Galaxy Gear 2 price still undecided, as Samsung is still vacillating according to rumors

If all those rumors (and executive hints) concerning the launch of the Galaxy Gear 2 together with the Galaxy S 5 are true, we’ll see a Samsung smartwatch release soon, at MWC (IF — note the all caps — that’s the S 5 event). However, according to recent reports, Samsung is vacillating over the price of the Gear follow-up, and “sources” blame Apple’s upcoming smartwatch, and its possible lower price tag.

The key takeaway is this: Samsung is still thinking about the proper price tag for the Galaxy Gear 2, as the original version failed to gain traction because of the relatively high price attached. While Apple’s (nowhere to be seen, but in rumors) smartwatch is expected to have a small(er) price tag attached (depending on the region), Samsung is still undecided about exactly how much to ask for its next generation wearable.

We’re no analysts here at Pocketnow (and we all have our thoughts regarding analysts and their predictions), but the price of a gadget should be directly related to its production costs, a decent margin, and its features. How much would you pay for an updated Galaxy Gear 2?
