What are The Differences?

Features compared
  1. Design
  2. The appearance of these three smartwatches is the major differentiating factor, The Gear S3 frontier has a compact and spectacular classic, same with the LG Urbane 2nd edition. However, LG Watch sport comes in an intuitive sporty design which makes it best adapted for fitness activities. Though that’s not a major deciding factor, you can easily change the appearance of the Gear S3 by changing the Straps.

    Worthy to note is that the Gear S3 is the slimmest. It is only 12.9mm compared to LG Urbane 2 and Watch sport which are both 14.2mm thick which is quiet too thick..

  3. Cellular Network
  4. All the three are standalone smartwatches that let you make and receive calls independently from the watch. However, the Gear S3 doesn’t support up to 4G connectivity, while on the Urbane 2 and Watch sport it is fully supported.

  5. Battery
  6. The Gear S3 has the best battery life amongst the three. On mixed usage battery live exceeds over a day while the Urbane 2 and Watch sport battery life on mixed usage falls below a day on single charge. In that regard, the Gear S3 is the best choice for extreme sport routines.

  8. While the Gear S3 runs on Samsung’s Tizen OS, a proprietary OS, both the Urbane 2 and Watch sport run on Google Wear OS which no doubt has the advantage in terms of diversity and access to your favorite apps. Though, Samsung have recorded some great improvements in their Tizen OS with recent updates.

    Which Should You Buy
