I'm looking at purchasing the Samsung gear watch from Sprint. But I need a heart rate monitor like I heard the iOS watches do. So I'm asking well this automatically record my heart rate throughout the day ?

The S3 measures HR periodically. I have mine set to hourly, but there are other options. It can also track HR continuously during specified exercises.

The S3 isn't designed to work on Sprint. Why buy it from them?

Mine has since day one. I actually like the feature because you can review the recordings at the end of day and i'm able to tell when I was active, excited or inactive. There are times where doesn't take a reading every hour because of how loose I wear the watch, but other than that you should be good. I recommend the watch even though others suggest not. If you continue to wait there will always be something coming around the corner. Take the dive, you won't regret it.

A word of advice : wait the android wear2.0 models to be released.

Do you even own the watch? There's always something coming around the corner and quite frankly the Android Wear 2.0 models i've seen lack appeal in the aesthetics category. Here's one....why not wait until Wear 4.0 comes out?

Thank you for the information,

now to answer your question: because Sprint is who I have had for my provider for over 10 years, I am NOT looking to use it is a separate phone, I have that now with my Gear 2 and I never have used that feature in 2 years.
