The smartwatch that started it off for Samsung, the Galaxy Gear is now available for a decent deal via woot.com. The online retailer is now offering the brand new version of the smartwatch for $160. This is a $140 discount from the original asking price from September, so it’s a decent deal. The smartwatch is compatible with a wide range of Galaxy devices, as long as they’re running Android 4.3 and up, so this could be worth a look if you own a compatible device.
It’s normal to be hesitated in getting an older generation device especially when a refreshed model is launching later this week. However, the new Gear 2 still costs $300 and considering that both devices feature pretty much the same hardware inside, the deal is clearly worth a look.
So go ahead and give the listing a look if you’re in the market for a companion accessory like this. Of course, there are plenty of other deals available for the smartwatch at the moment, as we recently found Best Buy selling it for $149.99.
