All Samsung Gear Discounts, Offers and Sale - July 2019
Mostly unavailable now. Headphones not in stock ;(
Got this bundle, sold headset for £60 on eBay (no use and not fond of the on-ear design), not bad for essentially £140. Unfortunately the first one was faulty out of the box with a damaged screen (a dark spot) so Argos gave me another one (open box, wasn't too happy but this one seems okay).
Rocking it at the moment, I love it!
Got this deal last time around. Best smart watch ever!
I use mine during the day only and charge it 'every now and then', its not a case of every night it goes on charge. I'd say 2-3 days depending on what I've been doing. Don't know if it's great compared to other watches but I am definitely happy with it. I love it, got about 10+ straps and endless watch faces. Just don't like that the HR monitor is useless with (certain/my) tattoos.
I was so busy with Prime Day I forgot to reply to this. Huawei Watch 2 battery life isn't great, but it is serviceable as long as you aren't a heavy user of the watch. I would still choose Watch 2 over GT because the latter uses Lite OS (Huawei's wearable OS) and I'm more of a Wear OS (Google's watch OS powered by Android) person. Battery life is far worse on Wear OS wearables in general.
I'm unsure if the GT has nfc? But yeah I'd do that, @jamie15 I believe had the watch 2, and said battery life was pretty poor iirc.
So you would say the gt over the huawei 2 then?
I wanted nfc for Google pay. Ideally the ability to receive and reply to messages etc would be good. If you follow the watches category or search the watches category the smart watches are there
Does it include Smartwatches though? Anyway, the huawei watch GT is a good option at £119, with excellent battery life. Or is it wear OS you need?
OP forgot to mention you also get a £10 argos voucher 8)
Got this deal the last time, fantastic watch, it has never died on me, even use it for a full round of golf with the GPS Golf app called GOLF NAVI from Samsung Gear store. Always lasts until I go to bed. GPS very accurate, I held it side by side with my Garmin S2 golf watch and they were within 3-5 yards of each other. Can't argue with that. Prefer using it for golf now as it also tracks my steps. Also the headphones are fantastic, use them for the gym so I don't damage my Sony xm3s with the sweat!
Agree re battery life, get 2 or 3 days before need to recharge which is pretty good. Great watch. Got this for same price when John Lewis were doing promo before xmas, headphones ok
The galaxy watch (which my wife has) and the frontier s3 (which I have) differ only very slightly with the newer having a couple of extra features which TBH an average user wouldn't really notice and with them both just recieving the same update recently they perform fairly similarly too. If you want a smaller model go for the galaxy 42mm but if not save some money and get the frontier s3.
My watch, which I've had for over a year so lasts over 3 days between charges and that's with heart rate monitoring. I think you either had a bad watch battery or you were doing something seriously wrong
just got mine and i love it , looks new :)
How much better?
Back in stock ...
30-40 quid more from argos ebay
I mean it's also considerably more.expensive too.
Cheers for that, I prefer to have a functioning one, it was tempting, currently £152.44 delivered ( no fee free)
I don't think Samsung Pay will work as it hasn't launched in Germany yet.
What's the limited functionality of this over a UK version?
It's presumably the German version.
About to bite, but is this the same model as Romanian? ie. no samsung pay support in the uk ta
Don't forget the extra ebay £5 quid off in addition (y) I picked one up as part of the alt Frankenquest mod for the Oculus Quest, worth a shot at this price.
Any ideas if this comes with a touchpad?
Good price for new. There are loads of these around 2nd hand now as they only work on a limited number of fairly old phones.
For what it's worth, this offer is still valid and in stock in Clacton, Harwich, Felixstowe, Colchester and Ipswich stores. £10 voucher ends today though (2nd July).
In stock sale or Altrincham try M33 or WA15 postcode (y)
Which store? can't see stock near M14 postcode..ta
Yes there in stock near me (South Manchester) (y)
I'm a bit late to the table here, but cannot find the Headphones locally to me in Preston area or York (work) Also out of stock for delivery, anybody got local stock near to them?
Appreciate that, and gave you a mention.
Cheers, will do that, appreciate the heads up.
Hi @Mrswitch the price has now dropped to £11.99. May be worth a repost.
I'd suggest checking gumtree or eBay instead? I know buying something like this used might notice be to everyone's liking but the pad that tests on your face can be removed and possibly go in the washing machine. Also these things don't get used much. I've had one for several years and likely used it for 1hr max...
(lol) Yeah, just being a bit cheeky tonight (angel)
I found a deal for £144 for the Huawei Watch 2 4G LTE, whilst watching the price on this Gear S3 Frontier. Now don't know if still worth going for the Huawei watch after the limits imposed by Google and if those will affect it as well..what are your thoughts, @Mrswitch ?
Yeah mate! Cheers
Price has gone up to £184.99, I resisted to click...maybe this deal to be expired?
Sorry (lol) (lol) (lol) (lol)
Found if you go through sales then next day speak to pre install team they offer an even better deal. Initially i was offered the full package include additional add on's for £70 a month after the £150 credit. Spoke to pre install said sky/bt offering a better deal so they dropped the price to £58. Happened last time i was with virgin 2 years ago. Dont bother going back to sales team they not bothered after your signed up but the pre install team do sort it out.
Sky TV Package Unlimited Virgin Sim Broadband + phone + basic TV Package - Virgin (old deal just expired)
I'm currently on 200mb DL / 12mb UL. 2 x V6 boxes. TV is only Freeview channels and a few of the ones nobody cares about. Phone with free weekend calls. Paying £40 per month. Out of contract since Tuesday. Discounts from last update run out in November. Looking at the new packages I'll stick with what we have for now.
What package are you / were u on to be saving £60 a month?
So I called up and had pretty much a non event! Existing customer - wanted the new package, all going through (then systems failed AGAIN!). Will get a call back tomorrow - but no problem with me as an existing customer getting the new deal. Not sure if I get the watch (but tbh not honestly fussed about that). This deal saves me nearly £60 a month on it's own.
Agreed, had my gear fit 2 pro for about a year and very disappointed with the glitchy interface, poor HR tracking and the downright terrible MP3 playback
I've had a GF2, (non pro) for about a year now and paid £45. As it's not very accurate and has poor battery life, I'd say £45 was about the right price. £94 for this is therefore too expensive in my book. Really nice OLED screen though.
I've had my Samsung Gear Fit for a few years and I love it. Waiting for a good price on the Gear Fit 2, but I need a small and that's a bit more. Good price for the large.
This one runs on Tizen OS... It is terrible-avoid (fierce)
Whatever the price, these things are terrible. poor GPS accuracy, worse heart rate accuracy and the interface is slow and unresponsive. Starting it for races doesn’t always work. Avoid.
Yes, it doesn't.
Has anyone tried unidays with trade in and current discount code GALAXY90? Does that work?
Oddly, it seems to be cheaper using the trade in option on it's own rather than combining the trade in with the student discount. For my S8 plus, they're offering me £275 trade in value, but if I use the student discount its £150 for the phone and £89 off with the student discount, this works out to be a bit more expensive.
I got 10% student discount and £50 part exchange for an old android phone. It wasn't for this specific deal but a month ago for the S10e
Why is android always low value compared to apple products.. (resale value
I've just noticed it's available for download (y)
I am also waiting but there is no sign of one UI update in UK.
Has anyone got the new One UI update for there watch yet? It's been out around 5 days
It is but price of watch increased from £199.99 to £239.99 that's why expired
I think the code that op has put up has been entered incorrectly, as it's saying "Looks like that's the wrong code. Please double-check and try again." rather than "this coupon cannot be applied to your order".
Code doesn't work for me either
Have you put up the right code?
Ebay does not allow me to use coupon codes because I spend too much! (flirt)
Seems to work on my wifes account too as bought another for my bro
I bought one off eBay but didn't realize it wasn't UK version. Flashed the region to UK and tried to set up my debit card only to find Nat West isn't yet supported.
I imagine the question with any fitness watch is how accurate the wrist-based HR is. Any of the good folks on here able to comment, please? I can google it and get any number of suspect reviews, so a "real-world" opinion would be really good. Thanks in advance. In return I can offer up the wrist-based HR accuracy of my Amazfit Bip - b****y awful! :( My old Garmin Vivoactive (original) was pretty good but needed a chest strap and the thing never consistently connected properly with my phone to sync and would drop out all the time. I really ought to sell it. Not that anyone would want to buy it after reading that!
Out of stock
Thanks OP. Ordered. Hope it is in perfect condition.
Did you manage to configure Samsung Pay on it at all? I got one from Laptops Direct, ended up being an import from Romania that doesn't allow Samsung Pay on it, even after changing the CSC on it.
Will it work on s10 plus phone
R332 according to the listing
What model number is this and will it work with a Note 8?
A super AMOLED display? It doesn't have a display!
I would like to know this too.
Who else do they price match with? They are now out of stock at laptops direct!
For anyone who'd prefer John Lewis, you can price match with them. Just had a confirmation email.
Lloyds doesnt support Samsung Pay either and from what I've heard it's not as simple as present your watch to the reader like Android Pay? Voted Hot for the price though :)
Folks I own one of these and whilst it is a very nice watch and has lots going for it the software is so buggy it’s unbelievable. And I don’t even just mean the watch apps I mean the main operating system for the watch. Lately I’ve been trying to turn on things like the ‘watch always on’ using the ‘watch always on’ setting. Seems simple right? Not a chance, the option is ignored. Then there’s the notifications that make the watch vibrate but don’t show anything on the screen. Another really nifty little useless ‘feature’ from Samsung. It’s a shame because it is a nice watch body and if it only just worked it could be a really nice and very usefuldevice.
no, i want for same reason and it can only be in water for 30 min, the manual says to avoid swimming and showering with it making it pointless for the likes of us
Did you not get the 323 with the attachment pieces, must have been one of the unlucky ones as mentioned earlier in the thread lol. Oh well like you say prices dropped and it was a good call to return anyway haha. Shame I didn't get the 325, would have happily kept that as a novelty item for £20 :p
No, tried but older model sent didn't fit I see they're now going for £9.99 on Argos eBay site so money saved I didn't need one lol
It does fit the S9 but you need to change the connector bit for the USB-C one (it's in the little white box of bits). Mine is going back however as I got the 323 instead of the 325 that I was told I would get on live chat.
Hello, I had ordered one but got R323 model. There is a micro usb adapter.. Will this model work with Samsung A8? As per information only 325 supports A8 but just checking if it has worked for someone and in that case I can keep.. Also at the time of ordering had we set any passcode.. I don't remember setting one.. I called Contact center and I failed security check as didn't remember passcode.. and there is no process to retrieve one.. what should I do.. they are not processing the refunds order without passcode.... Infact I had not even received confirmation email.. still they had sent the package to store and when I went to store based on Order number they gave me the package after doing ID verification. Thanks
Received but doesn't fit my S9 Can I return it to store? Website says I ave to contact them before I return it but no number and I'm not with O2 (flirt) **update** just rang the payg number and getting a prepaid jiffy bag sent to retun it
Yes it came with all the accessories. Battery life, got 3+ days but that was me experimenting with setting.
What's the battery life like? Did it come with the box and accessories? Cheers!
Got Samsung Galaxy watch 46mm from Argos eBay for 180ish. Said refurb but was as good as new, came with 1 year Argos warranty (including 2 years OEM guarantee)
No need to worry about that as that disaster will not happen.
That's what I was thinking.
