Samsung is expected to unveil the Gear S3 later this year, it hit the ball out of the park with the Gear S2 as it was a truly revolutionary smartwatch, which is why it’s going to have to do an even better job with the Gear S3 as fans now have a lot of expectations from Samsung’s smartwatch department. It’s unclear right now what sort of changes Samsung is going to introduce with the Gear S3 but we’d like to know how you’d feel about a larger successor to the Gear S2.

The Gear S2 classic and Gear S2 are 40mm and 42mm in diameter respectively. Most modern watches are sized similarly but over the past couple of years, there has been a push by consumers towards bigger watches. Customers have moved from largely preferring 38-40mm and 40-42mm watches to bigger sizes like 42-44mm and 44-48mm. Some of the most iconic Swiss watch brands like IWC, Breitling, and Hublot now have many 48mm models in their portfolio so it’s not going to be surprising if Samsung bumps up its smartwatch to this size and subsequently increases the display size which will result in a better user experience as more screen real estate is always welcome. So, what do you think, should Samsung stick with 40-42mm or should it get with the times and embrace the current trend in the watch industry?

Update: The poll has been closed and the results show that 67 percent of voters would like the Gear S3 to be bigger and feature a larger display, while 33 percent believe that Samsung should stick with the size of the Gear S2 for its next smartwatch as well.

Of course, Samsung could always produce several versions of watches (size, design…) as it always done with its mobile devices.

larger display and more accessories, A SPEAKER IS A MUST, A MIC, HR, LIVE TIME HR STATS, MAKE IT MODULAR, LIKE THE BEZEL, BIGGER BATTERY AND WATCH THEMES WOULD BE A HUGE PLUS, MOTION GESTURES LIKE ANDROID WEAR.

I’d like it to stay as it is. Whatever they do, they need to fix their strap design problems.

The small screen with dat bezel surrounding it is a deal breaker. That’s not the only reason why I didn’t buy it. Speaker and strong vibration motor are missing..

They don’t have to change the screen size of the S3–just make a version that’s bigger. One size doesn’t fit all.

Gear s3 must have at least 4.5 inch screen ( hehehe )
