Any luck with trying this out while kiteboarding?airsurfer wrote: ↑Thu Jun 08, 2017 5:45 amI've read the posts about other surf watches but I already have the Gear S3 and like the fact that it works as a phone too. Anyone tried kiting with it yet? just wondering if it will hold up. Also I've had 2 Garmin GPS watches that only lasted about 6 months of kiting so I'm a little skeptical of waterproof claims of electronics.
Friend got fenix 5X he somehow managed to break thing in back that measures heart rate (ceacked) even it is much smaller then on version 3
I had this exact choice. Touch display is not so responsive when wet, waterproof is no good at all. No warranty when with saltwater damage. Also when had both in hand samsung was shinny toy, while garmin more like military style something little similar to what I like in Panerai wathes ( dont have one )..ianridesnowaves wrote: ↑Mon Dec 18, 2017 8:23 amWell after doing a lot of research I narrowed down my options, for what I'm looking for out of a watch, to the Garmin Fenix 3 and the Samsung Gear S3. A friend of mine has been using the Fenix 3 for the last 2 years kiting with zero problems. The only thing stopping me from getting the Samsung Gear S3 is whether or not it's as durable as the Fenix 3. I want the Gear S3 because I love riding on the water listening to tunes and the features I want overlap with the Fenix 3 AND it has MP3 capability.
