replace my gear S2. I bought a Refurb for the lower price point. Was worth every it. The Refurb was practically brand new. Not a single scratch. You could not even tell it was a returned or refurbished item. It bigger than the S2 and the options for replacement bands are much greater. Easy to swap. There were a few watch faces on my S2 that are not on my S3 frontier, but it was worth the upgrade. Very pleased!

    First, this was a refrb product, so the price was good. I liked the classic dressier design versus the rugged outdoorsy design. I work in an office and rarely do outdoorsy stuff so, the style works for me. CNet and some other reviews said it was HUGE on the wrist. No, see a Nixon. That's huge. It's a normal sized watch. The amazing selection of watch faces is a great feature. Heartbeats measurement is cool, lets me know if I need to kick up my treadmill to get in that next zone. ALso can talk to my contacts via the watch. Altimiter, baraomter, and a host of other tools are available.

    So like most said on here, you only get the watch with the large and small straps, the charger and cable. No box. Not a big deal as you can typically save $80-170 when buying refurbished. I bought it when it was $185. I was a little hesitant due to the reviews. I went ahead and bought it. It was in perfect condition (almost), there was a bit of dried sweat on the inside of the band but everything else was excellent. BUT... the battery was terrible, it was laggy, and the bezzel felt very loose. I talked to BestBuy and they sent me a replacement (refurbished still) and it was perfect, had a very small unnoticeable scratch on the bezel but the battery life and performance where much better. I would definitely recommend getting the refurbished on sale in order to sale a ton of money. I would not have bought it if it wasn't on sale. I am still in between this and my Fossil Q (Android Wear). There are pro and cons to each, but I use this one for sleeping and every day use. The Fossil is more for when I am dressing up a bit or going out. The battery and the bezel are really what separate this thing from Android Wear. Although AW (Android Wear) has a few more useful and customizable apps/launchers. S voice is quite terrible, Google obviously wins this one. Other than that I am quite happy with this watch, just wish that I could use it for swimming like I do with my Garmin Fenix. I would definitely get some nice watchbands on Amazon for this, as well as a screen protector just in case. The bezel is replaceable btw, so after a while you can simply put in a new one.

    2 Year Replacement Plan (Read the fine print!!!!)

    Purchased a Gear 3 Classic smartwatch (Geek Squad Certified Refurbished) for $227 online. I add the 2 year replacement plan for $59.99 to protect my investment...Awesome deal!!! Received watch on 5-17-18. 4 days later bezel ceased to rotate smoothly, often requiring muscle to move it. With 2 Year Replacement Plan in effect, I took it to the Morrow, GA location for replacement. Here is the synopsis of my far less than stellar customer service experience. 1. Geek Squad rep examined watch and told me it was supposed to be that way since it was new. @@@@@@@@ huh????? @@@@@@@ 2. Tried to use the 2 Year Replacement Plan 3. Best Buy informed me I would have to pay the $122 difference between the new watch and my malfunctioning Geek Squad Certified Refurbished watch, despite the 2 Year Protection Plan purchase 4. Best Buy did not offer to repair the watch 5. Best Buy did not offer to source a similarly priced replacement 6. At my request, the General Manager printed the 2 Year Replacement Plan and highlighted the, 'at Best Buy's discretion' clauses. 7. I asked for District Manager's name and number. The General Manager wrote down,1-800-Best-Buy and told me, verbatim, "That's all your gonna get" (smh) 8. Nothing was done to acknowledge and rectify the broken watch I had just purchased with a 2 Year Replacement Plan Whatever happened to truth in advertising? When did customer service stop being about exceeding our expectations? Best Buy failed to even meet my expectations in this regard. In conclusion, I left Best Buy with the same broken Geek Squad Certified Refurbished smartwatch I came in with...despite purchasing a 2 Year Replacement Plan. Watch purchased on 5-13-18. Date of this review 5-23-18.
