Deal: Samsung Galaxy Watch price hits new low in the US
by Florin Troaca / Nov 04, 2018, 10:04 AM
If you like the Samsung Galaxy Watch but you aren't convinced it's worth its original price (starting at $329.99), we have good news. The latest Samsung smartwatch family is now cheaper than ever, and you can save $50 on any Bluetooth + Wi-Fi model that's sold in the US.
Right now, the official prices of the Samsung Galaxy Watch (Bluetooth + Wi-Fi) are:
- Galaxy Watch 42mm Black: $279.99 (instead of $329.99)
- Galaxy Watch 42mm Rose Gold: $279.99 (instead of $329.99)
- Galaxy Watch 46mm: $299.99 (instead of $349.99)
These price cuts are valid until November 10 via Samsung's own website (here), Amazon (here), and Best Buy (here). The LTE version of the Galaxy Watch - currently available only on Verizon and T-Mobile - is not part of this deal.
Released back in August, the Samsung Galaxy Watch series isn't too different from the Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch family (which is now 2 years old). Among other things, this means the new series offers a pretty nice UI - based on Tizen, not Wear OS (aka Android Wear) - and is compatible with both Android and iOS smartphones. Our Samsung Galaxy Watch review will allow you to find out much more about the Bluetooth + Wi-Fi version of the device.

In my opinion none of them are worth it just yet. Maybe in a 2-3 years.

1. My experience isn’t my own - one of my most trusted and an avid fan of tech stuff constantly praises his gear s. 2. For me, a smart watch is a niche (and unnecessary) product. So functionality isn’t the primary, but wearing it as a fashion item but with benefits that normal watch doesn’t support. If I was to wear a smart watch, it would be reasons above, so Apple Watch most likely wouldn’t be it until they secede from the dorky design.

They are never gonna be worth it. But until you own one you womt understand it's real value. I've owned every gear so far and the S2 and S3 are great options for what I use them for. But I won't be buying another unless the ones I have stop working

I use to think that as well, due to the price, but I picked up a G3 Frontier in July when the price went down. For what I paid, it's a plus for me. Not having to reach into my belt clip every time someone email's, text or calls is a big plus for me. Battery life is about 2 days. I've even started wearing it to bed to track the sleep I'm getting or not getting. By adjusting my liquid intake after work and completely avoiding caffeine, I've noticed my "good" sleep has gone up, and the restless sleep has gone down. I don't use S-voice, in fact I have it disabled.

No more Galaxy Watches for me, unless they come from OfferUp or Craigslist for very cheap. I went thru 2 46mm units via Best Buy, both were junk, with a minimum of three big issues (if you’re into fitness), four counting the bad battery drain, that Samsung has acknowledged but fail to actually fix. Very bad lag, sticking pedometer, broken heart rate monitor widget, and very rapid battery drain issues. I love my Note 9, but I’m done with Samsung accessories. My wireless duo flat part also has charging issues, I only use the propped up part. If you buy a Galaxy Watch, buy it used, it’s not worth the price, and I sold mine at a loss. The Series 4 puts it to shame, in practically every important area like, consistent performance, dependability, resale value ect.

When I saw they had removed MST, that was enough for me to not buy it. I already have an S2 and S3. So I have ome with and without MST. So I dont need a repeat. Why go backwards in features? I dont wanna give up MST. Which is why I hadnt gotten other options.
