Nice! I'll probably get the Zen Watch 3 as well so something has to go... I can't get rid of my Urbane 2... That extra ram makes all the difference in that thing! I'm convinced that it's the best Android watch out to date!

I wish the Zenwatch is sold over here, I would definitely get it, mainly for that screen and low price.

Was going to get it until they decided not to release an LTE version in the uk. Far better watch than the Apple offering. And can't believe what T**** phonearena are putting in the option 5

I can't believe you guys take PA seriously. This site is littered with full page ads and doesn't let you comment with adblock turned on.

This shows true side of phonearena. Apple watch is crap when compared to S2 and S3

Option #5 is in bad taste..... but still pretty goddamn funny XD.

I would if the screen was larger, 1.2 inch kinda sucks. 1.6 - 2 inch would be nice. Or at least an option of the bigger model, like a gear s3+. It sounds outrageous but I would love it and would definitely buy it

Have an S2, will get this watch if mine fails. Although I wish I had a lot of the S3's features... Always on, speaker...

LOL Apple watch doesn't do half of what the gear 3 does. Now I think a watch should be just that a watch. All smart watches are just a gimmick JMO of them.

Really, like what exactly can the Gear S3 do that the Apple Watch can't?

In what way does a device that costs more, looks worse and does less equate to more bang for your buck?

I'm going to try it, even though I'm not a fan of Tizen. Android wear has been sluggish and not as compelling as it should be, but i'm not into something that isn't open source and prevalent across manufacturers. I wouldn't even touch it if it was Samsung only, but as long as it works with all Android phones I'll let it slide. I tried the S2 and returned it, the app store was still too small and battery life was too poor, so we'll see this time around.

Wait Tizen is open source Currently has a lot of big names on the Tizen association. There is a rumor that Huawei may come out with tizen based smartwatch over androidwear

Even I'm using iPhone i would still buy the S3 frontier. It looks really good. I just hope they delivered their promise that it will eventually work with ios.
