US retailer Best Buy has slashed the price of the original Galaxy Fit in half shortly after the Galaxy Fit 2 was officially unveiled yesterday. The original Galaxy Fit activity tracker is now available at Best Buy for $50 off, meaning it costs $49.99 as opposed to $99.99. The price reduction is valid for both color options, black or white, but it’s unclear if this is a permanent price drop or a limited-time deal.
A 50% price cut is nothing to sneeze at but we should point out that the Galaxy Fit 2, which was unveiled yesterday, will go on sale in Europe in early October for under 50 euro. Samsung has yet to reveal any launch details for the Galaxy Fit 2 in the USA, but 50 euro translates to less than $99 so it’s no wonder that Best Buy has decided to slash the price of the original Galaxy Fit in half down to $49.99.
Perhaps the retailer is aware that the Galaxy Fit 2 will arrive in stock soon and it doesn’t want the newer model to undercut the old one. The two fitness trackers are very similar but the newer Galaxy Fit 2 has a larger 159mAh (versus 120mAh) battery that promises two weeks of battery life on a single charge.
