The Galaxy Gear has had a pretty short life-span. It was announced at IFA last fall alongside the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. It was Samsung’s first venture into wearables, and it wasn’t an entirely bad first try. But Samsung definitely learned from the original Galaxy Gear, which is exactly what needed to happen. At Mobile World Congress, Samsung announced the Galaxy S5, and a few more wearables. They dropped the “Galaxy” in the Gear lineup and brought out the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. The Gear 2 is the smartwatch, while the Gear 2 Neo is a slightly cheaper version, and the Gear Fit is more of a fitness tracker, which is probably my favorite.
But back to the Galaxy Gear. Right now, if you’re in Canada you can grab a Galaxy Gear from Bell for just $100, or $95.97. Now we all basically know why the price dropped about $200, it’s so that Bell can get rid of their inventory before the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo arrive alongside the Galaxy S5. So that if you’ve been thinking of picking up a Galaxy Gear, and you’re in Canada, this might be your chance to get a good price on one. According to Mobile Syrup it appears that there is a limit of three per person at checkout. But I don’t think anyone will be buying three, except for those looking to sell them later on. They also have a ton of inventory of the ivory, orange and black colors.
The Galaxy Gear is still a pretty great watch, albeit only working with the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3. Along with the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition tablet. But if you own one of those tablets or smartphones, it’s definitely a nice piece of tech to have in your collection. How many of you are planning on picking one up from Bell?
