      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.

      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.

      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.

      Learned My Lesson on Buying Reburbished Item

      More like a USED item. Finish missing on dial. Screen has visible spot. Dried skin cells on band. Disgusting. NOTHING in package but the watch and a charger. Not even a pamphlet. This is supposed to be like new. I understand missing packaging but this is shameful. Arrived dead. How can it be refurbed if dead. Not even going to bother setting it up. This is used merchandise with visible wear, like flea market quality. Does not match your definition of refurbished. Save yourself the disappointment and buy it new. Sad and disappointing and going back.

      Unacceptable condition

      I have owned plenty of refurbished products over the years that have been satisfactory to be called refurbished. This was not the case with this refurbished watch, it was heavily scratched, and disgustingly dirty. I found dirt and grime from the previous owner as he/she had just took it off after wearing it for an extended period of time. It's hard to believe that they would not clean the item prior to working on it. I would be extremely embarrassed if I sent out a product looking like this to a customer, common decency would be to at least give it a cleaning before shipping it out. This shows lack of concern for the consumer approval and lack of quality in presentation.

      Product arrived damaged

      I bought a Samsung Gear S3 Frontier Smartwatch by online, but it arrived damaged with big and deep scratch in the smartwatch area (I send the picture). Also around the scratch area is damaged too in the surface. It was a Refurbished product that I both online, but I was not advised before the purchase that the product had a big damage and it was not in the site described. I will be returning it today in the Best Buy store most close to my house. I was my first refurbished purchase in only Best Buy (unfortunately no good experience).

      Great watch, POOR Refirbish

      This is not a review of the watch, but on the "Refurbished" process. The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is a GREAT smartwatch. I ended up buying a new one from Best Buy and could not be happier. However, I will never buy a Geek Squad Certified Refurbished item again based on this experience. The watch was NASTY. "Sweat Dirt" and dead skin stuck to the underside of the bands. Watch was just really dirty and well used. Is cleaning and replacing the bands not part of being refurbished? I'm not sure what they did to refurbish but it was it unacceptable. All the other items just in a zip lock bag and tossed in the box. The price difference between new and refurbished is not worth it.
