The prettiest non-Android Wear circular smartwatch has been available directly from its manufacturer starting at $250 after a 50 bucks discount for a few days now. We’ve also known Best Buy was planning a similar deal for Black Friday, and Amazon predictably followed suit.
But it’s actually a much smaller US retailer, typically focused primarily on camera equipment, that lets you purchase the Samsung Gear S2 for the lowest price ever, namely $209. The $299 MSRP is dropped to $259 at Adorama courtesy of a $40 instant rebate, and a further $50 mail-in rebate will allow you to score the Tizen wearable at 210 bucks all in all.
Of course, technically, you’ll first cough up $260, then get half a Benji back in the mail. You can choose either white or black Gear S2 flavors, or for an extra touch of style, go the Gear S2 Classic path in exchange for $269 after a $30 instant rebate and $50 mail-in refund. The S2 Classic is $299 elsewhere.
It’s probably needless to stress the time-limited aspect of Adorama’s special offers, with all three watch models already on backorder, but still available for sale. Only compatible to Android handhelds at the moment, the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic should soon support iOS as well, pulling various notifications to your wrist, tracking daily activity and health, and generally lasting around two days between charges.
