Coolest Smartwatch for 2017

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier could fall into many categories on our site from coolest watch (like our name) to best watch (also like our name).

The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier features:

  • Always on watch face and distinctive steel bezel that you can rotate to access apps and notifications.
  • Text, call and get notifications directly from your Bluetooth connected watch
  • Make payments with the Samsung Pay almost anywhere you swipe to tap a credit card.
  • Built-in GPS keeps track of your activity and makes it easy to share your location.
  • Military grade performance; resists water, dust, extreme temperature and occasional drops.

This watch is surprisingly tough. Not to the extent of our tactical watches but still very respectable for a smartwatch.

Set up is a breeze and not as frustrating as some smartwatches. When set up is hard you really have to wonder WHY it is called a smartwatch. If they are smart they should almost set themselves up. The Samsung Gear S3 Frontier is simple to set up, so maybe IT IS a smartwatch!

It is a little big, depending on your size that may or may not be a problem. I am not saying you have to be a giant, an average size is fine. Just don’t expect a petite little watch. Few smartphones with any battery life and functionality will be small.

This watch as some great speakers. Surprising for a watch.

The watch comes with some good watch faces. You can always download more but it is nice when it comes with faces you will probably like. The faces help make this a cool watch for men or a cool watch for women. There are options that work for everyone.

Answering and rejecting calls works well which is especially good if you are in a car.

Speedometer, altimeter and GPS work well. Again, small watch with great performance.

Screen is bright and clear. Great resolution, again for such a tiny device. Makes you wonder what next year’s models will be like.

You can control your music through the watch and play on your phone speakers.

We chose this model because of its more rugged look. We have this in our smartphone section but this could be in our men’s section as a cool watch for men. It could also be in the luxury section if you don’t mind a smart phone in the luxury section. Personally we do not see smartphones as luxury. Not that they are not nice, we just have a little different set of standards for a luxury watch. However if you choose the classic version of the watch it is a little more classy, mainly because of the band.

Choice is yours.

So how can you go wrong with this great smart watch.

Top men’s watches of 2017

Men’s Luxury Watch Review.

The Carrie Hughes Men’s Luxury Tourbillon Automatic Watch falls in to our top men’s watches category as well as our best watches for men category.

Why, well just look at it; this is one cool watch. Stylish, functional and mechanical. What do I mean by mechanical, just look at the watch face. Is that not a one of the coolest looking watches of 2017?

This thing features:

  • Automatic mechanical movement.
  • STEAM PUNK appearance (which is what we think is cool).
  • Stainless steel case and strap. Mineral glass and 6 HANDS.
  • Water resistant to 1 ATM.

Now the 1 ATM water resistance is a little bit of drag for us. You cannot swim or bath with this watch. Not that we would want to but it is always nice when you do not have to worry about water. That being said, would you go swimming with a Rolex? Thought not.

If you want a watch to swim in, there are plenty of those at Wal-Mart for $5.00 or so.

If you are looking in the best watches of 2017 category you probably do not want to take it swimming or for shower.

We do not have a top 10 best watches for men section yet but if we did these Carrie Hughes Steam Punk watches would certainly have at least one place on the list just for their coolness factor alone.

Remember this is a mechanical watch, something a lot of us might not be used to anymore. Be sure to read the instructions on how to wind the watch. It is not difficult, this process has been done for hundreds of years and should not discourage you in anyway.

This type of coolness and quality are worth the extra work. Who wants to replace batteries anyway? A cool watch for men does not have batteries.
