So if you’re a big box electronics retailer with some inventory of the Samsung Gear S3 smartwatch in the warehouse, your first thought is to get rid of the older timepieces to make room for the new models. So you put them on sale. That is the same reasoning that pushes people to stuff their faces with two Stouffer roast turkey entrees at one sitting in order to make room for the new frozen dinners they just bought.

Best Buy has both versions of the Gear S3, Classic and Frontier, on sale for $279.99. That is a savings of $70 or 20% off of the regular price of $349.99. But wait, there’s more. With the purchase of either watch, Best Buy will give you a $100 gift card.

Both models carry a 1.3-inch Super AMOLED display and are powered by the Exynos 7270 chipset with a dual-core CPU. They are equipped with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. A 380mAh battery keeps the lights on both timepieces, and Tizen 2.3.2 is pre-installed on both. These devices carry an IP68 certification rating, which means that they can survive being submerged in up to nearly 5-feet of water for as long as 30 minutes. The color options available for the pair are Dark Gray and Silver.

The Classic is the kind of watch that you might wear to a dinner party, while the Frontier would be right at home sitting on a wrist, under a tent.
