"I'm thinking of buying Gear S3 for running, but was wondering what is app support for audiobooks? My intention is to leave my phone at home and run only with Gear S3. Made it clear that I want to run only with watch and without the phone."

With a full-color OLED display, long-lasting battery and great features, Samsung Gear S3 is a brilliant smartwatch to buy. It is also the best alternative to Apple Watch. Gear S3 has a built-in speaker that lets you make or take calls right away. You only have to turn the bezel to respond to calls, to read messages, to scroll through apps you need.

The Gear S3 can work with iPhones as well as Android handsets. With a built-in Music Player, the Samsung Gear S3 allows you to listen to music saved on the Gear and on your phone. This feature lets you enjoy your music files while running out without the phone.
