Deal: Verizon shaves $200 off the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8/S8+ when you buy the Gear S3

Apple fans are not the only one targeted by Verizon's promotions these days. The carrier recently kicked off a special deal for customers who prefer Samsung and Motorola smartphones, which will allow them to save a few hundred on a flagship.

For a limited time, consumers who purchase a Samsung Gear S3 from Verizon will get $200 off the Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8/S8+ or Moto Z2 Force Edition. You'll receive the discount in the form of an instant $200 promo credit if you buy the Gear S3 on a 2-year agreement or at full retail.

However, if you choose to get the smartwatch with a device payment purchase, your $200 promo credit will be applied over 24 months as bill incentive credits. On top of the $200 discount, you'll also receive a $50 Google Play gift code, which will be emailed to you within 5 weeks after activation.

You can find more details about the promotional offer on Verizon's online store, and make sure to read our Samsung Gear S3 frontier review for in-depth info on the smartwatch.

Take heed: The latest Gear S3 update wrecked battery life. The difference started minor but got progressively worse for me. A charge used to get me almost 3 days. Not it barely gets me a single day.

Did it give it real time heart rate monitoring? That could be a contributing factor.

This smartwatch is on sale for $275 at times I believe. No contracts for phone purchases required.

Where can I get this watch with 4G connectivity for less than 399? I want it as a stand alone but for some reason VZW still has the watch at the original price. Would hope they would cut it down since it's been out over a year already!!!!!
