Default Gear 2 Pricing

Take a look at this link:

http://www.ubergizmo.com/2014/03/sam...evealed-rumor/


the Galaxy Gear 2 will retail for 299, while the Gear 2 Neo will go for 199. The Gear Fit will be priced similarly to the Gear 2 Neo at 199 as well.

At those prices the Best Buy sale of the Galaxy Gear a couple of weeks ago for $149 was a steal.

Yes Galaxy Gear for $150 is great deal.
Thinking lately about the Gear Fit, the Galaxy Gear 2 does not interest me at all.

not necessarily. i've seen a lot of gadgets with pricing like 300 USD in USA and 300 EUR in Europe...
It's not really fair, as 300 euros equals to more or less ~410 USD :P

It seems to me that the Galaxy Gear is a better deal than the Neo 2. If given the choice of a Galaxy Gear cheaper than the Neo 2, I think most would opt for the Galaxy.

I'm still confused on battery life. If the GG has a bigger battery and slower processor, why does the GG not have longer battery life?

Because it's running Android.

Default Rumor only, so who knows?

Remember that this is not confirmed, only a rumor. I will so gladly pay $299 US for the Gear 2, as you have to understand what goes into it. Remember that a Galaxy note 3 or and iPhone go for over $700 unsubsidized, so the idea of paying for a piece electronics at $300 is not that bad. I still hope they come in at $249 or less but we shall have to see, but people should not expect to see them under $200.
