Best Buy offers refurbished Galaxy Gear smartwatches for $89.99, shipping is free
If you are on the market for a smartwatch, then Best Buy might have exactly what you need. Well, if you are looking for a refurbished Samsung Galaxy Gear, that is. At the moment, the latter retails at $89.99 on Best Buy. The only color option that is available is jet black, but the refurbished wearable will be shipped to you free of charge.

Some ten days ago, Samsung began the rollout of a substantial update to its Galaxy Gear, which changed the very operating system of the wearable – Google's Android got replaced with Tizen, the company's own mobile OS. Thus, the Galaxy Gear received some of the features of the Samsung Gear 2 and the Gear 2 Neo, which are powered by the same OS. This brought the company's first smartwatch almost on par with the newer gadgets.

If you consider this a nifty bargain, then head on to the source link and claim your Galaxy Gear before it goes out of stock.

An Absolutely Fantastic Deal. I bought my Galaxy Gear with my Note 3 on release day and the combination has been a technological revelation... True Information At A Glance. It often seems that the majority of those bent on lambasting the Galaxy Gear are those who are ignorant as to its capabilities and/or simply can't/couldn't afford one... at least this deal eliminates of of those 'excuses'.

It can only be used with Samsung devices so that makes it useless. There's better smart watches out there that can do much more for about the same price.

Like what? Answer call? Voice SMS? All apps notification? To me the only con is exclusive to Samsung phones. That's they learn from the best, the big apple. iWatch will also be exclusive to Apple iDevices.

That price is tempting but I don't know if I will have a Samsung phone by years end. If they can somehow upgrade the firmware to Google Gear it would be a better deal.

Too bad it can only be used with Samsung phones...

It's time Samsung changes "Galaxy" to "SamiVerse" as more and more it is turning into a walled garden that resembles Apple's way of doing things.
