If history is any indication, Samsung will probably unveil a companion device for the Galaxy Note 10
in addition to the new high-end smartphone family
itself on August 7 in New York City
. Of course, the company's smartwatch release schedule can be a little erratic and hard to predict, as 2017's Gear Sport
actually saw daylight a week after the Galaxy Note 8
, while the Galaxy Watch Active
broke with tradition entirely by launching earlier this year.
While far from affordable, the beautiful Tizen-running smartwatch is frequently discounted by its manufacturer
, as well as various major authorized retailers, not to mention top-rated eBay sellers
. The latest deal comes from Best Buy, beating most price cuts available directly from Samsung in the past... as long as you don't mind coughing up the full retail cost of an LTE-enabled Galaxy Watch
You'll receive a $50 rebate in the form of a free e-gift card if you do that, which you will then be able to apply towards a future purchase of... virtually anything that Best Buy sells. No catches, no jumping through hoops, no strings attached whatsoever.
All three Galaxy Watch LTE models are eligible for the $50-worth freebie, starting at $379.99 in a 42mm size and either a rose gold or midnight black paint job, with the 46mm variant in silver fetching a full 400 bucks. For that money, you get everything from built-in cellular connectivity to wrist payment support, standalone GPS functionality, a heart rate monitor, a beautiful circular Super AMOLED display, decent battery life, and even a handy rotating bezel.
