Ever since the original Samsung Galaxy Gear was unveiled back in September 2013, we've seen some of the world's best smartwatches land from the Korean company - but which one should you choose?
With Apple continuing to be a major player, a Fitbit smartwatch in the works and Google recently dropping Android Wear 2.0 for a host of new of smartwatches, the crop to choose from has never been stronger.
If you're interested to see why you should opt for a Samsung device, though, read on to see what's on offer.
Samsung Gear S3 Classic & Frontier
The Gear S3 comes in two flavours, the Frontier or Classic, and both will appeal to very different watch owners.
If you want something with a more rugged, outdoor watch vibe, the Frontier is a safe bet. Although its bulky 46mm frame undeniably makes it a more masculine watch, Samsung has thrown in features such as LTE support and Wi-Fi to help this model become a standalone option.

It's a shame it can't fully embrace water, with its IP68 certified resistance only allowing you to submerge in water of up to 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes, but at least the Frontier can tolerate a rainstorm (or your shower) without any issues.
If you're not looking to take on the elements, the Classic model provides you with a more traditional smartwatch look.
And while both models are bigger than the predecessor, those looking for this smartwatch to be a tracking machine are in luck. Not only can both Gear S3 models offer an accelerometer, ambient light sensor and a heart rate monitor, an altimeter, barometer, speedometer and GPS are also packed in.
One of the more attractive selling points of the Gear S3 is its ability to now work with iPhones, giving you the option to mix with both worlds.
Buy it if you... want an alternative to Android Wear and you like your smartwatches to be big and bold.
Samsung Gear S2
Not everyone will embrace the bigger design of the newer Gear S3, so what's stopping you from taking a look at its smaller sibling?
Wareable verdict: Samsung Gear S2 review
Like its successor, the range offers two variants - the standard Gear S2 and the S2 Classic - with the latter also offering a 3G model and GPS tracking. This means the device is still able to compete alongside the smartwatch heavyweights and assist you with all your fitness and activity tracking needs.
Price: From $249 | Amazon
Buy it if you... want a cheaper, smaller Samsung smartwatch which still packs that all-important rotating bezel.
Samsung Gear Fit2
While the Gear Fit2 doesn't exactly fit in the smartwatch category, as it's technically a fitness tracker, this remains an option since it offers some handy smartwatch, er, smarts, runs Tizen and has access to third party apps.
Wareable verdict: Samsung Gear Fit2 review
So, what sets it apart? Well, the device bucks the crap-display tracker trend with a sumptuous 1.5-inch screen with an eye-popping 432 x 216, 322ppi display. On the fitness side, there's GPS built in for run tracking and an optical heart rate monitor – all for a very competitive price tag.
Price: $179 | Amazon
Buy it if you... want a fitness tracker and a smartwatch but haven't got money for both. Sure, there are Garmin and Polar devices that tick this box too, but none with such an awesome display.
Samsung Gear S
The Samsung Gear S is a standalone smartwatch that doesn't need a smartphone for connectivity, packing its own SIM card slot that allows you to enjoy 3G capabilities once you sort out a contract.
Samsung's biggest smartwatch certainly looks the business, providing a face akin to a Gear Fit2 and Gear s2 merger. It also packs in GPS connectivity for accurate run tracking, further establishing it as a device that can truly act as a smartphone replacement.
And since it has been pretty much discontinued by Sammy, that once-daunting price tag has now been chipped away.
Price: $179 | Amazon
Buy it if you... prioritise smartwatch display, want a device that will let you break away from your smartphone and you don't care about sporting an older model.
Samsung Gear Live
Sammy's debut Android Wear smartwatch, the Gear Live, takes its design cues from its Tizen-toting older brother, the Gear 2 Neo; it's pretty much identical save for the different position of the physical button and the lack of an infrared LED.
It features a 1.63-inch, 320 x 320, display and runs stock Android Wear, in its purest vanilla form. As a result, you can pair it with any Android smartphone.
And while the fresh Android Wear 2.0 update won't be hitting the Gear Live, this is still a relatively sleek option for those looking to get in on the Samsung smartwatch experience.
Price: $89.99 | Amazon
Buy it if you... want to get involved with Android Wear but prefer the way Samsung puts its smartwatches together.
Samsung Gear 2
We're stepping further back into Sammy smartwatch history with the Gear S2, which upped the style stakes over the original Gear, adding a classier edge to the first generation's plastic finish; giving it a classic timepiece styling that's often neglected on smartwatches.
It also boasts a lovely, 1.63-inch, Super AMOLED screen with a 320 x 320 resolution and a 2MP camera for wrist-shot photos on the go.
Price: $169 | Amazon
Buy it if you... like to take photographs from your watch and view them on a healthy display.
Samsung Gear 2 Neo
The Gear 2 Neo is a (average at best) fitness tracker and notifications system in one and there's a built-in heart rate monitor to boot. Sure, it might not have the camera of the top-of-the-line Samsung Gear 2 watch but for our money, that's no great loss.
For simplicity, the Neo has got all the best bits of the Gear 2 (i.e. that gorgeous display) and none of the nonsense (i.e. that camera).
Price: $149 | Amazon
Buy it if you... like the idea of tapping into the Tizen revolution, but don't have the budget or wrist strength to take on the Samsung Gear S, S2 or S3.
Samsung Galaxy Gear
The original and, well, the worst. The Galaxy Gear is very much a first-gen device that screams, “we beat Apple to market". It has screws on the front. Screws. Actual visible screws.
It also has a camera, which is of no interest, we're quite sure. What is notable is that, although it was originally an Android powered device, it now runs Tizen and the plethora of apps Sammy's in-house platform affords you.
Price: $199 | Amazon
Buy it if you... like collecting first generation devices. There's really no need to own the original Gear smartwatch.
