Samsung Gear S3 Classic gets even deeper price cut in refurbished condition on Amazon

Samsung Gear S3 Classic gets even deeper price cut in refurbished condition on Amazon
The Gear S3 may not be Samsung’s newest and fastest smartwatch, but over the past few weeks, it’s been repeatedly discounted in both new and refurbished condition, making it more attractive for bargain hunters than the recently released Galaxy Watch.

Both the Samsung Gear S3 and Galaxy Watch are available at special Black Friday prices right now from several major retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy, but if you want to maximize your savings, we have just the deal for you.

A top-rated Amazon seller called Chubbiestech currently charges a measly $159.99 for a 46 mm Samsung Gear S3 Classic with a 90-day warranty, which is officially a new all-time low price for this stylish wearable device.

Obviously, the “catch” is you’re looking at certified refurbished units here, although the heavily marked-down products are rigorously tested to “look and work like new.” The refurbishing process includes “functionality testing, basic cleaning, inspection, and repackaging”, according to this special Amazon listing, and Chubbiestech is described as a seller with a “high performance bar.”

$159.99 is a cool 40 bucks south of the price of a new Gear S3 from Samsung, Amazon, and Best Buy at the time of this writing, not to mention the previous top refurbished deal that we deemed unbeatable was only valid for the Frontier model. 

The Samsung Gear S3 Classic is arguably more elegant, with a “classic” leather strap, as well as slightly lighter, at only 59 grams (band notwithstanding), otherwise offering the same exact specs and features as the Gear S3 Frontier.

We’re talking a sharp 1.3-inch AMOLED display with 360 x 360 resolution, Exynos 7270 processing power, 768MB RAM, 4 gigs of storage space, IP68 water and dust resistance, built-in GPS functionality, NFC and MST for Samsung Pay support, as well as heart rate monitoring capabilities and other health tracking features. That’s certainly not a bad list for just $160.
