Good price for the Sport watch. Still prefer the Frontier, looks better, and more like a real watch than the sport, but of course it’s built for swimmers whereas I’m a climber. Lol. 7 hours battery life on IconX is very good if it comes to that in reality. Still prefer my wired earphones. Quality is just not as good on Bluetooth.. It’s incapable of high bitrate.

I can see why there’s a price difference. It’s not better, just different. It’s a lightweight watch with excellent capabilities but it doesn’t look half as good as Gear S3, particularly the Frontier. I’m not even a bit annoyed!

I’m guessing the software update for the Gear S3 will come in December then. If not early next year.
