At the launch of Gear S4 predecessor, its price was pegged at about $350. Considering the fact that this smartwatch will use better chips than the Gear S3, it will sport more features and might even debut some features, it will probably sell like Apple Watch 2, which started sales at a much higher price than the Gear S3. From my guess, we should be expecting a price tag above $380.
