The Samsung Galaxy Gear is today’s Best Buy deal of the day with select color options going for as much as half off the normal retail price. Normally priced at $299.99, today only the Android-powered smartwatch can be purchased for $149.99 in a variety of colors. Here are the ones getting the discount:
Samsung’s Galaxy Gear sales have been slow, to say the least. While we haven’t been updated on numbers in recent months, between the time of its launch in September 2013 and mid-November of the same year the smartwatch had reportedly only sold 50,000 units. In some regions Samsung has had to resort to permanent price cuts in the same range as today’s Best Buy deal.
The Galaxy Gear’s slow launch can be attributed to its limited compatibility with only the Galaxy note 3 at the time. Since then, Samsung has rolled out support for other handsets in their flagship lineup, increasing the number of users that can take advantage of the Gear. While the larger potential userbase should equal increased sales, Samsung has declined to discuss sales figures. When a company is not discussing sales figures, that really can only mean one thing…
If you have been eyeing the Galaxy Gear but looking for the perfect opportunity to grab one, here is your chance. We’re sure Samsung will appreciate it.
