If you're unsure whether to purchase a $200 Galaxy Watch Active
right now or wait a few more weeks for the $279 Galaxy Watch Active 2
... you may also want to consider the "regular" Galaxy Watch
. Commercially released a little over a year ago, the stylish Tizen-powered wearable device typically costs $330 and up, but if you don't have a problem buying an "open box" unit, you can save a whopping 150 bucks at the time of this writing.
That means you'll be paying a measly $179.99 for a 42mm rose gold variant looking pretty much as good as a brand-new device, powering on with its factory settings restored, and shipping (for free) in "slightly distressed" packaging alongside its original accessories. The Bluetooth-only Galaxy Watch
on sale here also comes with a free 1-year warranty from a top-rated eBay seller named Quick Ship Electronics. The same goes for a 46mm silver model fetching $189.99 instead of a $349.99 list price in open box condition.
Larger and heavier than the Watch Active 2, the original Galaxy Watch is not set to receive those Apple Watch
-rivaling ECG and Fall Detection features
anytime soon. But the big guy does sport a handy rotating bezel, as well as a sharp Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels. It also doesn't need a smartphone to track your location using standalone GPS functionality while including a built-in heart rate monitor and NFC support for wrist payments as well. In a nutshell, it has essentially everything it needs to compete against the market-leading Apple Watch Series 4
minus cellular connectivity at these killer prices.
