    Gear S3

    Absolutely loving mine! Anyone not satisfied with theirs and why not? Really excited to see where the things go...

    Now, I'm also and Android and Samsung phone user, so that makes the an easier call for me. I heard they just got the bugs worked out on iOS now too...



    Interested in what people think.

    Couple days. That is with workouts, some calls, and screen always on. I charge it just like I do my phone and just as easy, wireless dock, etc.

    Loving the ability to easily switch bands with normal 22mm bands.

    I think I'll try it with some Nato's...

    Gear S3

    I just got my S3 yesterday - love it! I'm an iPhone user (and former Apple Watch user), and had to wait for the Gear app for ios. So far I love the watch much better than the AW, but the iOS functionality is VERY limited at this point. No apps to speak of. Notifications are one-way (no delete or reply). But... I do like it, and I'm willing live with some growing pains on iOS. In that regard, I'm optimistic that Samsung will be timely in their updates.

    My other watches are: Steinhart Ocean One, Apple Watch, Garmin fenix 3, Garmin 735xt.

    I'm hopeful the S3 will replace all but the Ocean One.

    Would a nato not defeat the hr functionality?

    And probably some of the baked-in security features too....

    Yes, good point, but I don't use this much so it won't be missed.

    Might be an interesting experiment anyway to cut a strategically placed hole in a Nato to see if I can get this working...

    Not sure what you mean by this?
    Interested to know what security features you believe would be affected?

    Always on display, Pin disable while strapped on, Samsung Pay, etc. would all be affected without the sensors in back unable to monitor your humanity... Not sure if the internal sensors would be though. As you say, a good experiment! I prefer Zulus though... :)

    I don't actually like Nato's myself at all. (The left over bit that sticks up annoys me!)
    It's more about securing the device rather than just looks. Defence or emergency services applications would prefer a Nato and probably Velcro for security.
