Did you ever wished to own the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smart watch but stayed away because of the price, well here is some good news. The Galaxy Gear price has dropped considerably. It is now available for a price tag of under Rs. 15,000. Some online stores have already reduced the price.
The Samsung Galaxy Gear Smart watch was initially available for approx Rs. 21,900. There were two reasons why consumers showed less interest. The first reason – the watch supported Android 4.3 that was only available on the Note 3 when the Gear was released along with the Galaxy Note 3 phablet. The other reason was the price.
As of today both the issues are somewhat resolved. The 4.3 Android update has been rolled out on many Samsung devices making the Gear Smart watch compatible with many more models. Plus the price drop from Rs. 21,000 to Rs. 14,989 seems lucrative.
Having said that there are still very few devices available in the market that are running on Android 4.3 and above. With the new price tag Samsung Galaxy Gear Smart watch is competing with the Sony Smart watch 2. There are certain features on the Galaxy Gear that makes it a better option.
