Gear Sport from £159.99 at Eglobal.

Chinese import most likely but cheapest I've ever seen it. Hope it helps someone.

Some blurb.

It's a bit different-looking, but I really like it!

Thanks for sharing
Shame there are too many people complaining about eGlobal, I would have gone for this otherwise... good deal none the less.
I have used eglobal for a Samsung gear 3 frontier and a dji spark. Both times the items arrived with tracking In Around a week.

I can't complain about them at all. However I can understand the scepticism as the amount of negative reviews surprised me.

I think the main issue lies when people have received faulty items and the negative feedback is on the way EGlobal handles complaints or lack of any reply from them.
Seems a good price really do want a gear sport as more features than my amazfit bip but isit worth the hassle considering alot of bad reviews from here

I can't dispute that at all. I was concerned each time I ordered due to the reviews but each time couldn't fault it.
Awful retailer, goods do not turn up half the time. Go elsewhere.

Agreed. I haven't had a bad experience with them myself. A Canon camera came through within a week in perfect condition. If you are at all concerned, would buying on credit card give you some peace of mind?
Have used them 4 times now, each time - no issues. Almost 2k spent, which would've been 3k with high street retailers

Sure but on the other side I've used the retailer once and the item was defective (smartphone without working Wi-Fi). So I had to return the phone and pay for the shipping to China(It's not cheap)!
Don't suppose anyone knows how long this watch lasts with always on screen?
Ordered!

Good luck, you ever done a chargeback on your credit card, the goods may not arrive.

I'm one of those weirdos who doesn't't believe in credit cards!
Got mine in 3 days delivered by UPS which is impressive. New and sealed box accompanied by a uk adaptor since usb adapter in pack was two pin flat plug. Since its usb cable to cahrging dock, all that did not matter. The watch is functioning well with the exception of Samsung pay which default set up to UAE. So no joy there. I guess you get an idea as to which production line these came off. Otherwise the gear sport is working great and I am happy.

Apologies. Here are the real timelines - Order placed Mon last week. They processed and shipped it by end of Tue and UPS UK had it Wed, who then delivered to me on Fri.
Note from Samsung on Samsung Pay issue:
If your device was made for a different country, the software version cannot be changed to match a UK device.

Since our goal is to make Samsung Pay available to as many Samsung users as possible, we thank you for letting us know you would like us to make it available for devices from other countries as well. This type of feedback will allow us to improve our application in future updates.

- So for time being Samsung Pay UAE wont have any UK pay functionality.
Maybe in the future they'll update it. Or someone in XDA finds a workaround
- Posting it here in case anyone was buying the Gear Sport from this deal for the the Contact less Pay functionality.
I was not using this anyways since my bank was not supported. I use google pay on my phone.

Good luck Hopefully you should see something in your tracking update today tomorrow. I think UPS tracking updates only once the package get into the uk. Then its very quick. Was mentioned in a youtube video where the guy ordered a camera.
They are quite late replying to emails as well.

Finally arrived all up and working now.. did take a while but guess they must not have had many in stock when i placed my order
I'm starting to regret my purchase from Eglobal. I ordered 5 days ago, I checked my order status today and it's still processing. I contacted eglobal and they've informed me the watch is OOS and more stock is expected in 5-6 days - their website still shows as 'in stock'

Is there a way around this now? If you can't use Samsung Pay are you able to use Android Pay instead?
