Samsung announced no less than three new wearable devices at MWC 2014 last week: the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smart watches (both running Tizen OS), plus the Gear Fit smart band. The company didn’t reveal the prices of these new products, only saying that they’d be available starting April.
Now, however, Sam Mobile seems to know how much the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit will cost. Since Sam Mobile is an European website, it provided the prices in Euro. Here they are:
- Samsung Gear 2 - €299
- Samsung Gear 2 Neo - €199
- Samsung Gear Fit - €199
One of the main complaints regarding Samsung’s first smart watch, the Android-based Galaxy Gear, was its launch price: $299. While it looks like the Gear 2 won’t be cheaper, at least the Gear 2 Neo is going to be more affordable. Of course, there are still many users who don’t see the point in buying a smart watch. But those who do will soon have new options to choose from, and one of them may cost less than $200.
