Samsung's newest smartwatch comes in two forms, the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier, with the latter also offering optional LTE connectivity. Both are big, feature-packed and nice to look at, so long as you're a fan of bigger watches. If you're ready to pick up the latest in wearable tech from Samsung, we have all of the resources for you right here.
Gear S3 Classic
The Gear S3 Classic is the more traditional (and slightly more gender-neutral) model of the two, closely following the look of the Gear S2 Classic. It has all of the same features (aside from optional LTE) of the Frontier, and the same price. Pricing is set at $349, barring any sales that different manufacturers may offer. You can buy directly from Samsung, or from several other retailers.
Gear S3 Frontier
The Gear S3 Frontier is a bit more rugged looking when compared to the Gear S3, though it's the same overall size. With a more gnarled bezel and dark color it definitely leans more masculine, but is still a looker nonetheless. You can find it for sale everywhere you'd find the Gear S3 Classic, with the same suggested retail price of $349.
Gear S3 Frontier LTE
The LTE-enabled version of the Gear S3 Frontier has all of the same core specs and features, but has the added ability to work with its own connection independent of your phone. This of course means that you have to pay for cellular service for your watch, but in turn will be able to stream media, keep apps updated and take calls all on the watch.
These models are specific to the carrier, so make up your mind about which to go with (it's best to use the carrier you already have for your phone) and then pick the Gear S3 Frontier model that coincides with that. AT&T offers a discount if you want to sign up for a two-year contract, but other than that prices may fluctuate more often with these carrier models, so shop around.
