    I have had a zen watch, and a moto 360 and an apple watch. All first series smart watches. I do have a note 8 im looking to get a smart watch. As in my new job it would probably be frowned upon looking at my phone consistently.

    I do use samsung pay, my question is should i go with this one? or wait for the sport? i do tend to go to the gym and more than anything go into the sauna after every work out. I was wondering if anyone has had any bad experiences based on that. I'm looking to get the frontier.

    Thanks in advance.

    I believe the s3 will have more functionality for day to day use over the sport. I really love the convenience of using my watch for Samsung pay. The major benefit of the sport is the extra water proofing/ resistance.

    I have the Gear S3 Frontier. It is awesome. It can work as a standalone device including calls too, or pair nicely with the Note 8. Here's mine .

    I would not buy it if you're using TMobile. Its been over 2 weeks and mine STILL doesn't work as a standalone. Had tech support involved the whole time and they admit its a problem on their end but they can't solve it. NOT impressed!

    I just bought mines yesterday at the T-Mobile store and I had some issues in the beginning (Linking my number through Digits) but everything works fine. Just because of your experience, others might encounter the same issues.

    My watch can be used as standalone or linked via bluetooth. It works great, Like it alot better than the Apple Watch. Just one complain tho: Apps... Wished the watch have third-party apps (like facebook, instagram, and other quality apps that can be found in the Google Play Store) that ties with the phone just like the iPhone & Apple Watch. I'm just dissapointed that there's barely any quality apps on the Tizen side. Hopefully Samsung does something about the apps.

    Other than that, I like the look of the phone, and some of the apps that the watch has, that the note 8 phone has.
