Gear VR for Galaxy S6 now available for $199

Samsung on Friday announced that owners of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge can now officially order the Gear VR Innovator Edition headset online from either Samsung’s website or from BestBuy.com.

The new Gear VR unit was first announced during Mobile World Congress earlier this year, when Samsung also revealed the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. It works with both devices, and also has its own microUSB port so you can power it without taking too much juice from your smartphone battery. Samsung also said this unit is more comfortable than the original model, which works with the Galaxy Note 4.

We’ve been blown away by our experiences with the Gear VR, and it’s very much worth the $199 asking price. Samsung said the units will be available in Best Buy stores beginning May 15.
