$300 is a lot to spend on a clunky watch that shows your incoming messages and counts your steps, but if the Galaxy Gear‘s price tag has kept you from picking up the wearable device you’re in luck. The smartwatch is now available on eBay for just $249.99 with free shipping. The discounted Gear may be refurbished, but the seller, All4Cellular, promises it’s “like new” and “in perfect cosmetic condition.” The seller also has a 99 percent positive feedback rating.
The Galaxy Gear comes equipped with a 1.6-inch 320 x 320 display, a 800MHz processor, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 315mAh battery, and features a built-in speaker, microphones and a 1.9-megapixel camera. Samsung’s first major smartwatch runs a heavily modified version of Android, and is only available in white or black if you want to take advantage of this eBay discount.
We aren’t huge fans of the Galaxy Gear, and it seems likely Samsung will release an updated version in early 2014. However, if you just can’t wait then this is the perfect opportunity to get your hands on the wearable device. Just make sure you have a phone that works with the smartwatch, which at this point includes the Galaxy S III, S4, Note II and Note 3.
