The Gear S3 Frontier and Classic come with rubber and leather bands respectively and while they’re good enough, many smartwatch owners tend to go for the obvious customization option which is to use a third-party band with the device. There are great third-party options available online some of which we have included in our list of best bands for Gear S3 Frontier and Classic.

Why you should use a third-party band with your Gear S3

Using an aftermarket band is perhaps the only way that you can customize the physical look of the smartwatch. It’s easy to replace them as well so you can mix and match them with your outfits to complete your look. It just makes good fashion sense.
