The Samsung Galaxy Gear is a flawed product. Its limited compatibility, average battery life, and odd styling made its debut price of $349.99 very hard to justify. Now that Woot! has the Gear for 46 percent off at $159.99, though, I’d argue it’s a little more compelling.
The Woot! deal is one of the better we’ve seen. It’s $30 off retail and only $10 more than the Best Buy’s flash sale a few weeks ago. If you’ve been eyeing the Galaxy Gear for a while, it might be time to pull the trigger. Of course, with the launch of Samsung’s improved Gear smartwatches, the price of the original can only go down.
Woot! has the Galaxy Gear in 5 colors: lime green, oatmeal beige, wild orange, mocha gray, and rose gold.
