Pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Galaxy Fit have finally been released by Samsung. You can expect to see the Galaxy Gear 2 landing for $295 and the Gear Fit to pull $197 from your bank account. Samsung has yet to release pricing info for the other watch, the Galaxy Gear Neo, but is expected to be smack in the middle at $250. Both the Gear 2 and Gear Fit are scheduled for a global launch on April 11th.
I am not too terribly surprised at either devices price points. The original Galaxy Gear launched at $300, so it would make sense that its predecessor would launch near the same price. The real question though will be how well the follow up devices will sell. While I find them ‘cool’ the more recent announcement of the Android Wear OS is certainly going to make wearables a bit more interesting. Google did announce that Samsung was one of their partners with the new OS and we fully expect a smartwatch of some sorts to be announced by them. However, I doubt they will make any such announcement until after the three more recent devices have had a chance to make some profits.
Does the pricing of the Gear 2 and Gear Fit temp you to hold on to some cash for April, or are you going to sit this one out and wait for the Moto 360 this summer?
