UK retailer Phones 4u has announced that it's running a week-long promotion, starting today, to give away free Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatches to customers who buy the Galaxy Note 3. The Gear, which usually sells for £299 in the UK, will be offered for free to customers who buy the Note 3 on-contract from brick-and-mortar Phones 4u stores (excluding Dixons) from today until next Thursday, Nov. 14.
In addition, the retailer is today kicking off a similar promotion for the Galaxy S4 Zoom — Samsung's phone-camera hybrid with 10X optical zoom. Buy the imaging-centric device online or in-store between now and the end of the year and you'll receive a free GS4 Zoom accessory pack, featuring a flip case, tripod and "charging unit."
The Galaxy Gear in its current incarnation isn't perfect, and we've said as much in our review of the device. Nevertheless, you can't argue with free.
