The best thing about the Samsung Gear S3, be it Frontier or Classic, is the almost unlimited supply of watch faces to choose from.
If you’re going to a formal event, you can load up your classic style watch faces. For working out, you can load sporty watch faces that shows your heart rate, calories burnt, and the number of steps. Or maybe you just want to relax and play some games? Yep, there are watch faces for that, too.
However, with so many to choose from, how do you know which one is the best?
Well, we made that simple for you. To narrow down your list, we compiled the best Samsung Gear S3 watch faces that you can get for every single event or occasion\

The Best Samsung Gear S3 Watch Faces for Every Occasion
We divided the best watch faces that into three categories: Classic, Sporty, and Fun. Each category will have three paid-for and free watch faces. All of the prices that will be mentioned are as of 07/03/2019 and may vary over time.
Classic Watch Faces
First, and our personal favorite, the Classic-themed watch faces.
These skins are, as you already know, best for formal gatherings like weddings, office events, corporate meetings, and a whole lot more.
1. The Gentleman – $0.99
This classic style watch face is created by BERGEN, one of the top sellers of watch face themes for Samsung smartwatches.
The Gentleman also works for the Gear S2 and the Gear S2 Classic. Its functions include the 12-hour Mode, day-date-and-month, step percentage, and battery level.
You can get The Gentleman from the Galaxy Store.
2. Dijon Gold – Free
This classy and modern design is created by Peter Krisán. The image above shows a different smartwatch, however, it is very much compatible with the Gear S3 and other Samsung smartwatches.
The Dijon Gold features an analog-style watch, and it shows the date and the current battery life of your smartwatch.
You can get the Dijon Gold watch face from Facer.io.
3. WWC Schaffhausen Portofino – $1.99
For a sleek and elegant style, the WWC Schaffhausen Portofino is perfect for any black and white suit that you can find.
This watch face features an analog display, with a white backdrop and gold accents. If you’re worried about your battery life because of the light theme, the WWC Schaffhausen Portofino changes the background to black in AOD mode to save battery life.
The WWC Schaffhausen Portofino is available at the Samsung Gear app.
4. Millenium Black – Free
The Millenium Black is designed by GAUSS, one of the best watchmakers in Germany that also creates smartwatch faces.

Sporty Watch Faces
It’s important to have the basic features of a typical sports watch incorporated into your watch face. Often, the screen should show at least your current number of steps, the time, and current weather conditions – which was how these watch faces were chosen
1. Nike+ Round – Free
Nothing says sporty like a good Nike watch, right?
However, the Nike+ Round isn’t an official watch face created by Nike. If it were, we highly doubt that it would be free. Don’t worry, though! The Nike+ Round has all the features that you need for a good run.
It has a digital display with a 12/24 hour format options, and it shows the date, battery life, weather, and the number of steps.

2. Health Monitor Azure [Animated] – $2.03
As expected, sports-themed watch faces are a tad more pricey compared to other designs, and for good reason.
The Health Monitor Azure is created by FRISS, a top seller of health and fitness watch faces. It features the heart rate monitor, steps count, your steps goal, burned calories, water intake, battery life, and more — all on the home screen.

Fun Watch Faces
Initially, we considered changing this category to “casual” instead, but you most likely already have those.
Before anything else, everything on this category is only available at Facer.io. We tried to look for “fun” watch faces on the Galaxy App, but we couldn’t find anything that was actually fun.
So, if you want to get the premium watch faces in Facer.io, you will have to sign up for Facer Premium for $4.99 a month ($49.99 per year). From there, you will have unlimited access to all of their premium watch faces.
Now that that’s settled let’s get on to the fun part!
1. LightBox – Free
First on the fun list is the LightBox by Veertualia.

You can get the LightBox on Facer.io for free.
2. The Final Frontier – Premium
Yep, you saw that image right. It’s a Star Trek-themed watch face! But not only that, this one is officially made and branded by Star Trek.
This design is excellent for a casual day, but it’s best for a Star Trek movie night or marathon. It has a simple analog clock display, with a neon blue minute and second hand.

The Tetris™ Handheld is officially made by Tetris for all the easily-bored people out there. This is perfect when you have to wait for a long time, or when you’re in a meeting (just kidding, don’t do that).
Just don’t forget to look at the time, though, which is still displayed on the screen, together with the watch battery life and date.
Want the Tetris™ Handheld? Get it on Facer.io today!
5. Rugged Black & Red Right Tilt –Free
Okay, the Tetris one is going to be difficult to follow, so don’t judge us on this one.
We added this on the list because red and black are some of the best colors that you can play with if you want to have fun outside casually. Plus, it matches Deadpool’s colors, so you also have that going for you.
The Rugged Black & Red Right Tilt shows the time, date, battery life, and your number of steps. It also features a 12/24-hour format, and an analog and digital display.
