Samsung Gear S3 scores unprecedented $120 discount to hit new all-time low price
If you're looking for an all-new smartwatch with support for both iOS and Android phones, a robust set of activity tracking and wellness features, a reasonably stylish design, and an affordable price point, you can't go wrong with the $200 Samsung Galaxy Watch Active. Meanwhile, the "regular" Galaxy Watch is arguably prettier, faster, and more intuitive, rotating bezel and all, typically starting however at a substantially higher $330.

Technically, the Samsung Gear S3 Frontier has an extravagant $300 price tag attached to its name as well, but after almost two and a half years in stores, this is routinely eligible for massive discounts at both authorized retailers and reliable eBay sellers in fully functional condition.

The latest deal might be the best one we've ever seen offered on brand-new, unused, untouched units with a standard manufacturer's warranty included, which are currently available for Costco members only at $179.99 a pop. This certainly beats all those recent Amazon promotions, as well as Costco's previous all-time low price, which also happened to match the lowest level we saw the Gear S3 hit back during the Black Friday frenzy.

While there's obviously a good chance you can find slightly cheaper, barely used Samsung Gear S3 devices on eBay, those in possession of a Costco membership shouldn't think twice about picking up this bad boy at 180 bucks. Yes, it's old, but it's still handsome, sporting a timeless 1.3-inch circular AMOLED display with 360 x 360 resolution, a handy rotating bezel, IP68 water and dust resistance, Samsung Pay functionality directly on your wrist, a heart rate monitor, built-in GPS, and a reasonably large battery capable of keeping the lights on for more than a day between charges.

Unlike 2016 phones, the Gear S3 is still supported from a software standpoint, recently receiving an update to the same Tizen OS version running on the Galaxy Watch and Watch Active.
