Samsung is currently deciding what to charge for the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2

The first-gen timepiece did not sell as well as Samsung had hoped it would, and its pricing was one of the reasons for the tepid sales. In the U.S., the watch sold for $299.99, the same price that some carriers charged for the purchase on-contract of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The latter was initially the only device that the watch worked with, until Samsung pushed out the Android 4.3 update for a number of its other devices, which included support for the Galaxy Gear. That update was sent out to models like the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Samsung GALAXY Note II and others.
The price that Samsung decides to charge for the Galaxy Gear 2 will probably not stray too far from the expected $299 that Apple is said to be pricing its Apple iWatch at. While Apple has not officially acknowledged that such a product even exists, Apple CEO Tim Cook recently stated that Apple would be entering new categories this year.

Drop the price to $150-$200. Also, we don't need silly things like a camera on the wrist band! Most of all, make the phone compatible with all android phones (Apple phones would be a bonus) ala dedicated app that can help push notifications.

I agree about getting rid of the camera. It serves no purpose other then to creep out women and embolden perverts.

They should probably have a significant discount for those willing to buy their latest phones. Otherwise, people will probably only be willing to buy 1 or the other and not both. If I had just enough money for one or the other, I;d go with the new phone and not get the watch. But if they were both packaged together and at a decent price, I may buy both.
