Galaxy Gear smartwatch finally flirts with affordability

Samsung’s Galaxy Gear is easily one of the most capable smartwatches we’ve ever seen, but it’s not without some of its own major flaws: we’ve got that very short battery life to deal with, there’s the issue of extremely limited phone compatibility at the moment, and the watch’s price tag is higher than some full-on smartphones. While we can’t do anything about those first two, that last issue is finally getting addressed in an adequate manner, with T-Mobile offering the Galaxy Gear for just $210.

That’s a $90 savings off the nearly $300 you’ll pay elsewhere, and for a product that’s only now becoming available, that’s a pretty nice early price break. There’s no telling how long this offer will last, as it’s tied to a coupon code, and those things have a nasty habit of going invalid at the worst possible moment.

That said, if you want to snatch one up while this price lasts, head on over to T-Mobile through the source link below and enter promo code “FALLFUN30” (for the 30% off you’ll get) at checkout.

Don’t forget, the Galaxy Gear only works with the Galaxy Note 3 for the moment, so if you’re not picking that phone up too, make sure you’ve got a Samsung model which has been confirmed for future Gear compatibility – like the GS4.
