Good or bad? Probably means the GG 2 is coming soon. Could get some more devs to jump in here also.

I think because Samsung dropped the price in India to $250. Even best buy has it at $250 now. I'm waiting for it to hit $200 from a regular store before I jump in.

I bought 2 at that price in December from eBay. I don't regret it at all.

I know myself, if I didn't have one already, i would definitely bite on that one. I mean, that kinda kills my resale value although i only paid $240. My other thought is that every time I see a decent size price drop on Galaxy products, it's because the next version is coming out soon.

I went to Craigslist and got mine for 190. But I also made sure it connected and asked the guy if he rooted it and flashed it. He told me it was stock and he had to Google root and flash so I knew it was a good buy!!! And I was gonna wait for the next generation also but these thoughts came to mind. 1 how much will the Gear 2 cost if the Gear was 300 (Sales werent great but good enough to make a gear2) 2. I don't wear watches so trying one out wouldn't hurt (forget I'm wearing it sometimes) 3. After seeing people flash it updates already the Gear will be just as good as the Gear 2 except for hardware. Unless they add a sim chip like the omate then I'd swoop it oh and front facing camera so I can video chat. Sorry for the long post.

Unfortunately, people on craigslist here, think they can charge more than retail stores. Lol.

I bought two for $320 off Kijiji, and then sold one for $180, making my Gear only $140. Decent deal.

You can probably get it off Kijiji or CL for $180.
