Nope, but a factory reset is an option:

Hard reset (experts only)
If you forget your screen lock PIN, you can perform a hard reset and restore your device to factory settings. Your personal information cannot be recovered after using this feature.
1: Turn off your Gear S3.
2: Press and hold the Home key until REBOOTING displays at the bottom of the screen.
3: Press the Home button repeatedly until the Select REBOOT MODE screen displays.
4: Press the Home button until Recovery is selected, and then press and hold the Home button.
5: Keep holding the Home button until the Gear S3 begins rebooting.

@DAZ5: If you have set your own personal PIN then the default PIN will not work unfortunately. I recommend visiting a Samsung Support Centre with a copy of your proof of purchase, and an engineer will be able to assist you further. To find your nearest one please check the following link, select 'Mobile Device > Phones, Tablets and Wearables' and enter your post code.
