Fairphone 3+ and Samsung Gear S3 Frontier


currently I have a Samsung smartphone and I consider switching to a Fairphone 3+.
I also have a Samsung Gear S3 Frontier smart watch and I wonder if this will fully work with the Fairphone.
Means: will all features of the smart watch work also on a Fairphone?

Best regards


Anyone can answer my question, please?

This is a community forum. Not Fairphone the company.
It could be that there isn’t a user who has the combination of devices you want to use.


Maybe a good idea to ask Samsung what software is needed for a compatible phone.

I know that this is a community forum, but my hope was that there is a Fairphone user that already has a Samsung smart watch.
So I was asking.

I contacted Samsung and they answered:

The Gear S3 is compatible with the following Android smartphones:
Android OS 4.4 or higher with min. 1.5 GB RAM

So this smartwhatch is working technically with the Failphone.

I had a look at the Samsung website (here the German site): Samsung Gear S3 | Highlights | Samsung DE

There I see that some features (like phone calls, answering messages) might not fully work.
So this was the reason, why I asked here (if anybody has more experiences with Samsung smartwhatches).
