Incredibly enough, the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2, which is typically priced at $379.99 and up, can be yours for a measly $99 at the time of this writing without jumping through too many hoops.

All you have to do is join T-Mobile, activate a new line of "qualifying" data with paired Digits service to be used with your new intelligent timepiece, and purchase said timepiece on a monthly installment plan. After meeting all of Magenta's special conditions, you'll get 24 monthly bill credits amounting to a grand total of $280.99 and bringing the aforementioned $379.99 MSRP all the way down to 99 bucks.
