Apart from the hot new Galaxy Watch Active, Samsung recently discounted every single wearable device the company directly sells on its official website, including the “regular” Galaxy Watch, Gear S3, Gear Sport, and Gear Fit2 Pro. While these cool deals still stand, you can actually save more money by shopping for some of the aforementioned products on eBay.
In case you’re wondering, a “new other” product sits somewhere in the gray area between brand-new, untouched, and unused devices and refurbished or pre-owned gear. At least in theory, the Galaxy Watch units on sale today should look and work like new, having probably been displayed in various stores or returned by their original owners before any damage could be inflicted.
As such, the retail box in which these discounted smartwatches will be shipped may show signs of “distress”, but all original accessories are apparently included (plus a bonus spare charger) and the $202.99 units should power on with their factory settings restored. It’s important to point out you’re looking at the 42mm rose gold model here rather than 46mm silver variants.
The smaller and arguably prettier Galaxy Watch normally costs $329.99, although Samsung currently sells it for $279.99. At $202.99, this is essentially as affordable as the Galaxy Watch Active, which comes with an even smaller screen, as well as a smaller battery, and no handy rotating bezel action. Bottom line, this deal certainly deserves to be in eBay’s spotlight, although that might mean you don’t have a lot of time to act before the price inevitably goes up.
