      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.

      This review isn't really about the product, but about the Geek Squad Certified Refurbished stamp. I ordered the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch. But when it arrived, it would not connect because it had a "ReActivation Lock" on it. This was very obvious when starting up the product. All the Geek Squad person had to do was power on the unit and they would have seen that this product was not serviceable. According to several tech forums, this was a common problem when the watch was first released, but legitimate Retailers (like Best Buy) should now have a process for fixing it before they send it out. I called the Customer noService number, and the first rep I spoke to could not grasp the problem, but she transferred me to someone else who determined that the only resolution was to send out another product. She said it would be shipped One-Day, which meant it should have arrived yesterday, but the tracking number now says it should arrive tomorrow. Additionally, while the unit had no scratches or dings, it was very dirty, probably from being worn for at least several days (or longer). I had to clean it up before I was able to actually put it on.

      zero stars for bestbuy The watch functions great. Just as good as my Apple Watch was, I recently defected from Apple and I have to say everything from the always on display to the MST that is on the S3 but not on the galaxy is years ahead of apple. Battery life is better than my series 2 apple watch and the watch takes my HR every 10mins... this is great tech. Tons of quantifiable workout data right on the main screen if you need it. I bought this watch refurbished. The unit I received has a scratched and bent bezel...it works but I really dont believe this is a refurbished unit... definitely used but not refurbished. The watch was all dusty and dirty like it was never cleaned off... I've purchased refurbished items previously but I must say after this purchase I will definitely give refurbs a second thought - especially with bestbuy. I'm keeping it because I just dont want to go through the hassle of returning the watch ... the watch functions great, the most bezel is just a lil messed up, scratched and dented.

      Ordered this watch on the 24th, received it a week later. I absolutely loved the watch and it looked brand new. Read all the raving reviews about refurbished on here so i decided to save money and buy one. Needless to say 2 weeks later the screen is completely black. I feel the haptic feedback and was able to blindly dial my wife swiping through screens. Brought it into geeksquad and was hoping to swap it out for another one but the same watch is 60 dollars more than when i purchased it. So i have 2 options use my protection plan after only 2 weeks and lose the 60 bucks since id have to buy another protection plan, or return it and and buy another refurbished one which is 60 bucks more. Either way after all this ive spent the same amount of money as if i were to just buy it brand new. Bottom line, dont buy it refurbished, save yourself the hassle and just get it new. I remember the old plans they would actually repair your product or trade it for the same item and you'd still keep your protection until the 2 years ran out. But nowadays once you use it you have to buy a new plan which will add up since mine broke before even having it for a month.

      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.

      Pros: Bezel is the most intuitive way to interact with a smart watch. Alternatively, nice addition of buttons and a touch screen is a plus. Screen is crisp and clear, easy to read. Always on display makes the watch so much more functional as a real watch. Design and form is best in class. Ability to pay from watch means you can pretty much leave your wallet at home. Cons: App Store is severely crippled. Running GPS, music and a workout will deplete battery rapidly. Health app could use some work. Wish always on display would stay on when recording a workout. Bluetooth connectivity inconsistent at times. At first I wasn’t too thrilled with this watch not because of the hardware but because of the software. The App Store is weak and your pretty much limited to what Samsung has to offer. After a couple of weeks of use, I realized you only really need the essentials and if your willing to live with that this a recommended buy. Got this refurbished from Best Buy and the watch was in good condition except for some manly cologne fragrance that remained on the wristband from a previous owner I presume.

      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.

      I really like it. The leather bands were a bit stiff and they hurt my wrists so I got some silicone based ones that handles water better and are more flexible. There are times it seems a bit laggy but that could be due to the fact i don't often restart it. I was able to personalize the screen with personal pictures, the speaker is very loud when using watch to make calls or play music. Battery life is good as well, plus there is a battery saving mode which will make 1 charge last for a few days. Watch needs to be snug on wrist in order to get best automatic show with wrist flick. Overall, I really like it. I got it refurbished and it seems to be ok for the most part. My complaints are minor and not really worth mentioning. E.g. be mindful when sending a quick text from watch because finger may touch the wrong message to send. Also, I see where I sent a response to an email that I never personally did, maybe my hands brushed against the screen and a preprogrammed message got sent in a reply. It is awesome at tracking fitness and giving encouragement. There are even a few games out there for it, so it's a pretty cool watch. The screen is big, I call it perfect. Wish I could make video calls on it though.
