Especially among those of us who are more acutely focused on staying fit and in shape, the rise of smartwatches has taken technology outside and made it an integral part of our daily lives. Don’t think a smartwatch is an ugly and useless accessory if you’re less active, though.

Samsung’s Gear S3 Frontier is the latest in Samsung’s range of smartwatches, and a very attractive addition, indeed.

The Gear S3 Frontier has a beautiful stainless steel case, and you can change the wristband to suit your wardrobe and taste by buying additional straps from a range of colours and styles. Choose from nine display modes, including regular watch faces, heartbeat monitors and pedometers. A clear 1.3 inch AMOLED screen is bright enough to view in any lighting, and the colour display is especially vivid.

The circular bezel is what makes this watch a pleasure to operate. Turn the bezel to switch between menu items and apps, to answer or reject calls, control the volume and display brightness, or turn off alarms, among other things.

Being a smartwatch, the GPS functionality tracks your runs, rides and activities like the elliptical, squats, rowing machines and lunges. A built-in altimeter, speedometer and barometer keep track of your elevation, speed and the weather, and the watch is water-resistant for up to 1.5m and 30 minutes, and dust-resistant too. The Gear S3 Frontier has 4GB of storage space, and listening to workout playlists through Bluetooth earphones means you’ll never need to lug your phone along.

Depending on usage, the battery life could last for up to four days without charging on its stylish wireless dock.

The Gear S3 Frontier can be paired with a variety of Android and iOS devices, and is compatible with over 10 000 apps.
