I still have not started using the Samsung S3 Frontier I got for Christmas on a regular basis to make this an issue, BUT soon I am going to want to combine the data from both my Garmin Vivoactive 3 and the Samsung S3, in one place, so I have an accurate picture of what I did during an entire day. If not, the days I wear the S3 for part of the time will be out-of-place. Garmin Connect and Samsung Health will both claim I did not meet my goals.

I found this APP. I have NOT signed up yet (though it is FREE) because the first review I read said it will not work, AS ADVERTISED, with Garmin Connect and Samsung Health!

So, I need to check it out more.

Just thought I will share with you as I go along. I will keep you posted.

One Christmas Tree Already Denuded & Planted In The Snow — 4 Days Ahead Of Epiphany 2018.

by Anura Guruge

Today, January 2, 2018.

Christmas Day, 2017.

This is a RECORD first.

We are never this early in getting rid of the two Christmas trees — the third is artificial, and gets packed away.

As a Brit I am into the 12-days of Christmas tradition, with Epiphany, and January 6 as the last day by which to take down Christmas trees. Most years we are scrambling on January 6 to get this done.

This year was different. The trees were bothering our eyes. We had to look that up. Yes, Christmas trees can have LOTS of allergens, especially those that irritate eyes — especially in a household of contact lens wearers. Plus, this tree, despite getting watered daily had got very dry and brittle and we already have friends that have DIED from a Christmas tree fire — 3 years ago!

So, out it went.

I Wore My Samsung S3 Frontier For The First Time Yesterday.

This was a kind of combined delayed birthday/Christmas present along with the Google Pixel 2 phone.

After the trouble I have had with my Garmin Vivoactive 3, I did not want to again be without an Activity Tracker on my wrist. Plus, the Samsung S3 Frontier really does double-up as a pretty decent dress watch. And that was how I used to it … when we went to Concord, NH, among other things to see the movie “The Greatest Showman“.

The Samsung S3 Frontier looks good. Wasn’t that heavy. I love the display. Great in a theater. Easy to read in the dark. I loved it.

It is not as comprehensive on the activity/fitness features as is my Vivoactive 3 — and it is NOT meant to be. Heart Rate monitoring is not constant — but more on demand. But, when I go out I would rather the have the S3 Frontier on my wrist than the Garmin.

I have found an APP that will let me combine the daily data from both. I have yet to try it.

I will keep you posted.
