Samsung is partnering up with SLG Design and Strap Studios to give every Gear S3 classic or frontier owner out there more ways to personalize their smartwatch.
That said, these watch bands throw in a touch of style in the mix, creating a perfect blend of fashion and functionality out of the Samsung wearable.

With 15 straps made out of Italian leather that range from $29 to $39, Strap Studio has an impressive and affordable selection.
According to the designer, they’re all fitted with “easy change” spring bars, and thanks to that, Gear S3 owners can easily swap from one band to another in a jiffy.
The available color options include Nagano Beige, Nagano Black, Tuscany Black, Seta Dark Brown, Nappa Orange, Seta Acacia Brown, Tuscany Tan, Nagano Medium Brown, Nappa Dark Blue, Tuscany Dark Brown, Nagano Dark Brown, Seta Navy, Nappa Pink, Nappa Green and Seta Grey.

Just like Strap Studio, SLG Design is bringing a slew of bands that are crafted with genuine Italian leather.
From $49 to $109, the company’s bands vary by patterns and textures, including wax canvas and carbon designs.
That said, Gear S3 users can choose among the $109 D+ Italian Carbon Leather Strap (Black, Khaki or Navy), the $69 D6 Italian Minerva Box Leather Strap (Black, Blue or Brown) and $49 D+ Wax Canvas Strap (Black, Khaki or Navy).
Long story short, Gear S3 owners now have more options from Strap Studio and SLG Design, and because of that, they can really customize their smartwatches beyond the faces and whatnot.
“Working with brands that understand the value of quality and recognize the importance of good design, Samsung’s collaborative efforts have resulted in beautifully crafted bands for every budget and style,” Samsung says.
Of course, there are some other third-party makers for Gear S3 bands in the market, but since Strap Studio and SLG Design are endorsed by Samsung, they more or less have the South Korean company’s stamp of approval.
Before wrapping things up, it’s also worth pointing out that the Gear S3 and Gear S2 work with iPhones via the leaked Gear Manager for iOS. Needless to say, Apple fans can join in the fun even without a Samsung phone. However, the Gear S3 doesn’t exactly play nicely with the Google Pixel.
