Apparently, Bell Canada took the master butcher's knife to the original Samsung Galaxy Gear's price. As its successors, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo now reign supreme, the once-$349.99 Galaxy Gear is now a mere $99.97 on Bell's website. This is $50 cheaper than the original Pebble, and almost $150 less than its steel-clad version. Although the Galaxy Gear only pairs with Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets, at $100 that's a lot of smart-watch for the money. But do keep in mind that the checkout is limited to three items per user.
On the US side of things, Best Buy already sold the Galaxy Gear for $149.99 for a day, but most retailers are still keeping its steep price tag. Hopefully Bell's drastic price cut is a sign for upcoming clearance sales that will make room for Sammy's new Gears in retailers' warehouses.
