    I've got an S3 and it looks like the only changes are improvements to water proofing now mean you can swim with it in, and compatibility with Samsung SmartThings.

    Also, looking at the Samsung Watch web page, under the apps section, there is an app image that is the Strava logo, which is a massive omission from the current S3.

    You do know the 42mm has a much smaller battery than the 46mm?

    I actually prefer the look of the old Frontier. The Galaxy watch has smoother/smaller ridges to the bezel etc. Plus i would want the 46mm in black. Do you think that will be offered in the future?
    I actually have a Apple watch 3, but much prefer the look of these watches.
    I was thinking there might be some great Gear S3 deals coming up soon.

    Same here. Have been waiting a while for this and then it nearly snuck out without me noticing.

    Is anyone getting a screen protector?
