What Users wants from upcoming Galaxy Gear S3:

Based on Users demand we have concluded few must have features for upcoming Galaxy Gear S3 and we think you will also love to see these features in next Galaxy Gear:

1) 1.2 and 1.5 inches Screen Size: The Galaxy Gear S2 comes with 1.2 inch dial size which looks perfect for most of people, but this year Samsung should come with 1.5 inch variant for people having larger wrist size.

2) Better Voice Integration over Watch: Samsung has implanted its SVoice application but sometimes the voice integration will not work accurately. This time Samsung should upgrade its SVoice to next level as Google Voice Search.

3) Sleep Monitoring and Alarm: The Galaxy Gear S3 should have an improved Sleep monitoring system that automatically calculate and recommend sleep hours according to number of calories burn and present health data. Also include a powerful alarm system with Gear S3.


So, these are some recommended features based on present reviews and user expectations for upcoming Samsung Galaxy Gear S3. For now its time to wait for official launch which s just couple of hours away from here and see what Samsung has for us.

    500$ is too much samsung……I want to buy s3 gear but its really very expensive for any 75% of your costumers……Sorry samsung

  2. Mike Willison

    I was interested until I saw the price point. At $500 US I will just bump it to $600 and double the battery time (worth it alone) and get real water proofing from Garmin.

  3. BC

    Not for me.

  4. Patrick Dorestan

    I doubt they will put cameras on the watch cause some asshole will try and take a pic under a women’s dress or something to that effecte

  5. GooseDog

    Strava integration please

  6. Check out

    LOL they have models with cameras go check gear s, gear 2, gear

  7. JOHN

    Samsung Gear S3.
    Was interested in an Gear S3 until the projected $200.00 increased selling price .
    A difficult market for most makers of wearables and a price increase of over 66 percent.
    From $300.00 to $500.00 US. Sorry Samsung.

  8. Audrey Mahan

    I’ve had every Samsung watch but I won’t buy another one if this is the price point they are going with. The S2 3g was to expensive but at least it wasn’t $500 US.

  9. Gdom

    My list of required features:
    1) Better battery life
    2) Better battery life
    3) Better battery life
    4) Better battery life
    5) Better battery life
    6) Better battery life

    I love the Samsung Gear design, but until the address the above features, I will be sticking with Pebble watches.

  10. Jay LaBacz

    I would like them to add a speaker back into the watch like it previously had on the Gear 2 Neo. Why pay for a 4g add-on plan when you can use the watch via bluetooth as a hands free device.

    • Charles

      They did add a speaker on the s3 like Gear 3 Neo.

  11. Chase

    It’s useless riposte a camera on it

  12. Paul

    Suggest some of the key things will be; Waterproof so you can swim with it. Microphone and and speaker so you can make calls etc. Agree that a long battery life is vital.

  13. Bryman

    1. 4G LTE instead of 3G/HSPA+
    2. Accurate Pulse Ox measurer (validated to be within 95% accuracy using other medical grade devices)
    3. Ability to share pedometer with friends continuously (similar to Fitbit devices)
    4. Ability to send text messages using Google voice…similar to Google search on smartphone.
    5. Always on time screen….similar to Galaxy s7 phone.
    6. Samsung Pay on watch.
    7. Improved battery life.
    8. Ability to find your phone using watch or vice versa.
    9. Wrist band to be solar powered.
    10. Kinetic Smartphone.

  14. Amy

    Is the gear s3 going to have constant heart rate monitoring vs the gear s2 that only has 10 min or 1 hr monitoring. Does the gear s3 have telephone capabilities like the gear s2 connect?

  15. Mark queen

    When are they going to start integrating cameras in smart watches. That what I would like to see.

    • Chase

      I will never buy a smart watch until they put a camera on it

      • Frank

        They did but with the first Samsung “Gear” but due to legal regulations and poor quality it’s been pulled from designs.

    • XcerptShow

      Did you see the early gear? Why would you want a crappy cam on your watch? How would you aim? Consider the size on your wrist for just the lens alone. The watch should augment the phone so you have to pull it out less often. The spinning dial is an amazing feature(so much better than apples nonsense). Im glad they realized the screen was too small to be navigating. They just need to keep working on battery life. 4 days is a good start. The always on screen is awesome as well. It was annoying to look at your wrist and have to touch it to turn on screen.
