[Best Buy] Back again...Samsung Gear S2 open box $99.99

4 remaining as of right now. Samsung Gear S2 Smartwatch with Heart Rate Monitor - Dark Grey - Open Box - Online Only $99.99 with free shipping.
I bought one last week and it was delivered just in time for Valentines Day. Mine was brand new in an open box with all accessories still covered with plastic film. They won't last long if the previous threads were any indication.

I owned an S2... I'd say spend half the money and get a wear24 unless you really want the HR monitor.

The Wear24 is better in every other way. Samsung's requirement to use their software makes these watches not even worth considering imo

Can't speak for how the S2 compares, but I can say my $65 Wear24 has been worth every damn penny.

It is a really great watch. I rarely use mine because I have a ticwatch with a steel band as well, but when I do wear it, it is great.

I had a Wear24 and didn't find it to be a very good watch at all, having owned several Android Wear watches in the past. I sold it and got a Samsung Gear S3 Frontier instead, the difference is night and day. Far superior hardware and Tizen is way better than Android Wear.

When you're comparing a $65 watch with a $250+ watch, of course you're going to get dramatic performance differences. But for $65 what the Wear24 offers is pretty fantastic.

I've been using the S2 for a couple years, great watch. My only complaint is that Samsung has never enabled Samsung Pay in Canada on it.

Is yours a Canadian or U.S. model?

I couldn't see the install option so I contacted Samsung. The rep told me it isn't available on the Canadian watches (even though they have NFC) and she wasn't sure if it ever would be.

Have been using my S2 for the last 2 + years. Great watch, crappy watch bands. The stock bands fall apart where the metal molded to the silicone connects to the watch.
