With Samsung announcing the Galaxy Gear smart watch earlier this month at a pre-IFA event in Berlin along with Vodafone and Telstra announcing pricing for the Galaxy Gear along with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 only weeks ago, you would have been forgiven if you thought this would have been the only way to purchase the smart watch device … until now that is.
Dick Smith have the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch available for sale both in-store and online in 5 colours; Jet Black, Mocha Grey, Wild Orange, Oatmeal (beige) and Rose Gold for the recommended retail price of $369.
Now, while I am a fan of smart watches, I personally think the Samsung Galaxy gear is too expensive. With tethering between the device and a select few Samsung Devices, when compared to other smartwatch devices like Pebble or the Sony Smartwatch 2, the Galaxy Gear doesn’t seem quite so attractive.
However if the Galaxy Gear is the smartwatch device you’re after without getting it on a plan directly together with the Galaxy Note 3, then this might be for you.
