    Default Soon to be a new Gear user :)

    Just purchased a refurb GG on eBay for $199.95 including shipping. I'm hoping I get it by the weekend but not sure. I've wanted a smartwatch for a while and was hoping Google would come out with theirs but when I saw this price I couldn't wait any longer.

    Before you order off Ebay, check out Verizon and/or check at you local Bestbuy for price matching. I have seen some posts that Verizon was selling the Gear at $199,and BestBuy was price matching that. Can't lose, all they can say is no. I got my Gear at BestBuy on a price match even though the Tmobile has ended the sale.

    Fun times are coming..

    Too late for me... I honestly haven't seen it for this price anywhere and I did look on Verizon and BB.

    Same here from eBay $200.00 was always my price range for this watch so when I saw this price I jumped on it

    Looks like they've currently sold 369 of 'em so we're not alone. I just wonder where they got all those refurbs although I really don't care...

    UPDATE: Looks like they raised the price back to $249.95. Glad I didn't wait. Also they only have black and white left. I got the gray one...

    To answer your question about the amount of refurbs, it could be this..

    I took my first GG back, because it was stuck in some mode and I didn't know how to get it out of that mode, I returned it. Got another one, and quickly found out that nothing was wrong with the first one. It was USER ERROR.. So, I think it is safe to say, that the majority of returns, there is nothing wrong with the watch. Even the owner didn't' think it did enough for them, or owners like me, that don't know how to work the thing, and think something is wrong with it.. The one I returned was a perfectly good watch. Most of the so-called refurbs, they have to be called that, because they are not new, should be perfectly good.

    Just my two cents...

    I've got my fingers crossed but I'm really not too worried...

    I returned a perfectly good watch as well just because I didn't think it was worth what I paid for it. Based on the number of returns Best Buy has been seeing and after talking to a couple of the Samsung reps there I think that's the rule rather than the exception. You'll probably be fine with a refurb, and even if there is something wrong it still has a warranty.
