Galaxy Gear gets a second price drop in India as Samsung struggles to sell its first smartwatch, now available at Rs 14,990

Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch has got yet another price cut and will now retail at Rs 14,990. This is the second such price cut in a month, after Samsung slashed prices of the smartwatch from Rs 22,990 to Rs 19,075.

Samsung’s first entry into the wearable tech market left a lot to be desired and the smartwatch was panned by people everywhere. To defend itself, the company revealed why it is “insanely difficult” to make a smartwatch, while also announcing that it had sold more than 800,000 units globally since its launch.

Though the first iteration is a failure of sorts, Samsung is expected to make a much better product second time around and reports have claimed that the Galaxy Gear 2 could be unveiled as early as the MWC next month.
