Samsung Galaxy Gear Available on eBay Daily Deals for $199 With Free Shipping

galaxy gear

Need a last minute holiday shopping deal? The Samsung Galaxy Gear is available in “limited” quantities as one of eBay’s daily deals today for $199.95 with free shipping. We are fully aware that the product is still mostly worthless if you don’t own a Samsung phone, but should you, that’s not a bad price for a smartwatch that typically retails for $299. OK, even with a Samsung device you are looking at a limited set of useful features along with terrible battery life, but hey, $100 savings!

We reviewed the Galaxy  Gear some time ago and essentially told you not to buy it. We are still mostly of that same opinion, however, Samsung has introduced an update or two to help out some of our complaints.

As of this moment, I’m seeing the Gear available in black, grey, white, orange, and the loveliest of rose golds.

    This should be a throw in if you buy a note 3 or $50 if you buy a samsung phone…only way its worth it for this ugly silly nonsensical thing…the commercial even shows how pointless it is…im holding the phone and it rings…but let me turn the phone over n answer with my watch…then turn the phone back over and put it to my ear…..what…google should parter with movado or something and make a true smart watch thats worth wearing

    I jumped on this. My gf actually got me a pebble smartwatch for Christmas because she said it had good reviews compared to the gear. As soon as I opened the Pebble, I was like “oh hell naw!”. It is the cheapest, flimsiest watch Ive ever had. Seriously. A $10 Casio from walmart has better build quality. It’s like a child’s toy. Needless to say the gf felt bad that I didnt like the gift. We returned it to best buy and I had her compare it to the gear. Then she didnt feel as bad lol.

      Wow, sounds like you’re a real class act, making your girlfriend feel bad about buying you the wrong gift.

      It’s like you deserve better or something.

    I take it the influx of galaxy gears on eBay just happens to be the unwanted surprises that showed up at Christmas day,only to find out that their phone is not even compatible with it.

    Isn’t the Gear officially $199? Saw the Samsung commercial while watching a hockey game.

  • EricMayBell

    I think everyone here would pay 30 dollars more for a Nexus 7 over this piece of crapware

  • jlsushman

    Dude…I get almost a week of battery life. What do people do on this thing? Film porn?

    • De Nguyen

      If I took it off the charger in the morning, by 10 PM it’ll be around 90% left. It drains a bit faster after that, around 70% after day 2. It will last a good 4 full days+ before I throw it back on the charger.

  • Christopher Moore

    $100 and I’m in.

    • mustbepbs

      I wouldn’t buy this piece of sh*t if it was $50.

  • Tim Aries

    By using the Gear you can get p*ssy easily – said Samsung

    • Christopher Moore

      What if you already have p*ssy and a Note 3?

      • Tim Aries

        buy Moto X and use touchless control to get more p*ssies

      • jlsushman

        Then you are a pretty cool chick.

    • monkey god

      yeah i could see myself getting pissy using a device like that.

      • eric

        Well my girl is one of those who returned this kinda Gear in 3 days. Nuff said

    Come on, fellas! Let’s all get geared up to creep out the ladies at the NYE parties.

    “Here, give me your address. Just say it.”

    2 hours later, “Open the gott damn door, Amy! It’s Jack! Open the gott damn door!”

  • crazzbaby

    Return policy is only 14 days.. and has horrible customer feedback

  • fauxshizzl

    It’s a trap.

  • Radgatt

    Still won’t make it in time for Christmas. But a price reduction is still nice.

    • Skullfreak

      I just bought one from best buy yesterday not sure why so many people don’t like it.
      I think it’s great and am a tech geek.
      And I did just order one of these two from eBay and when I receive it I will take the other one back to best buy.

      • Tim Aries

        Have you got laid with it yet?

        • Christopher Moore

          I think a better question is have he used it while getting laid? That would be a good test for the camera.

          • Akbar

            Or get a nice wrist pov video if he’s going at it solo

      • crazed_z06

        I chalk it up to people hating for the sake of hating.

  • drparty

    I’m in for this once we hit the $49 price point. I predict a used one will be easily available at $50 within two years.

  • aznmode1

    Got excited till I saw refurbished. Damn it.

    • Ajmcnicol

      “refurbished” is usually company lingo to sell the items for a lot less to move inventory. Its not really.

  • Petro Dragoumanos

    Even at $200 I think I’ll pass. I am hoping Google releases a smart watch this year that will work with more than just Samsung phones.
