In India, Gear s3 is out of stock on both Amazon and flipkart. It's gone for good probably and no one cares because it was prices stupidly. I hoped Samsung learn and price this Gear sport with smaller first gen screen wisely but that doesn't seems to...

Yes, 5 hours of audio streaming on the IconX is well worth the buy - this I'm getting even with the hefty price. The fact the Gear Sport watch can store Spotify downloads is something as well.
