Works on my 6s+
With my Samsung Gear S3 Frontier it Works seamlessly - I’ve owned an AppleWatch for years but never have I experienced the realistic crisp visual as I have on this Gear S3! I thought w my Apple Watch that I was at the top of the food chain... no, I wasn’t. I can receive all notifications minus the images within text, email and my Ring doorbell/cameras. But hey, this ISNT an Apple product. This app installs/updates hundreds upon hundreds of watchfaces as well as the Samsung Health app cross-communication between iPhone & Gear S3. I can find my watch from my iPhone but not my iPhone from my watch - that [ability] I miss but consider it a small price for what I get - oh, did I mention I have full GPS via satellite or wireless triangulation - yea. Anyway, I’m off my soapbox now. I didn’t mean to bash Apple who by the way; I’ve been a user of since system 7. Anyway; enjoy, like I said - seamless 😉
IT WON’T CONNECT TO MY IPHONE
i tried to connect my iphone xs with the watch but it wont work. The watch shows on the list but after a minute of trying to connect to the watch it disconnects!
Are there any plans in the future to make make some features that are not available to iPhone users accessible? I haven’t opened the box on my Samsung gear but there are many reviews pointing out the limitations. However I’d liked The look of the watch better than the Apple Watch.
