The Samsung Galaxy Gear was a decent product when it was announced back in September. However, lack of proper compatibility with other smartphones (including Samsung’s own devices) and the steep pricing didn’t really help drive the sales forward. Shortly after, Samsung brought down the original $300 pricing to $250 in a bid to attract more customers.
Today, American retailer Best Buy is offering the smartwatch with a $100 discount, bringing the price down to just $149.99. This is clearly the best pricing for the smartwatch and should help drive the sales forward as well. Samsung recently slashed the pricing of the Galaxy Gear in some regions, so a price cut in the U.S. was much expected.
The smartwatch is compatible with a variety of Samsung devices today as long as they’re running on Android 4.3 with Bluetooth 4.0 LE. Hit the source link below for more on this deal. It appears to be a limited period promotion as well, so if you’re interested and own a compatible Samsung device, make sure you give this deal a thorough look. At the moment, Best Buy is selling the Lime Green, Oatmeal Beige, Wild Orange and Rose Gold variants of the Galaxy Gear.
