The original Galaxy Gear wasn't for everyone (particularly people who don't own a Samsung phone). It also suffered from limited app compatibility and a quirky interface. Its biggest drawback, though, was the price: $299. That's a lot to ask for a smartwatch that only does a handful of things. But what about $99? That's how much Best Buy is currently selling refurbished models of the device for as part of today's deal of the day.


There's a decent chance that many of these refurbished models are essentially new watches that people returned not long after opening. Despite what the screenshot above says, you won't be able to have one shipped to your doorstep - though it looks like store pickup is available. If price has been the only thing holding you back from picking up a Galaxy Gear, today's the day to get one before it's gone.

Lime Green

Jet Black

Mocha Gray

Oatmeal White

Rose Gold

Wild Orange

    They are going to $99 brand new in Canada Best Buys. Hoping that trickles down here.

      I'm seeing $149.99 Canadian, where did you see $99?

      • http://tommydaniel.com Tommy Thompson

        It was a post on Slick Deals. Just doublechecked it was Bell that was selling them for $99.

        • raisage

          OK thanks
          I was thinking of trying it out, but it will probably be too much of a pain to get it working with my HTC One X.

    AP Guys, please, do you think it's safe to buy them ? please answer, I will buy it if you say yes.

    • EH101

      ? It's Best Buy, not some random store... They have a good returns policy. Should be pretty safe.

      • TheUndertaker21

        I am not living in EU.U.S or others, I am living in a really bad country with no service, and based on my very little experience it gets tricky to buy even from those stores, sometimes the user is not a good one or has bad rating from the buyers, that's what I meant, not the bestbuy itself!!

  • TheUndertaker21

    why the shipping is not available ? does that mean I can't buy it from UK ?

    • mustbepbs

      Why don't you ask a few more times? The answer might be different.

      • TheUndertaker21

        shut up NIGGA.

      • TheUndertaker21

        I didn't ask you BITCH

        • john adams

          Uhh... You asked the question for an answer so yes you did technically ask him biatch.

          • TheUndertaker21

            I am laughing at the level of your idiocy, Madafaka

    • jonathan3579

      Boo fucking hoo.

      • TheUndertaker21

        fuck you =D

  • Brayden Reesor

    If only somebody could shoehorn Android Wear onto these things...

  • Richard Markert

    Ship to store doesn't seem to be available either... at least not in any Texas location.

    • TheUndertaker21

      then how can someone buy them when shipping is not available, I want to buy one and my bro is living in U.K he can buy it for me.

      • SineOtter

        You'd have to walk into a Best Buy store to buy one.

        • TheUndertaker21

          thanks for the answer

    • Scott Brady

      If you call their headquarters they can usually help you get one. I got mine that way when they did this Gear firesale in Feb

  • Tony Byatt

    I would consider it, if it was compatible with my phone...

  • JOEY

    No availability in my area. Jensen Beach Florida

  • disqus_7zCKYC2BSD

    For one day?!! Hell why don't they keep the price at $99.

  • Roy Gagaza

    Is it compatible with the Note 3?

  • DavidB23

    There is a huge inventory of these things, cause they are one of the most returned items . In other words; nobody wants them. You'ld have to pay me to take one.
