Deal: get a refurbished Verizon Gear S2 for just $99.99 (US only)
Thinking about getting a smartwatch? Interested in the Samsung Gear S2? Right now on eBay, Guarantee Cellular is offering a great deal on what is arguably Samsung’s most beautifully designed smartwatch. For just $99.99, you can get a black manufacturer refurbished Gear S2 (it seems like the white version is already sold out). Considering the fact that a new Gear S2 from Verizon will set you back $349.99, $99.99 is quite a steal.
This particular Gear S2 will work with Verizon in the US using an electronic SIM card. This means it can work as a standalone 3G device, but only if it’s on Verizon. If 3G isn’t a concern for you, then you can always use it on Wi-Fi by connecting it to your smartphone. It will work as long as your smartphone is running Android 4.4 or higher and has at least 1.5GB of RAM.
Just to refresh your memory, the Gear S2 is a beautifully-crafted smartwatch that runs on Tizen. It features a 1.2-inch circular display with a resolution of 360 x 360. Around it is the iconic rotating bezel, which you can use to navigate the menu, zoom in or out of a picture, browse through your music, etc. Under the hood is a dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The watch is powered by a 300mAh battery that should last you a day or two. And with the Wi-Fi version getting updated with Samsung Pay, you can reasonably expect the carrier versions to receive the same update in the near future.
Guarantee Cellular boasts 97.5% positive feedback on eBay. It lists that the watch will ship in a generic box with a charger and a charger cradle. Although the Gear S3 is set to be unveiled in just a week’s time, the Gear S2 is still a fantastic device. Unfortunately, however, this offer seems to be available only in the US.
If you’re looking to buy a smartwatch, this may be a great opportunity for you. But hurry because so far, 684 devices have been sold, and there is a limited quantity available!
