Samsung Gear S3 Frontier vs Huawei Watch GT vs Fitbit Versa: Which is Better?

All three watches look very stylish and elegant, but the Watch GT and Gear S3 have got more outstanding designs than the Versa.

Moreover, the AMOLED display of these two is richer and more beautiful to watch compared to the LCD display of the Versa. Although, the Versa will be easier to read outdoors compared to the other two.

The Gear S3 has the most features, it has NFC, Wi-Fi, and onboard storage, unlike the Watch GT which lacks Wi-Fi and NFC and the Versa which lacks inbuilt GPS. Although, you can still access GPS features on the Versa by connecting to your phone GPS. This can be quite inconvenient if you’re working out outdoors.

Going by battery life, the Watch GT will last about 2 weeks which is a lot more longer than the Versa and Gear S3 with about 4 days long battery life. As such, the Watch GT is the best choice for tracking extreme workout activities.

VERDICT:Although all three watches are outstanding in design and being comprehensive fitness tracker, but the Gear S3 being a more comprehensive smartwatch with quite impressive long battery life is the best choice for me.
