Please remember that this was the Samsung dude at Bestbuy that told me this. Based upon my experience with them, they have little to no idea what is actually happening with their products. Case in point, whenever I go to my local Bestbuy, the Gear Watches are ALWAYS out of power and can't be tried. I asked the Samsung guy why the watch was out of power and he literally DID NOT KNOW how to charge it up.
Either these employees are the dumbest people alive or Bestbuy just hands them a "Samsung" shirt and zero training.
Regardless, I am hoping this $100 story is true, but consider the source. We'll see.
