I have decided to let go the S3 and to go back to a Casio Atomic ABC.
The pro of the S3 are:
Quality of construction.
Hard to scratch.
Great attention to design.
Great phone on your wrist.
Bezel used is clever.
Great alarms vibration and sounds.
Timing function are lame and battery consuming.
Not really water proof.
Energy consuming with no warning.
GPS is unreliable on the long-run.
What's made me drop the ball is the third time something trivial ate my battery in 5 hours.
It happened with Samsung stopwatch draining all my battery. Then some faces unidentified draining 60% of the battery in 4 hours...
It means the S3 was not reliable in energy consumption.
Sometimes I need to hit the road and I need to count on my timekeeper. Thinking I got 80% and finding I got 30% necause of some stupid energy bug is not what I want from my trusted equipment...
Also I get tired of unreliable GPS tracking which for no reason stop to record... Endomondo was so buggy. Even when draining my phone battery...
So all in all, despite its qualities the S3 is in my own experience a Nice gadget but a unreliable watch.
Samsung are not watchmakers, they are phone makers.
