The Sony SmartWatch 2 still goes for $199.99 new, but today you can get one around your wrist for less than half the price. Cow Boom, a Best Buy brand, has pre-owned Sony smartwatches in stock that it's willing to let go for $79.99. These may come with scratches and dents, but they're still going to work. I'll admit, that may not sound entirely compelling, but that's the risk you take whenever you buy something used.

Refurbished alternatives are also in stock, and they're going for $99.99. These are $20 more, but they're more likely to ship in better shape. They may contain a minor scuff here or there, but they probably won't look like they came out of the bottom of a box at a yard sale either.

Considering the SmartWatch 2 isn't limited solely to Sony devices and should pair with most modern Android phones, this makes for an affordable way to get a taste of what this whole smartwatch thing is all about. Here's a link.

Born and raised in the rural South, Bertel knows what it's like to live without 4G LTE - or 3G, for that matter. The only things he likes sweeter than his tea are his gadgets, and while few objects burn more than a metal phone on a summer day, he prefers them that way anyway.

    Refurbished do not look better than used. I'm not sure what made you think that. These used smartwatches are mostly store returns from customer who used it for a couple of weeks and returned. All the stuff I ordered from cowboom came in great condition.

      See Cow Boom's product descriptions in the screenshot.

        I don't have to look at the screenshots. I've purchased from Cowboom numerous times, and received like new products even when it was stated to be scuffed and scratched.

        Buying refurbished products does not reduce the risk of getting an item with scratches all over. It only means the item was used, found to be defective, and repaired. I would rather go with used products on cowboom because they're most likely items that customer returned because they didn't like it or buyer's remorse.

        Either case. Cowboom has a 15 days no hassle return and return shipping is on them.

        Go with Used and you guys won't be disappointed.

          I'm not arguing against you here. Your firsthand experience is great for our readers, and I'm glad you've shared it.

          I simply provided an answer for "I'm not sure what made you think that." I also don't want any readers coming to us wanting answers if they happen to receive a scuffed unit that we assured them would look like new counter to what the website says.
