Carphone Warehouse is giving away a free Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch with the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4, hard on the heels of reports that Samsung’s first attempt at wearable tech has failed to find buyers.
Despite a slew of excitable analysts' predictions to the contrary, smartwatches failed to set the world alight in 2013. But it’s a safe bet that most tech fans wouldn’t turn one down if they were going free.
And it’s for that reason that we figure you might be interested in Carphone's latest promo, which sees the retailer bundle the grey edition of the £300-smartwatch with Samsung’s flagship phones for free.
The promo runs until midnight tonight (December 9th) and applies on a range of contracts for either phone starting from £37 per month over 24 months.
Choose that entry-level O2 contract and you’ll get unlimited UK minutes and texts every month, plus a monthly allowance of 2GB of mobile data.
News of the Gear giveaway follows claims last month that the device, which was dogged by disappointing reviews and a high price point, had shifted just 50,000 units within two months of hitting shop shelves.
Samsung responded by claiming that the device’s real figure was closer to 800,000.
