This year Samsung introduced a new Gear VR headset which is compatible with the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 as well as all of the other past Galaxy devices which are supported by the older model. Although the older model still generally costs $99.99, with the new model available you can pick up the older Gear VR at a discount right now on a deal, as it's available for just $59.99 instead of the normal price of $99.99. Since this is the older model of the headset, it does not work with the Galaxy Note 7, it will however, work with the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, as well as the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy Note 4, and Galaxy Note Edge.
The Gear VR headset is driven by Oculus software, and powered by the device that plugs into the headset, so there is no internal battery source or actual display. It has an adjustable head strap for getting the perfect fit, and there are buttons on the right side of the headset for managing the interface, including a touch pad for directional navigation, volume buttons, and a back button. There is also a dial on top of the headset that allows the user to adjust the focus to just the right position.
