expired Samsung Gear S3 Frontier $249 Pickup or + Delivery @ JB Hi-Fi

630

JB have dropped the price down from $269. $1 more than at Harvey Norman, but good for those with JB gift cards or access to discounted gifts cards (e.g. Racq Rewards).

    Really good watch. I purchased one when they dropped to the $260ish mark. It is quite a large watch but so that's something to be aware of for people with small wrists.

    Not saying it is a better option, but it may be of interest to note that grey-import Galaxy Watches are going for around $321 on ebay.

    The lack of Samsung Pay and potential lack of warranty are the obvious issues with an import, but may not be deal breakers for all.

      Yep, I agree. I can’t decide which way to go - this, or import Galaxy Watch. I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos on both, and the S3 with Tizen 4.0 seems to be nearly as good as the Galaxy Watch, but the Galaxy Watch is nearly two years newer and will be supported by Samsung for a lot longer. Decisions…

        I think I am sold on the Galaxy Watch (love the more professional look and better battery life) but the grey import/local question is a tough one.

        Local prices are just so ridiculous compared to the imports though!

        would the grey import have Google Pay on it? I can live without Samsung Pay - what's most interesting to me with Galaxy Watch is the eSim capability, finally a watch that's worth spending money on as it can be standalone.

    heard the software updates are making this watch slow and battery sucker

  •  

    I have the Samsung watch (latest one), and really can't tell the difference. My gf wants this one, does anyone know if it comes in 42mm or is it just 46mm? Thanks

  •  

    Anyone else find this watch chews your phone battery more than other Bluetooth connected devices?

    •  

      Bought one from Officeworks a week ago with 5% price match for the Hardly Normal deal.
      It does hit the phone battery pretty hard for the bluetooth and need to charge it each night or phone will be dead in the morning.

      •  

        mine lasts 3+ days before I need to charge it and it is always connected via bluetooth. but then again I have a huge battery in my phone but it seems the same as it was before I bought it so no difference for me.

        •  

          Me too. I have an S10 Plus.

        •  

          Yeah same here with Note 9.
          I can't say I noticed any difference in battery life on the phone with the watch connected via Bluetooth

            @lachlanww: Off the topic. By any chance, are you using Google Pay on your Note 9? My friends on S9 can see the new Travel Pass option, whereas I can't seem to get it on my phone. Have updated to the latest version as well. Was excited to hear the myki option on phone, but don't know what's wrong with my app, phone or account.

    can someone convince me to buy this please? state your own reasons for purchase. I want it but it seems kind of useless. not trolling.

    •  

      In same boat but struggling to find reasons not to buy.

      Need to charge it constantly.
      Gimmicky, will lose its sex appeal eventually (as did Moto 360).
      Have a free Gear Fit 2 from S7e deal and use it few times a month only.
      Probably wont last more than 3 years of daily use (battery dies).
      I carry 2 phones with my every day so do I really need an additional portal to the information highway?
      I enjoy wearing my traditional watches quite a bit.

      Google lens on the other hand… :P

      avoid buying the s3. Sensors died after 1 year of use which makes the watch unusable. Could claim warranty but that’s not the solution.
      Apart from that it’s a great watch.

        This doesn’t make a lot of sense. Australian stock comes with a 2 year warranty, How isn’t making a warranty claim solving your problem? Also, there were a lot of reports of sensors not working after one of the updates late last year, which were fixed in a subsequent software patch. So, if your issue is software related, it should have been fixed. If your issue is hardware related and your device is within warranty period, it could also be fixed. But fixing things…isn’t the solution?

          The product is a dud and reviews from owners verifies this. Replacement may fix part of the issue but it doesn't make the product any better. Just giving an honest review so potential buyers are aware.

            @kofs2s: Is it? Product Review, the site where people go to complain, has it at 4.3 stars from 200 reviews. Runner Click, 8.3/10 from 43 reviews. Not sure how a dud product gets generally very good reviews from owners. The world is a much bigger place than just your perspective. Unfortunately, there’s not a product in the world that is mass produced that doesn’t have a failure rate. My two year old iPod died. So that makes Apple shit?

              @aja12: you appear to believe that your money spent on short lived products is acceptable - well that's your opinion.
              I am giving my opinion as being an owner of this watch that the purchase could be avoided given the known issues. If people want to spend $250 on a potential short lived product that's their choice.

              I don't doubt there may be numerous great reviews, and I could be one of those positive review writers before issues came to light.
