If you're in the market for a new smartwatch, the Samsung Gear S2 and Gear S3 have hit the sale on Amazon, representing your chance to pick one up on the cheap

The latter is currently down to just $218.99 from $349.98, representing a sweet saving of around $131. Right now, it's just the Frontier version of the watch, with the Classic model still listed at the previous retail price. Note that this is also the Bluetooth version of the Gear S3, and not the LTE edition.

With the 46mm of the newer Galaxy Watch starting at a pricier $269.99, too, this is a nifty saving for a watch that offers much of the same features. Once you're connected to a smartphone, you'll be able to manage notifications, such as texts and emails, while the smartwatch also has a built-in microphone for hands-free calls.

And if the bulky Gear S3 Frontier isn't for you, Amazon, as we said, is also running an offer on the Gear S2, which presents a smaller fit on the wrist. The second-gen Gear device is down to just $139.99 from $249.98, making it by far the most affordable Samsung smartwatch you can pick up.

In our Gear S3 review from December 2016, we said: "After delivering us its best-ever smartwatch with the Gear S2, Samsung has sacrificed that sleek design to cram in more features. That bigger body has delivered better battery life, GPS and a screen where Tizen can really shine."

So, whichever design of the two you prefer, Amazon is running a deal for you. However, like with all savings running through the online retail giant, just how long the price snip will last for is unknown.
