If you’ve been eyeing Samsung’s line of smartwatches, but can’t afford to pay full price, have we got a deal for you. Woot is offering the original Galaxy Gear for $159.99 today, down from the $249.99 Samsung is asking for the wearable device. If you missed last month’s Galaxy Gear deal from Best Buy now’s your chance to grab one.

The Galaxy Gear is Woot’s deal of the day at 46-percent off. The smartwatch, which comes in five colors and offers a 1.63-inch display, sports a 1.9-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 315mAh battery, 2 built-in microphones and a speaker. The deal lasts until the end of the Tuesday or whenever the Samsung smartwatch sells out.

If your heart is set on the Galaxy Gear go ahead and grab this deal, but if you’re feeling any doubt, we’d recommend you pass on this Samsung smartwatch. There are better options available today, namely the Pebble, and a second wave of Gear devices are about to hit the market. There’s also Google’s take on wearables, Android Wear, which launches this summer with devices from Motorola and LG.
