Default Time to sell my Gear 2?

With the Moto 360 just around the corner, and the round LG R just announced, do you think the Gear 2 will take a price dump? I'm disappointed with the lack of Tizen apps compared to Android Wear, don't really use the camera, make phone calls on it, or use the IR, so is it time to sell now?

If it's more technology than you need, why not? Sell it and get something better suited to your needs.

After months of use, I can say I'm pretty disappointed by the Gear2. The notifications are great, but using it for responding/calls/etc is just too cumbersome and slow. The response time of the voice recognition is pretty much unbearable, the store is dead, the apps are severely lacking, and Samsung has pretty much forgotten about it. I'll hold onto it until it dies, or until a model much more improved comes out, which I'm thinking is quite a few years away.

The Gear S will reportedly have a Sim card, which should free it from the cellphone tether that current models require.

I just read about this yesterday and am looking forward to it's release! I'm going to pass on the moto 360, a device a was very interested in at one point, because of it's lack of phone capabilities and camera. I luv those two features of my gear 2.

Wouldn't that require a separate phone plan? I'm on Sprint, which is CDMA, so I wouldn't even be able to use a SIM card. I don't really care for the looks of the Gear S anyway. The curved screen might be nice, but at least from the mockups, there is way too much dead space between the display and the bezel, plus it doesn't look like the band is replaceable.
