      Good Watch That Could Be Great

      If you have a Samsung phone (I have the Note8) and want a smartwatch to extend its functionality, the Gear S3 is the watch for you. It connects almost seamlessly with the Note8. S health syncs automatically between the watch and phone. My favorite feature is Samsung Pay, which works with both NFC readers and most regular card scanners. The watch faces are great. I love the always-on watch faces - the TUMI watch face is nice in that mode. I love that you can make and take calls from the watch and respond to messages and texts. Aside from making calls, almost everything else works independently of the phone - including Samsung Pay. I do find it odd, however, that with the watch, you have to register all of your cards again and you've essentially got two Samsung Pay apps to monitor - one for your phone and one for your watch. I wish it were better integrated. Here are my gripes with the watch: It's not a very good fitness tracker and I wouldn't recommend wearing it at the gym if you're lifting weights. The bezel and screen are tough, but they will scratch surprisingly easy when you're using a kettlebell!. I don't trust the heart rate readings, but I think that's a problem with any wrist-based monitor. To make matters worse, the watch itself doesn't natively pair to any heart rate monitor chest strap or device - you have to link those directly to your phone, which kind of eliminates the purpose. So, buy it as a smartwatch, but not as a fitness tracker. My biggest gripe is the absolute lack of apps. There are a bunch, but they all mostly suck. I really wanted a great hiking app. I mean it's called "Frontier" for lord's sake - I expected a native hiking app with turn by turn directions! There's also only one map app available that is any good from Here Maps - nothing from Google. So, it's a terrible navigation device overall. Main takeaway is that the watch is a wonderful extension of your Samsung phone and in some instances a replacement for the phone (and your wallet), but the watch falls short as a fitness tracker or navigational device.

      Nice Watch; Horrid Support

      Lets get the obvious fact out of the way - this is essentially the same watch as the Samsung S3 Frontier. The only differences - the watch band (you get two of them in the box) and the watch face (white Tumi - rather nice). For these, you pay a $100 more. Overall, the watch is nicer than the standard Frontier. I like it. However, there is an interesting aspect regarding the watch face - it is not pre-installed. The instructions for how to install the watch face can be found on a small sheet that is included in the box. It is easy to overlook - I know - I initially overlooked it. Like the other reviewer, I had difficulty finding how to install the watch face. I initially chatted with customer support who could not help me - they told me it was available on Galaxy support (it was not). When I called customer support, I was given a list of actions that had no impact on the appearance of the Tumi watch. Ultimately, they told me to wait for 15 minutes while they discussed the matter with their manager (it took more than 1 hour). They finally emailed me and told me to return the watch to Best Buy. As I was returning the watch, I noticed the paper. In short, a nice watch with truly horrible customers support.

      Amazing watch!

      This watch is just amazing! Best watch I've ever owned hands down and not just because it's a smart watch. This thing looks so nice and the exclusive Tumi band is flat out stunning. Better than any other bands I've seen available for this thing. I will say that the Tumi watch face needs to stop being advertised as exclusive with this purchase though, because it is NOT! Literally comes with a piece of paper with a link to a website where anyone can download this watch face. A simple search for anyone without this paper with the link or QR code to scan will find this watch face easily. Other than that though, this thing is great, I get around 3 days battery life depending on usage, have found some amazing watchfaces, can listen to music off this thing as I work and check all my notifications without having to get my phone out. I'm so glad I bought this!

      I received my watch on December 4th and 20 days later on Christmas eve I noticed the band already snapped and couldn't hold the watch face. the band was torn and the metal bar to hold it in place falls out now. I was so mad because i payed an extra 100 dollars for the tumi special edition and now I'm basically wearing a regular frontier with its normal bands. I hope they give me a new band or at least refund me my money on the bands since there is now way this is wear and tear after 20 days. So disappointed with the material they sent me.

      The Samsung S3 Tumi watch is great!

      I purchased the The Samsung S3 Tumi watch about a month ago. I previously owned the S2 and had no major complaints but wanted an upgrade. The S3 offers a few more options (altimeter and speed) but the biggest plus is the battery. It now lasts 2-3 days versus the S2 that I would get a little over a day. Plus the TUMI (on sale for the same price as the Frontier S3) has a very comfortable strap that allows me to wear it at night and monitor my sleep. The S2 did not have comfortable straps, all of them were silicone. They were okay for daytime wearing but at night they got hot and uncomfortable. The S3 Frontier TUMI is a nice watch that is comfortable and has extended battery time.

      King of smart watches

      First I have to say I did a lot of research before purchasing this watch, it fulfilled it's job extremely well. I own many watches but no aka smart watches. I would take away a star for battery life but I am sure it will do just fine as long as you are not constantly playing with it, so after you get it configured battery life does get better.

      I purchased the Tumi edition last night and it is going back today. I already had the Frontier S3 and I just wanted to "upgrade". For $100 more you get a nice extra band (in my opinion worth $30 or less-lots of these on Amazon) and a watch face that is "exclusive" but probably not really worth anything. The S3 is the best watch out there (I have tried many) but this package is not worth the extra $ in my opinion.

      Tumi Watch Face

      I've read a lot a reviews about the Tumi Exclusive watch face not being on the watch and it does NOT come pre-installed. You have to go to this link; http://galxy.us/tumi It will then open the gear app to the watchface for download. Now that's out of the way. It's a beautiful watch and the OS is great! The app store is VERY limited and lacking options but I assume this will grow with it's popularity. Call quality is great and loud.
