    Dang that S3 sure looks good. And both MST and NFC for Sumsung pay.

    I agree with the Frontier. But the new Classic looks like an ugly downgrade. And they're iPhone compatible, there goes the neighborhood.

    46mm is just too big... I have small wrists and 42 is about as big as I can go... guess this is out... probably switch to Android Wear at this point, actually have apps and things worth using.

    Sure, and the S2 is supposed to work at NFC Samsung Pay terminals, but I have yet to hear from someone who's made it work in the real world....

    (Or, in other words, I agree new watches look cool (I love the idea of being to write notes on the screen), but Samsung's lost some credibility with Samsung Pay still not working on S2.)

    Members here have reported the S2 works with Samsung Pay, mine does.

    From Samsung:
    The South Korean company has also announced that it will distribute a new firmware update for both watches before the end of the year packing all of the new software features that debuted on the Gear S3.
    Samsung announces a lot of stuff, doesn't mean those things ever happen.

    I'm always calm. I also have an S7e and two S2s (both free) and no unfulfilled promises from Samsung on any of them.

    Maybe but the 3g versions will require carriers to approve and update. And that means Verizon will not release it until they find a way to monetize it.

    The S2 is to get updates by end of the yr. I think the S3 is too masculine looking for women and too big looking. I wish Samsung would cater to women too. I had the Gear
    S. Now the 2S. The 3S too big

    Same. Feeling very thankful that they made the s2 in the size that they did. Looks like i'll be owning it up until the battery allows. Hopefully in 2 years there's a small one again!

    A killer new feature that I didn't see in most reviews (covered in "TrustedReviews" video) is that the persistent display now supports a zillion more colors so looks more like a high quality watch face all the time. Tempting, but still looks enormous on a skinny person's wrist...

    I'd be happy if they could have done a version with no Samsung Pay that was the same size as the 40mm S2. There is literally no new smartwatch under 44mm right now.

    Except the Apple watches (which sell MUCH better).
