Samsung's Gear S3 is quite possibly the best smartwatch you can buy right now if you're an Android user. The design is classy, the display is gorgeous, battery life is above average in the category, Samsung Pay is supported, and the rotating bezel makes navigating the menus less cumbersome than tapping on a tiny display. Plus, props go to Samsung for making Tizen a compelling interface on smartwatches. But for $349 straight up, the S3 Frontier is one big investment that equals the price of a very nice midrange smartphone. If you've had your eye on one but couldn't pull the plug, you may want to check this refurb from Best Buy's Geek Squad for $184.99. At nearly half the MSRP price and quite less than refurb prices on Amazon (around $269.99), this isn't a half bad deal. Last time we saw the refurb drop in price, it was $209.99 in February, now it's even $25 less. For that, you get the Gear S3 Frontier in black with a 46mm stainless steel body and silicone band.

Samsung is reportedly working on a brand new smartwatch that should succeed the Gear S3 series (launched in late 2016) and the Gear Sport (released in October 2017). According to SamMobile, the new watch has the model number SM-R800, and might be called Samsung Gear S4. For now, though, this name can't be confirmed. At the moment, there aren't many details about this alleged Samsung Gear S4. However, it's said that the watch should - unsurprisingly - bring upgraded internals, as well as enhanced fitness capabilities, including more accurate sleep tracking. Similar to its predecessors, the Gear S4 will most probably run Samsung's own Tizen OS, thus it's not going to be a Wear OS watch.
