Samsung Gear S3 and Gear Sport get permanent price cuts

Not long after announcing the brand new Galaxy Watch series, Samsung is now offering its older smartwatches at permanently discounted prices, at least in the US. Thus, if you want to buy a Samsung Gear S3 - either the Classic or the Frontier variant - you can currently get it for $299.99 (down from $349.99), while a Samsung Gear Sport costs $279.99 (down from $299.99).

Recently, we've seen the Gear S3 Classic, Gear S3 Frontier, and Gear Sport being sold for even lower prices. However, that was thanks to various deals and promotions. Now, we're assuming that all three smartwatches will be part of future promotions that should bring their prices to record-low levels. 

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Watch (which isn't that different from the Gear S3) is available for pre-order starting at $329.99 and will be released on August 24. As you can see, at this very moment, there's only a $30 price difference between the new Samsung smartwatch family and the older one. Our Galaxy Watch hands-on might help you decide if the higher price of the new model is justified.
