This is my first smartwatch so I cannot compare to other products, but I really enjoy this watch. I have small wrists (under 6") so I was concerned about this looking bulky. Well, it is bulky looking but I don't care. It is very useful to me so the bulk I can ignore. It paired easily (by BT) with my Samsung phone. There are plenty of options to customize. What I like the most is that I often miss calls and notifications when on the go because either my phone is in my pocket or handbag. The notifications, calls, text etc show up quickly on this watch so I'm not missing anything anymore. I have taken a few phone calls on the watch, and played music as well. I like that I can swipe away notifications on the watch, and it removes the notification on my phone as well so that I don't have that extra step. I would say the watch bexel is maybe a dark rose gold, I realize that it is labeled as Bronze. Yeah, maybe, but definitely a nice color as I usually choose black, but this is pretty. The watch band is a lighter color than the bexel, but you can always change the band if interested. I gave my son the 45mm one in black for his birthday, and he loves that one as well. I sometimes do wear BT earbuds connected to the same phone that the watch is connected to, and there's been no issue with getting all notification etc to go through. If someone calls, it goes to my earbuds, although I believe I can switch it the the watch if I wanted. You can switch the call if you can pick it up on the watch, and then for privacy if you want to continue the call on your phone, Definitely glad I purchased!
Love this watch! I love that it looks so sharp when I am more dressed up. It is a little bulky if I want to use it for tracking exercises, but I chose this watch over the active 2 for its appearance so I knew what I was getting. Overall so far it has been very easy to use and connect. Love the rotating bezel as well!
Have had it little over a week and so far it's a great watch. Love the look and feel, rotating bezel is helpful. Little bulky, bit not as big as the first samsung galaxy watch. Thousands of watch faces to choose from. Only thing is I wish they had more watch bands to choose from.
This is an unlocked watch. Advice: Intitially, I called AT&T to link my phone number to the watch; however, I had to go to AT&T store to get a Q code from them. I do not believe codes come with unlocked watches, but they come with watches from a particular carrier. Once I recieved the code, I linked my phone number to my watch through my app. It was a fairly easy process, but it can be difficult for some to figure out if you are not tech savvy. Overall, I like watch.
Pretty solif piece of equipment, the wrist band arent so great if you can get a different type than letter, the watch itself is pretty helpful and easy to use

This watch has everything, almost. I bought this watch because I thought it would help but it didn’t have everything I thought it did. I can’t blame the watch I suppose - I wanted the watch to track blood pressure but it didn’t have this feature so I returned it. I guess I assumed that since the knock off $25 watches had it, certainly Samsung would. I do love the brand and the watch was sleek and had a great look. I will be purchasing the Samsung watch when it adds the features I need, hopefully soon.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 reviewThe Galaxy Watch 3 sees Samsung take an already fantastic smartwatch and improve it further with new fitness features and design tweaks.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 Is the Android Smartwatch I've Been Waiting ForI've been searching for years for an Android smartwatch that I could confidently recommend as being as good as, if not better than, the Apple Watch. Well, the search is over. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 is that smartwatch.
Galaxy Watch 3 review: The best non-Apple smartwatchWith the Galaxy Watch 3, Samsung continues to prove it can make a better smartwatch companion for Android phones than Google. Although the Watch 3 is chunkier than its similarly capable Active series, it brings improved sleep and health tracking
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: The (other) smartwatch you should buyIf you own an Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 should be at the top of your smartwatch shopping list. It's expensive, but worth it.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: The best Android smartwatchSmartwatches are almost always forced to compromise in their design in some way. After all, it's hard to cram all of the various specs and sensors that make these tiny wrist computers so functional into something you'd actually want to wear out
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 review: One of the best Apple Watch alternativesThe main aesthetic criticism of Samsung's original Galaxy Watch is its chunky design. It has big bezels and an in-your-face look that many people either love or hate. Samsung really turned things around with the Galaxy Watch 3. It's thinner and
A:AnswerJerry, the difference between BT and LTE is that bluetooth you connect it tk your phone and works while its near your phone. But LTE it shares your phone number and you can leave it at home and stilll make/take calls, text while out and about.
A:AnswerYES I had a hard time Called Sprint and they had me take it to corporate store. They still couldn't get it connected. Called Samsung and they had me send it in. I was told the same as you from sprint on the phone, that no Sims card but when I went to the corporate store she said watches don't come with Sims cards no matter if they are LTE. Frustrated as you are. Hope you find an answer because I'm still furious. Should have came READY out of the box.
A:AnswerYes. This watch will connect to your phone via Blue Tooth. The watch will need to stay in proximity to your phone. I can move about my house without issue. I have only owned this watch for approx. a month. I have not yet taken the next step to contact my phone carrier to set up the watch LTE to be a stand alone. So far, I really like the watch,
A:Answerno that is not true i purchased my watches through best buy and they are both activated. Tell them you are doing a number share with your number, also if you follow the prompts on the watch it should guide u on doing that.
A:AnswerThese are great questions to have! The Galaxy Watch3 does have the trip detection feature available. You are aslo able to make a SOS call and send a SOS message when a hard fall is detected. Thank you for asking this question. ^Kayla
A:AnswerHad my series 2 watch 3 years never had any issues never overheated and still works great I just purchased tgw new galaxy smartwatch because I like to be up ro date with technology but honestly besides the look of tge watch there is no difference or any added features which was disappointing
