    I've had the AW2 for several weeks and my co-worker just got the Samsung Gear S3 last week and I am so surprised at what it can do that the apple watch can't do. Apple had the opportunity to do the same but they make these little incremental changes and compared to Samsung they are so far behind that I wish I had the Gear S3 but I love my iphone 7....come on Apple get with the program!!!

    What are some of the specific things your co-worker's watch can do, that the AW cannot?

    The s3 can be thicker and heavier, and it's not burdened by having a lot of apps. Also, you don't need to wear it while swimming since it's not swim proof, so that's one less thing to worry about. No complications with live info on the Watch face mean the S3 can be touched more to in order to see useful info.

    If you need Uber, ESPN, and Bloomberg apps, you'll love the S3 because they are easy to find since there aren't many other big apps for it.

    I'm curious (really, not polemic) to know what are the things that S3 can do and AW cannot do

    I fee like this is a troll post since no specific examples are given.

    The Gear S3 can do MST and NFC Samsung Pay which is very convenient.

    This is subjective but the Gear S3 with its round design, classic timepiece design, and ability to take any 22mm band is designed better & looks way better than AW, which to me, looks like a Fisher Price toy.

    Thanks goodness for subjective opinions. That S3 is too 'loud' imo, not something I would ever consider wearing.

    That said, obviously - each to their own.

    And no examples provided on why you believe the S3 can do what the Apple Watch can't? This doesn't open much up for discussion.

    Who wants to show the OP how many different bands (and straps and bracelets) are available for the Watch?

    Does the s3 require a standard watch strap? I change my Apple Watch band at he drop of a hat thanks to how easy it is to swap out.

    That's what I like about the Apple Watch. I change my Watch band daily and the security of the Watch band is confirmed when you hear the click.
