Best Buy selling refurbished Samsung Gear S2 units for as little as $141
Best Buy is now selling refurbished Samsung Gear S2 units at notable discounts. If you're on the market for a smartwatch that stands out from the crowd but cannot afford to pay for a brand new Gear S2, then this should be an offer to consider.

Both the white and the black elastomer versions of the Gear S2 are available at just $140.99, almost half than what a brand new Samsung Gear S2 costs.

If the sportsy look of the elomaster bands doesn't suit your style, then you might be interested in the Gear S2 Classic, a smartwatch that's equipped with leather bands but maintains the stainless silver body. Best Buy is selling refurbished Gear S2 Classic units at $171.99. Free shipping is included and you can also opt to pick up your unit from a physical store.

These products have been refurbished by Geek Squad and come with warranty. Note that the units are in like-new condition, although the retailer says that minor scratches might be present.

If you can live with the idea of a refurbished product, the Samsung Gear S2 is actually a tempting smartwatch at this price. The Tizen-based wrist piece comes with specifications such as a beautiful 1.2-inch Super AMOLED display running at 360 by 360 pixels, an Exynos 3250 Dual chipset with a 1.0GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of integrated storage space, and a 250mAh battery. The most notable feature of the Gear S2 is its rotating bezel, one that allows users to easily navigate the menus and the apps.

If this seems a good deal to you, make sure to read our detailed Samsung Gear S2 review before placing a purchase.

The Gear S2 MIGHT be worth it if it was free, but as long as you have part with even one cent, the watch isn't worth it. Horrible app selection, it's already abandoned by Samsung, and the fact that it looks and feels like any other cheap 'sports' watch, even in Classic guise, means pass over the S2 and get any other smart watch. You'll be glad you did.

That explains why I didn't like or buy the S4 or S5. Or why I've said several times that the original Gear S (which I did buy) was pretty crappy. See, I'm not blind fanboy like you with Apple. The Gear S2 is a great watch. You can fault the lack of apps,, but not the build or function, which are both top notch.

I agree with you @tedkord. It's a very decent smart watch with great battery life and a very well thought through OS and I score samsung very high for how it's software works seamlessly with the hardware. My only gripe with the gear S2 I bought is the very poor choice of material Samsung used for the proprietary band that is now broken (including the spare band in the box). The perfectly functional device is sitting lonely in my wardrobe as I type this. At least until I can get the recently released band adapter or alternative proprietary bands on amazon or eBay

Got can get them now. I have a nice stainless steel link band on mine. This is it. https://img.xda-cdn.com/bom22fVWl9-PY6vUsSAJ0ZwUPZA=/http%3A%2F%2Fuploads.tapatalk-cdn.com%2F20160627%2F6fa188bd2c69ca58ba1e493098db5e05.jpg I don't like the rubber type bands. I also have a nice leather band.

Lol, you're cute. If it's so good, how come not even diehard Samsung lovers are buying it? Please, prove me wrong by posting the S2 sales figures. I'll be waiting...

What do sales figures have to do with anything? Are Fords the best cars? Are McDonald's burgers the best? The Note 5 didn't sell the most, but it was the best phablet available. Still is.

"Eye roll", consider it this way; there are a lot more Samsung Phones that will work with the Gear S2 on the market world wide, than iPhones that can work with the Apple Watch. So by that logic, more S2's should of been sold, not to mention overall it is a much less expensive watch to purchase than the Apple Watch. So if the Gear S2 is such a superior smart watch AND has a much larger base that can purchase it AND overall it's not as expensive to buy, it should have sold more. So again, someone please post S2 sales figures.....

You don't know how many have been sold, and the entire smartwatch market hasn't caught on. They're largely considered a solution looking for a problem. You're basing your entire argument on numbers you don't have. That's how silly you sound.

Not just any Note 5, only mine lol. Finally got 6.0.1, and it's made it a much better device than it already was. Much improved battery life also. Awaiting my birthday present this Friday to pair to it, a Gear Fit 2. I sold my Gear S.

I wish I were gonna be 21. My only issue with 6.0 1 is the continuous scrolling Web page bug, but it hasn't done it today, and it's only on PA. It may not be a bug at all, just the site. My Gear Fit 2 is here now, but I can't get it till Friday. Review coming soon.

PA's mobile site is just garbage, though I've never seen the issue you're talking about. Worst of all is they just won't fix it.

Careful, Mxy will call you a Samsung ball hugger. Thought you loved the Gear S. If you don't mind my asking, how much did got get for it?

I do love it, but it's not gonna be supported much longer, and I wanted to try the Fit 2. I got $150 for my Gear S.

Smart Watches are great, for me they're very convenient. I love that they allow me to keep my phone in my pocket, and still execute some essential commands.

I haven't noticed improved battery, this I didn't get as lucky. But it's fast and smooth, and I put it in the charger whenever I'm near one, even if I don't need it, so I seldom get below 60%. Damn, I've got to figure out a way to find your YouTube channel. Are you an XDA member? Any other tech sites that have PM?

If we can talk privately, no problem. I'm just not gonna give away that info here, far too many idiots, I'd rather not have in my comments section. Look at what they do here.

I dunno, some fans dont have to own every single product their favorite OEM releases. I like "some" of Samsung's products. That doesn't mean I have to buy all of them. Just liek I liek the Chicago White Sox and bulls, but I don't buy tickets to every single game. I personally don't care how many they sell. I bought mine and that one is the only one that matters to me. Oh and Apple hasn't posted any sells of the Apple Watch either. All we have seen us guesses based on how many Apple shipped. Considering everyone has a firesale price on the Apple Watch, I'd say it isnt selling so well either. SO ME APPLE CONFIRMED SALES FIGURES. Just like you are asking. Unlike you, I'm speaking from an ownship experience. I'm soeaking of having sat with several options from Android wear, the Apple Watch and the the Gear S/S2. They are all a waste of money and offer no major benefit if you already have a smartphone. Hwoever, I do love gadgets and I found the gear S models which have cellular capabilities, which other options don't; was something I wanted to own, but its pricing structure sucks. if I had known BB would have refurbs offered at 50% off, I'd waited. I got a good deal from T-Mobile on 2 of them. I bought one and got one free, so I came out on top for the most part. I love using it, it comes in handy when I go out and I don't want to take my phone. I never miss a cal or text. When I ride my bike, again I don't have to take my phone. But as with all these items, app are scant, all the apps wont work outside having the phone. They simply aren't worth more than $150, which is why I wont ever buy another. I have the Gear S and S2 and I'm satisfied.

Oh and even though the gear S2 isn't the sales king, it received the highest ratings on 90% of blog sites and it was the top device in its category, even over Apple abomination. That's all good enough for me. I dont care how many are sold. So far I have yet to see a single Apple Watch in the wild. I've seen to being worn where I work. I know, because I gifted one. yet I have seen 4 Gear S2's in the wild and many other alternatives including the Moto 360, the Microsoft Band, the Gear fit and plenty of Fitbits. NOT ONE SINGLE APPLE WATCH!!! Show me confirmed sales!!!!!!!! YOU CANT...CAN YOU. Here is a rule, never ask someone to do anything, that you can't do.

Oh please, you never see any Apple Watches "in the wild" because you never go anyplace.

Here's a wacky thought: Instead of asking people to prove you wrong, maybe make an attempt to actually prove your own assertion?

That would require facts, which are all against his argument. He's got to rely on blind fanaticism.
