Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch Review

Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatch Review

Despite having been around for a few years now, the smartwatch still finds itself in a slightly awkward and (some may argue) precarious position. The launch of the Apple Watch has helped increase its fledgling awareness but I would still consider smartwatches to be a niche produce (and I own one!). However, Samsung does not appear to share my views and has been very active in releasing new devices in attempts to entice consumers further. Its latest offerings, the Gear S3 Classic* and S3 Frontier, look to build upon the Gear S2 (still available for purchase as the cheaper older sibling). Whilst the Frontier is aimed more at the 'adventurous' wearer, I will be reviewing the Classic, the 'base' model and determine whether it is a worthwhile investment. Read on to find out.

New Home

Firstly, many apologies. It has been far too long since my last post (15th May for those keeping track) although in my defence, I do have a good/decent/okay reason. In between and around life and work (and often times during) I finally managed to navigate the minefield that is property buying and eventually completed this arduous and tedious process to be in the legal possession of my very first home. Yes I know, I can't believe it either...

Photographing Yosemite National Park with the new Sony a6300


The mother-trip of all mother-trips had to be paired with the best gear I could afford. Good thing Sony announced the a6300 six weeks before I was due to travel with its newly developed 24MP APS-C sensor, super-fast autofocus and 4K internal recording. Take my money Sony. Take my money.

Take a gander at some of my photos of one of the most beautiful places on Earth and be the judge of Sony's latest £1000 machine.
