When Samsung's Gear VR headset launched it was only compatible with the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge, and there was much less available content that one could consume. It was also set at a price of $199. Now, the new Gear VR headset is compatible with the Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, and it only costs $99. Right now, though, you can pick up the new Gear VR headset on sale for just $79.99 brand-new, which helps you save $20 off the original cost, making a perfect deal if you're interested in VR content.
The Gear VR lets you immerse yourself in a world of games, apps like Netflix, and other kinds of media in both 180-degree and 360-degree views depending on the content. It features foam cushioning on the inside to keep things comfortable and a focus adjustment wheel to get the focus just right. It also has a touchpad, back key, and volume keys, and is equipped with a gyro, accelerometer and proximity sensor. Since it's powered by the device you put inside of it, it uses the superAMOLED display of the device, and all of the compatible devices have Quad HD displays. It also weighs 318 grams so it's not too heavy when being worn.
