Free Gear 360 or charging pad bundle? The Note 8 orders come with bonuses

Apart from the free premium AKG earphones tuned by Harman Kardon, which apparently come standard with the Note 8, the new Samsung phablet will have a little something extra to offer for those who braved the $900+ pricing and preordered the freshest S Pen-laden wonder, and those early adopters, too.

The preorderers and early buyers who get a Note 8 by September 24th will be greeted by a multiple choice. On one side will be a free Samsung Gear 360 camera (that's a $230 value), while the other choice will be the so-called "Galaxy Foundation Kit" that will sport Samsung's Fast Wireless Charging Convertible that goes from a pad to a stand in a jiffy ($190 retail value), plus a 128GB Samsung EVO+ memory card to boot. Which freebie would you pick?

Dex is the option in the Uk, but i'd probably prefer a WiFi charger

Gear 360 is the more valued item. The new gen wireless charger is on Amazon for $52

The gear fit 2 pro? Is that an option :( . The convertible stand doesn't work with otterbox defender cases, and I already had and didn't use the gear 360.
