As Samsung is getting ready to unveil the Gear S3
and the Gear S3 Classic
, Dailysteals is offering a pretty good deal on the current-generation Samsung Gear
S2 Classic 4G. Note that these are manufacturer refurbished units.
The LTE-enabled, classical-looking version of the Gear S2 is currently priced just $239.99, a 40% discount compared to the wearable’s usual selling price (in new condition) of $399.99.
If you're feeling uneasy about these being refurbs, you can also add a one-year replacement plan, which covers both manufacturer defects and accidental damage, for $25.99. You can have the wearable in any color, as long as it's black.
If you find this to be a good price for the Samsung Gear S2 Classic 4G, you have about four days to take advantage of this deal.
The Gear S2 Classic maintains most of the hardware components that go into the standard Gear S2, such as a 1.2 circular Super AMOLED display running at 360 by 360 pixels, 512MB of RAM, as well as Samsung’s unique rotating circular bezel that can be used for navigating the interface. Speaking of the UI, all Gear S2 watches are based on Samsung’s own Tizen OS. The data-enabled models come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC, as opposed to the Wi-Fi only models, which feature Samsung's own Exynos 3520 chipset.
As the name suggests, the Gear S2 Classic drops the sporty look of the standard S2 for a design that more closely resembles that of a traditional analog timepiece. Also, this deal is good for the 4G-enabled model, which is compatible with Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T.
What do you guys think? Is the Samsung Gear S2 Classic 4G worth $239.99, or would you rather wait for the Gear S3
Classic, which is expected to be unveiled early next month at IFA 2016 in Berlin?
