Deals of the Day (3-26-2014)

Now that Samsung has unveiled its second-generation smartwatches with starting prices of $200, the original Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch’s $250 price tag was starting to look a bit silly.

Fortunately there are plenty of stores selling last year’s model at a deep discount. Best Buy has the best deal I’ve seen so far, with refurbished Galaxy Gear watches selling for $100.

Don’t like the Android software that comes with the watch? No problem. You can root it and install custom (and customizable) software.
