The first US retailer listing the Samsung Gear 2 / Gear 2 Neo was Amazon. Now Best Buy have listed our Tizen Smartwatch as coming soon. The prices listed match Amazon as $299 for the Samsung Gear 2, and $199 for the Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. Please note that the Samsung Gear Fit is a non-Tizen device and runs the Nucleus Real Time Operating System (RTOS).
We should also be looking at a 11 April release date for all three devices.
