4G LTE standalone connectivity only available on Samsung Gear S3 frontier version, a companion for compatible Android smartphones, sold separately. Standalone connectivity requires initial pairing of Gear S3 frontier with compatible phone and separate qualifying wireless plan. Standalone functionality limited if paired phone is not powered on or connected to a wireless network. Network coverage not available everywhere. Consult carrier for details.
For best results, Samsung Pay on Gear S3 requires network connection through LTE, Wi-Fi or via Bluetooth pairing with compatible smartphone. After Initial setup, Samsung Pay on Gear S3 can make at least five transactions without reconnecting to a network. Samsung Pay on the Gear S3 is only compatible with select cards, carriers and Samsung devices and non-Samsung Android phones; see the Samsung Pay Support page at -pay-gear for compatibility information.
The Gear S3 puts convenience at your wrist, with Samsung Pay providing the ability to make mobile payments virtually anywhere you can tap or swipe a credit or debit card. With Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) support built-in, Gear S3 users will be able to make a purchase with Samsung Pay which is widely accepted across the U.S. Samsung Pay on Gear S3 protects credit card information with the same advanced security as Samsung Pay on a Galaxy phone, using tokenization, Knox and PIN protection.2
I used the Gear S3 for over a month paired to a Samsung Galaxy S7 (read my initial impressions here) and then recently via the iPhone 7, using Samsung's new iOS smartwatch-pairing app. Read on for everything that Gear S3 does right, and where it stumbles.
Android Wear 2.0 is just around the corner, and new Android watches could be everywhere. Samsung's concept makes some successful executions, and some notable hardware improvements, but not enough of them to be the ultimate watch for everyone. And it hasn't gotten any easier to use.
Samsung Pay: Adding Samsung Pay to the Gear S3 doesn't just enable tap-to-pay at the same places that usually accept Apple Pay or Android Pay. It has MST, a magnetic technology that's also on Samsung's Galaxy phones since the Note 5 and S6, and it works at any credit card terminal. It's essentially a use-anywhere virtual credit card, accessible with a double-click of a button. It works by sending a timed ping that works at vending machines, terminals or anywhere close to the credit card reader. (The Gear S2 added Samsung Pay, but only the NFC kind.)
At 59g the Gear S3 Classic might not sound heavy, but it certainly feels it. And that makes sense when you consider that the Apple Watch 3 weighs anywhere between 26.7g and 52.8g and the Samsung Gear S2 is even lighter at 42g.
However, Samsung's voice assistant is nowhere near the level of Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri or Google's Assistant. For instance, it can't answer questions such as "Are the Knicks playing tonight" or respond to commands like "Directions home." It will tell you corny jokes, though.
Problem is if you don't use Samsung's S Health app it seems the log statistics get lost after a while, that it doesn't store too much on the watch itself only the last couple weeks. I don't want to use S-Health on Phone but would like to keep periodically saving the pedometer+heart rate data from gear-s3 watch so that the older data doesn't get lost.
The Gear S3 can store your credit card information, so you can use Samsung Pay almost anywhere you go without taking out your wallet. With military-grade performance, this device can withstand dust, water, extreme weather, and the occasional drop. (Also, unlike some smartwatches, it looks like a normal watch.) 59ce067264
