I am ready to buy this and the Note 8. Based on my gear s3 this is all that I want this year for September... Bring it.

I could see it replacing my Gear S3, if it's as good or better, along with the Note8 replacing my S8 Plus. The Gear S3 is easily the best smart watch I've owned, as the S8 Plus is the best phone I've owned. Bring em on Samsung, you've earned my buying dollars.

Last year, I wondered if we'd even see the Note 8, now we're 12 days away.
I hope Samsung uses 4 sensors vs 2, on the Gear Sport. That's the only weakness in the Gear S3, gotta make sure the Watch is in the right spot on the wrist.

Looks like proprietary bands, not good. I'm still holding on to my S2 Classic, best looks and size thus far.
