Authenticity in design
The Gear S3 looks and feels like a real watch, but does more than a regular watch and without requiring any extra effort on your part. The features that already exist on a watch, the bezel, the crown and the crystal, can be turned, pressed or tapped for convenience, fun and pure freedom from your phone.
The Always on Display gives the Gear S3's 1.3-inch Super AMOLED display the look of a true watch.
Choose your watch face
Transform the appearance of your Gear S3 just by changing the watch face. With 15 preloaded designs and more available at the Gear App Store, it's a matter of choice.
The circular bezel is what makes the Gear S3 so effortless to use. Its beauty is in its simplicity. And it's the strong and premium stainless steel favored by traditional watchmakers that give the Gear S3 the durability it needs to take on some of the most adventurous outdoor activities.
Calls from your wrist
Wear the Gear S3 and free your hands from your phone. Take and make calls with the Gear S3's built-in speaker, check voice messages and hear the alarms you set. *Bluetooth model requires a paired smartphone to make calls.
Samsung Pay any time
You're now able to buy a bottle of water or pick up the dry cleaning, almost anywhere you can swipe your card, even if you don't have your phone or wallet with you. Because Gear S3 supports both MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) and NFC (Near Field Communication) payment technologies.
Songs to go
Put on your Bluetooth headset and listen to your songs or stream your playlist. Keep your workouts going, your trip jazzed up. The Gear S3 has 4GB of internal memory so you can take your music with you, without the weight of your phone.
Download apps right away
You can now access the Gear App Store right from the Gear S3 and download all the apps you need and the watch faces you want.
Say it out loud
Whether you need to do a web search, call or text someone on your contact list, just say the word. For those errands you have to run, that appointment you don't want to miss, activate S Voice to have Gear S3 set reminders for you. It will tell you when it's time.
From running to mountain climbing, the Gear S3 collects your activity data and keeps you on track. It also alerts you to changes in atmospheric pressure, so you can keep an eye out for weather changes. Step up on the elliptical, row your way to health, take steps forward or cycle away.
Your Gear S3 auto-tracks six types of exercises from the get-go. When your Gear S3 is synced with the S Health app, you get detailed information and long-term reports on your workouts. And when needed, you have a step-by-step guide right on your wrist.
Notify your emergency contacts
Just press the home button three times. You can immediately send your location to predetermined people of your choice who will then be able to track your whereabouts in real time.
No need to charge every day
With the Gear S3, you can go for up to four days before putting it down for a charge. Its battery lasts that long. When the Gear S3 needs a charge, just set it down on its wireless charging dock. Just like that. And you don't even have to wait long, because it charges fast as well.
Resistant to water and dust
Wear the Gear S3 out in all kinds of weather, to all kinds of places. It's rated IP68 so it's able to withstand dust and dirt and being up to 1.5 meters or for up to 30 minutes underwater.
