Isn't it amazing on how they engaged professional watch designer to design the physical aesthetics for their gear s3? I'm aiming for the frontier version if the price is good, if not, nah.

Because they got professional watch designers for this s3. Many luxury watches are 46mm. Thus this s3 doesn't look like a typical smart watch and also not like a gadget.

I think it's not gonna be cheap too.

Shouldn't cost lesser than $600 maybe.

confirm is not cheap, S2 wasnt cheap either. this is one is bigger so more material plus the position as a watch will definately command higher pricing....

I was about to get the Huawei watch. But after looking at the frontier model I am leaning towards getting this..

Like that I'll give it a pass unless our telcos are ready for e-sim which I feel they're not.

Will stick with my Urbane 2 LTE.
