      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.

      Not too bad

      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.

      Better than Apple Watch

      After following the digital watch craze for several years, finally bit the bullet and purchased a refurb Samsung Gear S3. I feel the technology has finally matured. Here are the reasons why I purchased the S3 Gear Classic: - stainless steel case - battery lasts for 2 days of use - automatic detection of activity - water resistant - though optimized for Samsung and Android phones, it will also work with Apple iPhone with reduced functionality (Apple Watch will only work with iPhone) PS refurb was "like new"; came in plain brown box, not the original Samsung packaging.

      I had held off from buying a smart watch for a while because I couldn't find one with all the features and good apps to have. This watch is great. It has a nice battery life. I get a couple of days out of it. I like that the face turns to help make selection. I think the only thing I would like different that this watch doesn't have is a camera that does live video or camera ability. I haven't used the music feature yet but everything that I have is great and I have added a few apps to help. I plan to buy a additional wrist band to help me with matching earth tone colors. I would have to say following the smart watches over the years this is about the best one on the market to date.

      First, this was a refrb product, so the price was good. I liked the classic dressier design versus the rugged outdoorsy design. I work in an office and rarely do outdoorsy stuff so, the style works for me. CNet and some other reviews said it was HUGE on the wrist. No, see a Nixon. That's huge. It's a normal sized watch. The amazing selection of watch faces is a great feature. Heartbeats measurement is cool, lets me know if I need to kick up my treadmill to get in that next zone. ALso can talk to my contacts via the watch. Altimiter, baraomter, and a host of other tools are available.

      Durable, reliable and better than Apple

      I've had this for 3 weeks and I am very satisfied. Had a Apple watch and in comparison it just didnt do it for me. The Gear 3 has IMHO better looks, function and what I need. Im a gym rat, and wanted something tuff and fairly accurate. So far so good. I also use it at work too. The step counter and challenges are fun.My only complaint is that Samsung does not seem do anything about the cheaters on the challenges. Otherwise my only advice is get a band that breaths.

      LOVE this thing! All the features I could have asked for and then some, nice-looking out of the box, rather than an eyesore you have to struggle to find a band to compensate for, or pretend the hideousness is its own "statement". My gait throws off the vast majority of activity tracking watches and devices, but the Gear S3 Classic is remarkably accurate. One word of caution: if your wrist is as absurdly small as mine (under 5" circumference), you might find the metal body of the watch itself is a bit larger than the width of your wrist. I don't find this uncomfortable myself because of the curvature.

      I bought the watch for my son for his birthday. He recently bought the Samsung Galaxy S9 and wanted a smart watch that looked like a watch but functioned like a phone. He loves it. He wasn't a fan of the leather band as to him didn't feel like it was in proportion to the size of the face as it is rather large (even for a man) I wouldn't recommend this for a woman at all! ... so he ordered a metal band and it looks amazing. Exactly what this watch needed. So my final review would be a 10 out of a 10. He loves it and super happy with it.
