    Used - Not refurbed

    Last year I bought a refurbed Galaxy S7. It was flawless. The refurbished watch however appears to have experienced a significant amount of wear. No damage, per se, just lots of wear marks. I compared the band to one that is over one year old and they show remarkably similar amounts and patterns of wear. For example, the one place where the buckle always is latched and has worn an indentation into the band, and the textured pattern of the band is completely worn away in the area that would contact your desk while typing. With only a 90-day warranty from Best Buy, it was too much for me to accept. My conclusion: Absolutely no refurbishment work was performed. It was likely checked for operation, cleaned, and shipped (without its original packaging or documentation). If BB had replaced the band, the only indicator of wear would be the significant scratching of the bezel, and I might(?) have have kept it - at my peril. I would have had a used watch with essentially no warranty. The upshot? Won't trust BB on a refurb again. Def not worth it.

    Large Size Good Looking Bad Bezel

    The Samsung Gear S3 watches are innovative by design and attractive appearance led me to buy one even though I am an Apple user. The S3 Frontier watch version is very large similar in size to those oversized chronograph/dive men’s watches that are more a fashion statement. The S3 has some fantastic features and the display looks great, but many users find the rotating bezel to eventually stop working which renders most features broken. If you have Android Samsung phones and can buy this watch with an extended warranty then give it a try.

    Best Smartwatch out there with a big but...

    This watch blows away Apple's watch. The screen is completely customizable, the quality of the screen looks a lot better and brighter. It even works pretty well with the iPhone. And the construction of the watch is rock solid. So why the 2 star review? The battery in mine lasted 2 years. It's not user replaceable and Samsung wants $75 to replace it. So for $300 I got 2 years use out of it. Not a good watch value in my opinion.

    After only two weeks the battery stopped charging to 100%> At the most it'll get to 90%. From what I've read it looks like this watch is prone to have these battery issues. I definitely wish I would not of sold my S2 classic when I got this. Save your money and wait for their next watch and hopefully it wont have the issues.

    Great watch, but my refurbished model arrived broken. The heart rate sensors would not work, and the auto-on/off sensor did not work. Returned for a NIB and am happy.

    This was a refurbished device. Luckily I checked it before gifting. The device wouldn’t hold a charge for longer than 1 hour.

    The Classic GearS3 worked seamlessly! The watchband was beat up and BestBuy didn't even offer to swap it out for a clean one! Returned and thus this review!

    This is just an expensive toy. The practicality of it is not really there.
