Deal: Samsung Galaxy Watch price drops to under $300

Deal: Samsung Galaxy Watch price drops to under $300
After offering a free wrist band with the Galaxy Watch for a limited period of time, Samsung is now back with a new deal involving its latest smartwatch. More precisely, Samsung allows US customers to save $30 on the Galaxy Watch, although only Bluetooth + Wi-Fi variants are included here (which means T-Mobile's Galaxy Watch LTE is not part of this deal).

Starting today through October 20, the official prices for Samsung's Galaxy Watch Bluetooth + Wi-Fi models are as follows:
  • Galaxy Watch 42mm Black: $299.99 (instead of $329.99)
  • Galaxy Watch 42mm Rose Gold: $299.99 (instead of $329.99)
  • Galaxy Watch 46mm: $319.99 (instead of $349.99)

This new Galaxy Watch deal is available only in the US. If you're interested, you can buy the smartwatches at the aforementioned reduced prices not just from Samsung, but also from Best Buy and Amazon. In fact, Amazon is currently listing the lowest Samsung Galaxy Watch 46mm price we've ever seen: $317.99. Regardless of where you intend to purchase your Galaxy Watch from, the source links below will be of help.

If it came in black in the larger size I would buy it. No MAGNETIC strip payment and the wrong color ruined it for me. Why down grade it's features and charge the same price. That's a nay no for me..... Lol

I’ve never seen someone with a Galaxy Watch. I see people wearing tons of Apple Watches...

Ive seen quite a few people with Galaxy/Gear watches. Not quite as many as I’ve seen with Apple Watches to be honest, but lots.

I know what you mean Jed....when I go to restaurants, movies, etc...I see nothing but AW’s⌚️...I see the potential of smart watches, but Apple and FitBit are the ones to be in this space. Google WearOS is no where to be found...

Google WearOS is something I never see. Apple, FitBit, and Galaxy/Gear are all I see. Apple owns the segment, and rightfully so. The Apple Watch (especially 3&4), are crazy good.

I had super high hopes for the Galaxy Watch, and ended up massively disappointed. Let’s begin: The first 46mm unit I had worked great, till I updated it. It started losing 5% of its batter per hour vs 5% every four hours in the beginning. I went into Best Buy and exchanged it, I held out on the update for two weeks, and updated it. The same battery drain happened, but after a few reboots, the battery life recovered. However, the update left it with a sticking pedometer, that would stop tracking my steps mid workout, and pick back up without retro logging them. The heart rate monitor widget no longer took my heart rate, but when I opened the S-Health app, the monitor worked fine. It also was very laggy (2nd unit not the first) all and all, for me personally, the Galaxy Watch was a beautiful feature packed piece of sht. I sold it at a considerable loss, after owning it only one month, and haven’t looked back. Hope others are having a better experience than I had.

I am considering buying one but this sound like a defective unit ( two in your case ), I am still deciding whether to go with Gear S3 or the new Galaxy Watch because of the larger battery. However, your experienced is putting me off with the new Galaxy Watch. Hopefully a new update can fix this.

I like Samsung, but I will not lie bro. My experience with the Galaxy Watch was very bad, and I’m glad I sold it. I’m being 100% truthful about my experience with it, and I don’t think I’ll ever buy a new one again. The resale is also weak. If you get one, buy used.

Not surprising. No one buy Galaxy watch.

My interest in a smart watch is starting to rise, but I don't want something solely dependent on my phone being in proximity. Seamless integration and stand alone capability is a must. I see tons of Apple watches too, but I'm not switching to a crappy iPhone just because of the watch.

It’s funny...but you will still buy the new edge to edge iPad Pro?

No MST...I'll keep my G3 Frontier. Works great, 2+ days battery is ok by me.

Just a hunch, but I'm thinking Samsung saw how many Gear S3 watches were registered with non-Samsung phones and decided to drop MST payment. I love having Samsung Pay on my Frontier and Google Pay on my Z3 Play. Sadly though, it's a moot point if you're more interested in tracker functions because my Fitbit Ionic is so much better at fitness-related functions AND I can use Fitbit Pay.

Damn, didn’t know you could pay with a FitBit

Yep. The Ionic and the Versa support payments. Having that takes the sting away from using my Windows phone during the work week.

In my country, the launched price without any discount at MYR 1199 (around USD 288) for 42mm while for 46mm at MYR 1299 (around USD 312). I guess we all should be grateful for more affordable price compared to US.
