Pre-announcement rumor says Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch may cost $450

Of course, we should keep in mind that the rumor is based on the South Korean pricing. A South Korean news site is saying that the Gear will be priced at 500,000 won, which would translate to about $450 in the U.S.. But, gadgets do often cost more in South Korea than they do in the States, so it is possible that the Gear could come in cheaper when it makes its way over here.
Still, if this rumor is to be believed, it's probably not likely that the Gear will cost much less than about $300-350. Samsung has said that the device is more of a "concept" than a fully realized product, so this may be something like the Google Glass pricing, where it is priced higher in order to only attract the enthusiastic beta testers, and push away any impulse buyers.

That's okay. As long as it's not Apple it will not be labeled as "overpriced".

If the "gear" is water proof & lasts more than 24 hours then it's worth it. If it's not then this "gear" is going to fail at the $450.00 price point. Let's see what comes of this..... in about less than 1 hour & 16 minutes.

24 hours? that's pretty low expectation. I would expect a watch battery to last at least in weeks.
