Poll: Will you be buying the Samsung Gear S3?
posted by Joe M. / Nov 04, 2016, 1:18 PM
The Verge has also reported that the Gear S3 will officially be available everywhere in the US starting on November 18, and what all this essentially translates to is the fact that the Gear S3 is finally almost here. With that being the case, we wanted to find out what your plans were in regards to getting Samsung's latest smartwatch.It was announced just yesterday that the watch would officially be up for pre-order in the US starting this Sunday on November 6, but as we learned today, AT&T has already started accepting pre-orders for the device.
Samsung's Note 7 might have been an explosive disappointment, but the Gear S3 looks to pack a tremendous punch. It comes in two variants - Frontier and Classic - so you've got options if you want something that's rugged or if you prefer a design that looks more like a traditional timepiece. The rotating bezel provides for an easy and intuitive way to interact with the UI, and support for Samsung Pay means that you can use the Gear S3 to pay at virtually any store thanks to its use of both NFC and MST technology.
However, all of that tech comes in at a pretty hefty cost. The Gear S3 will sell for $349.99 for both the Frontier and Classic models, and if you want to get the LTE version on AT&T, you'll need to pay $17.50/month on an installment plan or $49.99 with a two-year contract. The LTE model will also be available on Verizon and T-Mobile, but we've yet to get pricing info for those models.
In any case, with all of that said...
Will you be buying the Samsung Gear S3?
Yep, gotta love classy look of the Classic
Heck yeah, Frontier all the way
I'll wait until the reviews come out
No, too expensive compared to the competition
Nope, I don't want my arm to explode

It is a beautiful watch. However it is running Tizen. If it was running Android Wear, then I would buy it.

Ok let's think about it; there are millions and millions more Samsung phones and Samsung phone owners than there are Apple iPhone owners. There are also wayyyyyy more different types of android phones that aren't Samsung phones BUT will work with the Gear watches. So given that there are SO FREAKING MANY more people that could buy a Gear watch than an Apple Watch YET THEY CHOOSE NOT TO, does indeed mean the Apple Watch is better. Because people ACTUALLY WANT THE APPLE WATCH. Unlike the Gear watches. And yes, I have both an Apple Watch (original version) and a Gear S2 AT&T 3G version, so I know both watches very well.

Exactly, there was no reason to put that on the list it has nothing to do with what happened with the note 7. Ir just shows even more how thus should be called iphonearena and how low class this site's writers can be.
