Samsung's new Gear S3 promo clips are stunning!

The Samsung Gear S3 is among the most popular smartwatches out there, and for a good reason. It's sturdy, beautiful and comes with all the functionality you could ever want from a smartwatch. Not to mention that it's a joy to use.

Despite it being hugely popular, just like any other consumer product, it needs its fair share of advertising and promotional campaigns. And Samsung, being as classy as it is, has provided us with a new trio of gorgeous ads for its flagship wearable.

The first one takes the Gear S3 on an extreme journey through the Andes, as Brazilian journalist Pedro Andrade and actress Mel Fronckowiak climb all the way to Macchu Picchu. Their treck 4,600 meters above sea level resulted in some breathtaking shots.

The other two are targeted towards the modern everyday life in the city, with one of them showcasing the wide variety of styles the Gear S3 can assume, and the other following the British actor and singer Raleigh Ritchie through a busy day of workouts, music performances, and parties (inevitably followed by a late-night after-party).

Unfortunately I returned mine to Best Buy after less than a week. I decided that I much prefer my Gear S2 Classic. The S3 Classic was just too thick and design wise, it's a step down from the S2 Classic in my opinion.

Yeah, I refuse to buy a smart watch until they get a lot thinner. I sort of chuckle to myself when I see the S3 on people's wrists... it looks ridiculous.

The S3 Frontier is understandable because of it being a watch mainly aimed at those who spend a lot of time outdoors; I'm sure the thickness adds a lot of durability. But the S3 Classic should have been left the same size as the S2 Classic, with a few design tweaks here and there.

Your opinion. We all have different tastes. I love mine. I have had all the Gears. While not perfect, the Gear S3 Frontier is beautiful. No need to chuckle when you see the watch on other people's wrists. I guess you are being childish.

Unlike you we are not insecure, nor do we think a slightly chunky watch is 'ridiculous' on people's wrists. I can quite assure you that I like them do not care what you think. Keep chuckling to yourself, or grow up. Any reply you make will not be replied to by me or even read so I wouldn't waste your time.

I loved thick and bulky watches just like all my Rolex and Breitling. Thin is just too girly for me. This might be my first smart watch.

I have to agree; S3 feels like a step down from the S2 design.

did you notice that only the men wore the watch in those videos?

I do think the gear s3 and some of the others look better on men. I think the iphone watch looks better on women.

Nope. The woman was wearing it too.

I like the S3 design, sure it could be thinner, but not at the expense of battery. 4 days is acceptable but I wouldn't want any less. 1. I still like having payments on it so I can go to the grocery store after a jog and not need my phone or wallet. 2. I also like taking calls on it while driving or cooking, more convenient than anything else. 3. Saves my phone battery when i don't have to turn it on to look at every notification that comes in. The only negative is that active heart rate reading are not very consistent. It does fine at low resting heart rates but seems to have a hard time at anything over 100.
