    Great band, disappointed in only one size option!

    This is a great band as it is comfortable and when you have the right size, it fits well. However, when buying this as a replacement band it only comes in one size, unlike when you buy the watch and get two different sized bands to make sure you have an accurate fit. We figured we'd give this one a shot as we didn't have any other option and it just isn't large enough for my husband's wrist. We've worked with numerous employees and have searched high and low for a large sized silicone band, but have had no luck. Even the BB employees are baffled at not having a large size silicone replacement band. Disappointed this doesn't seem to be an option so this item will unfortunately be returned.

    For small wrists only, and not for sensitive skin

    This is a sturdy, well-made band for the Gear S3, but I ended up replacing it with another. The first problem is that the band is pretty small; my wrists are only average size, but I had to fasten this using the last one or two holes on the band to get it to work. If my arms were any bigger, it would not have fit. The other issue I had is that it caused a really bad rash on the skin under the band. I've had watches with synthetic bands in the past, but this one caused my skin to develop a very red, itchy rash with raised bumps that almost looked like blisters. After removing the band, the rash went away within a few days.

    Not Blue at all

    I ordered this band twice for my fiance. The first time the receipt said "black" and was a black band. The same band the watch comes with. The second time the receipt said "blue/black" but was the black band the watch came with. I held up both of them and it's the same exact thing. Maybe for a replacement band it's good, but not for something where you're looking for a color choice. You're better off getting the green band that's on the website. I'd actually really like a refund !

    Loved this strap...

    so much, I bought 2 of them. Like some of the other reviewers have stated, I do wish the strap was the length of the original strap that shipped with the watch but that's my only complaint. The orange-red color is exactly what I wanted. The strap will give a little after you've worn it a bit, thankfully and make it more comfortable. Using the quick-change pins to swap the strap is not exactly quick. It's a thick strap so I need some assistance with a very small flat-head screw drive for the install. Easier for me.

    I had the leather strap on the classic galaxy gear s3 before, and after being very active, it didn’t hold up. Now that I have the strap from the frontier version, it’s way more fit for what I do (bicycling, basketball, weightlifting, gardening, landscaping) all while still looking classy for my taste in fashion. I work in an office environment and this look still works.

    Wanted a replacement strap, and wanted the same quality, so I bought this official Samsung replacement. The watch originally came with two sizes, small and large, and this strap is equal to the small one. I actually wanted the larger size, but this is still able to fit. Not sure if that's my fault, but I didn't see a size in the description when I was ordering it. So, just be aware that this is the smaller size strap.

    Best non-leather band for the S3

    This is the silicon band that comes with the Samsung S3 watch. When mine tore while hiking I tried a few replacements from online stores, including 2 metal variants and an off-brand silicon one. In the end none of them came close to the comfort and fit of the original. It is stiff initially and takes some breaking in, but ends up being more comfortable and durable than any others I've tried. I did not try a leather band, however.

    SWEET ALTERNATIVE TO THE STANDARD BLACK

    Very comfortable and adds touch of color to the already classy S3 Frontier - for anyone who wants either an earthier style, or it would really work for that military/olive appearance! If you want the versatility - do it! I'm glad I did. (The only drawback is the standard one-size fit ... if you're a stockier guy, and if you're already on the last hole of the black standard band, this is the exact same size/fit. Might need to find an XL band elsewhere.)

    High Quality, Poor Sizing

    I was really excited to get this band for my new Gear S3. However, I was disappointed when I tried to put it on only to find out it wouldn't fit! This is a size down compared to the size the original band the watch comes with. I checked and Samsung doesn't offer a bigger sizes in the bands you are able to purchase. I would definitely recommend this band if you have a wrist size that fits it!

    Lov this strap

    so much, bought 2. Is definitely shorter than the black one that comes with the watch but it does ease up after wearing it a bit. I wear mine on the tight side and this really fits the bill. Love the feel and the color on this. Even though it states that this is a quick change strap, the actual change of the strap is not so quick. The strap is on the think side so getting to the quick change pin is not that easy. Just be patient.

    Wanted a red strap so that the watch pops out. It's not the bright shade of red I was expecting but its still better than black on black. I usually have my watch face black and red dials and it goes great with this strap. Great thing about buying this original band rather than $10 knowckoffs on Ebay is that this doesn't go black with usage. No dust collection and chipping off band. So very durable quality.

    Strap too short

    One of the 2 strap keepers on my Frontier broke, decided to get a new band, got this one and it's short. The band with the adjustment holes is shorter than the one that comes with the watch. There are no markings on the package or other documentation that says it's shorter. The band with the clasp that comes with the watch has 2 sizes, a standard and a short one. Why is this strap shorter?

    Bought this to give my Gear S3 a bit more character and was pleased that the fit and color were exactly what I was looking for. The only thing I'll mention to be aware of is the sizing of the band. As others have mentioned it runs slightly smaller than the original band, but is high quality and fits perfectly to the watch itself. Highly recommend!

    I bought this watch to replace my Gear S2 (AT&T) with service. I was never really happy the the S2 for a number of different reasons. The S3 solved all of my issues. Now, I am comfortable with leaving my phone behind, and I can still make and receive calls and texts. If I could figure out how to download music to it, life would be grand, lol. Other than that, well worth the money!

    Bought this watch as a gift for my fiancé! He doesn’t even wear watches usually, but he is very tech savvy! He absolutely loved it. He wears is all the time! You can do so much with the watch! I was even amazed! You can watch YouTube videos straight from the watch. It’s great. Great size, colors on the screen look great, very user friendly!

    Bought this watch over other smart watches due to the durability they were said to have, I am a mechanic and spend a lot of time in grease, oil, water, etc. That being said it has held up perfectly! Also takes a lot of abuse from hitting tools and undersides of cars! I would recommend a screen protector but other than that. Flawless!

    Original watchband sustained deep cut (my fault) and tried aftermarket replacement. Surprisingly developed allergy to thinner band. OEM replacement a bit stiff due to thickness but a secure comfortable fit well worth it! Will purchase an extra just in case.

    Fits perfect and looks great. I wear a military uniform for my work and I don't have to worry about the straps getting scratched up like my leather straps. Matches with my uniform while keeping a low profile while on my wrist

    Band is easy to change, just don't use anything sharp to depress pin. Green complements the Gear S3 well. Band is slightly smaller than stock band. Fourth hole on stock fit nice this one is a little tight on third hole.

    Had bought the fitbit blaze but could not get it to work with my Samsung S8 and give me text or phone alerts. Returned and got the Samsung Gear 3 classic, sync effortlesly to my Samsung S8, can read text, answer and make calls (Fitbit Blaze doesn't do that) Couldn't be happier
