Samsung may have left it to third-party retailer Adorama to try to boost the mainstream popularity of the Gear S2 stateside, as the Apple Watch S draws near, but on British shores, the Korean manufacturer takes promotional matters into its own hands.
While technically not billed as a Valentine’s Day bundle deal, the latest UK-only special offer lets you buy a swanky Tizen smartwatch for yourself and a loved one at a big discount. Typically priced at around £300, the Samsung Gear S2 Classic, seasoned with an elegant leather band, is now available for £449 in a box of two.
That means you’ll merely cough up £225 for each unit, which may still sound like a lot of money converted into US currency ($320 or so), but it’s actually 75 pounds cheaper than the entry-level Apple Watch Sport in Great Britain, and that thing obviously comes with an arguably uglier fluoroelastomer strap in tow.
Other semi-compelling Samsung winter bargains include a £425 Galaxy Note 4 Mont Blanc Edition, £279 Galaxy A5 (original version), £199 Galaxy A3, £242 LTE-enabled Galaxy Tab A 9.7, and £159 Galaxy Tab E + bronze book cover bundle.
Why isn’t it snowing discounts elsewhere too? Perhaps Sammy simply likes its British fans better.
