If you're feeling nostalgic and in the mood for a binge purchase, you can snag the original Galaxy Gear for just $99 today thanks to eBay deals. As you well know, the Galaxy Gear has now been replaced with the updated Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo, but the price is low enough that it just might persuade some prospective buyers.

The Galaxy Gear is still a nice little device if you're a Samsung phone owner, but even at $99 it's a bit of a stretch to say this is a good buy. The Gear 2 is much nicer with an updated band, redesigned hardware and Tizen at the core. But if you're so inclined, you can head to the link below to grab one before the day is out.

Glad to see the US getting what we Canadians had a few weeks ago. And for those of you who don't have a Samsung phone to play with the Gear, you can root and flash NullROM to play with.

So just use nullrom on the gear and then moto g, moto x or any android phone will work with it? Sweet. I love the industrial design of the original gear more then the gear 2 and gear neo. Not a bad price if it works on any android. Even with moto 360 lurking around the corner.

This is the price it should have been at.

Hmmm... the ones sold in Canada a few weeks back were brand new for $99. I bought two.

Not even worth this price lol

jlczl says:

Not trying to rub it in or anything but how long ago was this launched and what was the original asking price? Seriously.

Might seem a silly question but is this compatible with the new S5?

Will this upgrade to the Android Wear OS? Or be compatible with it?

Posted via Android Central App

Ha no... I highly doubt that. If it did it would be totally worth it though.

The original galaxy gear will be receiving Tizen OS like its siblings the gear 2 and gear 2 neo as confirmed by Samsung.

Still overpriced lol

tonybyatt says:

Thought about it, but then I realized...

That's $100 that could go toward a Moto 360...

ive never tried ebay may i ask how would i know that the seller will ship my order and that i wont be scammed? I have a paypal account and interested in purchasing a gear fit but never tried it because of some bad feedback i heard about ebay.

Still $400 in australia (probably).

I wouldn't even want a free one, honestly (or even if they paid ME $100). Junk is junk.
