Just narrowly missing out on the top spot overall, the Samsung Gear S3 scored exceptionally well in our tests, earning it the Editors' Choice award for being the best smartwatch for Samsung phones. This model is very easy to use, has a fantastic display, long battery life, and is by far the best out of the entire group at being a fitness tracker. Unfortunately, it loses a ton of functionality when used with a non-Samsung phone, such as no longer being able to receive notifications.
While the Gear S3 is a fantastic watch, it can be a little on the pricey side. If you already have a Samsung phone and our shopping on a budget, then you might want to consider the Samsung Gear S2. This is the predecessor to the S3, having a reduced battery size, less RAM, and lacks an internal GPS but costs about $100 less.
