Recertified Samsung Galaxy Gear can be yours for just $99

samsung galaxy gear aa 11

It’s no secret that the original Samsung Galaxy Gear was a bit of a dud, in large part due to early constraints such as few useful apps, limited notifications and limited device support. Samsung has since fixed many of these early issues for the OG Gear watch, even though the Korean giant has since moved on to the Gear 2 family.

The good news for consumers is that even though the Gear is no longer the latest and greatest from Samsung, it’s actually become a reasonably decent choice through updates and Samsung’s abandonment of the device means you can find it for cheap. How cheap? Right now Daily Steals is offering the watch for just $99.

The catch? This is a recertified watch, though it still comes with a 90-day warranty. If you are the kind that don’t mind buying recertified or used products to save some hard-earned cash, you’ll want to check out this deal.

Get the Samsung Galaxy Gear for $99 from Daily Steals.

    No one wants that first-to-market crap.

    It’s a pretty great device, Tizen improved the battery life even further (i got 5 days with Android and nearly twice the amount with Tizen). The only thing missing for me is the water resistance and the camera could be integrated into the device itself, but I really like it. :)

    I bought one of these for about the same price on Ebay. Its a great smart watch, with only one problem. Battery life. Even with the Tizen update, it got 2 days of battery at best (this is with actually using it, and not just letting it sit idle). It was a pain to charge it every two days. I used it for about a month, and then sold it.

    So, with that in mind, I’d recommend against ANY smart watch until the battery life is acceptable. Despite the great price, I’d give this a pass.

    You can get an extra 15% off with coupon code DISCOUNT15 or something like that (you can sign up for the ad that pops when the page first loads if my memory’s false). With free shipping (I used a coupon code link but I don’t know if that was required- it came through the invisible hand chrome plugin) that made it shipped for $84.

    I have one with Tizen which is good for battery life and general performance. But however you can also roll Android with Null Rom 23 + Tasker + Tasgear you have a lot of capabilities (not the mention it’s nice having a camera on your wrist) for not much more than a video game. Over on the XDA forums are instructions to switch back to android if you don’t like tizen.

    Yes Android wear will be better, but it’ll also be 3-4 times as much. I’m holding out hope they port it to the Gear but probably not. Either way it’s a great placeholder to still be in with current tech but not have to pay an arm and a leg. Notifications on your wrist is the other really nice thing. This sounds like a sales rant…
