When I first got the Gear S3 Frontier I was very pleased with the rubber watch bands it came with. It fits the sportiness of the S3 and straps the smartwatch securely to your wrist so there are no worries while jogging or doing other activities. But what if I want to wear it with more formal attire, like with a sports coat or even a full suite. This is where I’m happy that the Gear S3 is compatible with most 22mm bands!
On my Gear S2 I purchased a black stainless steel band with links, so was looking for a similar one for my S3 Frontier. While going through Amazon, I zeroed in on the one that had the best reviews. It was very similar to the one on my S2, less than $20 and free shipping with Amazon Prime so thought I would give it a shot.
I was very happy I did! This metal band is a few millimeters wider than the S2 one I have, which is a good thing for the Frontier since it is a larger watch. Everything looks proportional from the face to band. Installation was a breeze because it comes with all the tools you need to quickly remove pins and take out links for smaller wrists like mine. After removing the amount of links you need, just pop in the main spring loaded pins that attach to the watch and attach the band. Done.
Putting on and taking off the watch is so quick now! Just press in the two buttons on both sides of the clasp and slide on or off. This is great for a developer when testing watch faces. Not to worry, the band also keeps a secure connection and I haven’t had any issues with it unclasping while in use.
This band raises the bar when it comes to the classiness of the Frontier at a great price! Now I would definitely wear it with a sports coat or even a nice suite. Since the bands are easy to swap out, can use the stock rubber watch bands for activities like jogging, going to the gym, frisbee in the park, and then be able to transform the S3 into a time piece I can wear around the office or even to a formal event. Also, it was below $20 with free shipping since I have Amazon Prime.
