If you’ve been after a big Samsung smartwatch but the new Galaxy Watch is still a bit too pricey for you, Amazon has got a very good deal on its predecessor the Gear S3.
The Gear S3 Frontier, which is the sportier version of the S3 is more than $100 off with the watch dropping to $219.95 for the US version. The international version, which doesn’t come with a warranty, is even cheaper at $197.98 and there’s also a refurbished version available for $194.59.
It’s a 46mm watch so matches the size of the biggest Galaxy Watch model. In terms of features, you’re getting an Android and iOS-friendly smartwatch that runs on Samsung’s own Tizen OS. It packs a 1.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, built-in GPS, a heart rate monitor, an integrated microphone and speaker and that signature rotating bezel. You can also expect around 3-4 days battery life so you won’t be charging it every night.
Essential reading: Samsung Gear S3 v Samsung Galaxy WatchIn terms of the big things you’re missing out on from buying the newer Samsung Galaxy watches, you’re not getting a fully waterproof design, swim tracking and some extra exercise tracking modes. If you can live without jumping in the water with your watch, there’s still a lot to like about the Gear S3 Frontier.
In our Gear S3 review, we praised its design, battery performance and improving S Health performance. We did knock it for the disappointing app support and that lack of waterproofing, but overall it’s still a decent smartwatch despite launching in 2016.
At $200, you can essentially pick this older smartwatch up for the same price as the incoming Samsung Galaxy Watch Active and swimproof design aside, still offers great value for money.
