Quick Ship Electronics is certainly part of the latter group, with a stellar 99.9 percent positive feedback score based on over 25,000 customer ratings from the last 12 months, and for a no doubt limited time only, its killer recent deal on an open box Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is further sweetened with an even heftier price cut.
If you hurry, you can get the Android and iOS-compatible wearable device for $149.99 with a 1-year warranty included, which makes this thing about as reliable as a brand-new unit fetching $300 at Best Buy or on Samsung's own US e-store.
Obviously, these are not all-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged items on sale here, but other than shipping with "distressed" packaging, they should be essentially identical to new units in terms of both functionality and their cosmetic condition. At 150 bucks, the Gear S3 is an arguably better deal than the Galaxy Watch Active, which typically costs $200.
Despite its advanced age, the substantially marked-down device comes with a handy rotating bezel, a large and sharp Super AMOLED display (which is not necessarily a strong point), as well as everything from a built-in heart rate monitor to standalone GPS functionality, Samsung Pay support, and a massive battery capable of keeping the lights on for 3 to 4 days on a single charge (at least in theory).
Bottom line, this is an incredibly feature-packed, arguably stylish, powerful, and versatile smartwatch that defies the years, looking like an excellent bargain even with yet another new Samsung wearable right around the corner.
