Samsung Gear Sport vs Gear S3 Frontier vs Classic: Which is Better?

The Gear S3 duo being standalone smartwatches allow you make and receive calls directly from these devices and are more comprehensive smartwatches. Moreover, there’s microphone and loudspeaker on these two which the Gear Sport lacks, and as such lacks voice assistant features powered by Bixby.

VERDICT:Although more expensive, the Gear S3 duo being more comprehensive are better bargain.
