Love the look of this smart watch. At £299 I might have pre-ordered but will wait to see what deals are around after launch I think

I agree with you, £299 would be better. Not sure how much the Bluetooth headset is worth.
I can't work out if this is Bluetooth/wifi only or if this is the model that you can put a SIM card in.

Hot thanks. The headsets are around £75 to 100.
I want the Frontier purely for the rubber strap.

Not sure if you can get the rubber strap on the classic as well, I like the silver finish on the Classic.

just ordered I also thought the Frontier is LTE but I don't want that function.

I understand any standard 22mm strap can now be used.

I just bought the level u pro ANC replacing my standard level U Pro, doubt the active is as good but it's free and on eBay a day later.

Thanks that's useful. I have ordered the Classic with black leather strap. Thanks

I like the look of these, heat added

Cool sold my S2 within 30 mins on putting it on eBay, two weeks without a smartwatch now : (

can you put a sim i this and use it without your phone nearby

Did anyone who ordered when this went live yesterday get a confirmation as to whether they're one of the first 1,000 who receives the free earphones?

Just ordered now and no mention in my email or order tracking about the earphones so wondering if I'm too late?

I ordered as soon as the offer was received via e-mail and got no confirmation in relation to the headset, I just presumed I was one of the first 1,000. You've got me wondering now.

Only the LTE version can take a sim, I don't see the LTE option in the pre-order offer.
It's all a bit confusing.

​Same here I ordered the Frontier but more as I prefer the style and strap, but could find no information on how the LTE Frontier works, recall in the US with the S2 eSIM you had to take out another SIM contract.

I got no confirmation of the headset

The LTE version won't be available in Europe.

I have just ordered the Classic and when I go to the Order tracking page, I see 'Samsung Level Active Running Earphones (FOC) (Black)' is included.

I would prefer to order it with another strap, but there doesn't seem to be an option to do this, I would really like the 'Carbon Pattern Leather Khaki' strap (1st choice), or the 'Tuscany Dark Brown' (2nd choice), but I can't even see these on the UK site, only on the USA site. Do you know if it's possible to get these in the UK?

As a gear S2 actual user (not a 2 day user on a youtube sponsored vid) , would you recommend the gear line as a daily replacement for regular analog watch user?

Appreciate your opinion

Thanks - I've just placed a second order (checked that I still get the earphones) and then cancelled the first order :-)

​Flattered. Hmm ... I've owned all the Gear watches upto the S2 (just sold) and git my wife a Gear Fit 2. Prior to that I loved my analog watches, but pretty immediately loved the smartwatch thing.

I personally find smart watches so convenient in terms of the glance type function as opposed to endlessly checking your phone in and out of your pocket.

I bought my sister and Apple watch i find that overcomplicated and the battery is dire.

I find the Samsung has the right basic balance of notifications without overburdened apps trying the mirror everything on your phone. I think Samsung would do the same but frankly beyond basic apps the app store is crap.

The clincher for me is battery life, I could easily get 4 days 5 really publishing it by using my watch 12 - 14 hrs a day then switch off when at home (night time), but then they added the sleep monitor back and I wore it 24/7.

My advice buy from Samsung direct, try it you may find you love it or its pointless if so just return within 14 days for a full refund, state on the return slip change of mind.

Discount code no longer working. Can anyone help with a different one? looks a nice watch.

I don't think there are any codes for the watch. The code mentioned is for the 360 gear

Edit: Also quidco now at 3%

Edited by: "Walker10" 31st Oct 2016

I've just checked Quidco - it was at an 'exclusive 7%' rate when I ordered, although the tracking says that it has been captured at only 3%, so I've submitted a claim here quidco.com/new…ry/

Hopefully you get it changed.
Notices these are now showing as out of stock with no expected delivery dates either

Tried to figure it out on XDA I think there are 3 versions and as always the UK only get 2, the actual LTE eSIM version I believe we won't get which begs the question what LTE advertised function does the Frontier get or is this the mother of all marketing blunders

Anyone checked their order status?
Showing as discontinued ??

Also the watch itself is showing as out of stock too

Ah I see - yes, mine is the same.

I just phoned Samsung on 0330 726 7467. They confirm that my order is valid, so I will get both the watch and the earphones.

They also said that the straps shown on the USA website (http://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/gear-s3/design/) aren't available in the UK and the person I spoke with didn't know if/when they would be available here.

my order also confirmed even though showing as discontinued.

I got mine, but wondering if they only have a 1000 to sell if we are all being told we got a confirmed order (inc level active).

Does anyone know if you get the wireless charger with the watch?
The description page says charge your watch wireless but doesn't mention it's optional but when ordering there was an option to buy the wireless charger separately

Samsung are accepting orders again for both Gear S3 watches for delivery 18 November. The free earphone offer is now open for first 3000 pre orders before 10 November.

Eagerly waiting for my S3 to hopefully not get recalled, sold my S2 so smartwatch less

Yes ​It looked to be the same style as the s2

Cold from me. UK Quidco only tracks at 3%, not the 7% advertised.
