Samsung Gear Live arrives at Officeworks for $199

Gear Live Header
Looks like the price of the Gear Live may be due an update soon, with a second retailer offering the Android Wear watch for a sub-$200 price.

Officeworks in their latest catalogue is offering the Gear Live for just $199, mirroring the GoodGuys who started selling the watch at $198 last month. Just like the Play Store, the watch is only available in Black – although a Wine Red option is now available on the US Google Play site. The Gear Live is also showing up on the Officeworks website which allows you to check stock levels at stores around Australia.

Though cheaper by a $1 at The GoodGuys, it may be worthwhile testing out the limits of the Officeworks pricematch policy which offers to beat the price of any identical stocked item by 5%. If you’re in the market for a new Android Wear watch, this could be one of your cheapest options yet.

Have you purchased an Android Wear watch yet? Is this pricing enough to get you into a Gear Live?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Already have the Gear Live – great device – my charger hasn’t broken and is working perfectly well.
However I’m looking forward to the Moto!

Same here although I have been careful with mine. Let me know if you are looking to offload your old live… I am thinking of a second for change and go charging… No interest in the moto.

Thanks for the offer. But I do like the gear live for work, and I’ll probably have the moto for functions and going out.

I noticed today that the Samsung Experience Store in Sydney is selling the Gear Live for $199, so I’m sure that that will be the price Australia-wide.

Better yet don’t buy it at all, the battery charger connection breaks a lot. Only took 12 days for mine to break. Samsung support says they’ll me what they’re going to do about repair refund in three weeks. Maybe.
