T-Mobile may give Samsung Galaxy Note 7 buyers a free Gear Fit 2

If you’re planning on buying the Galaxy Note 7 from T-Mobile, you may get a nice gift to go with your new Android phone.

A new report claims that T-Mobile customers that buy a Galaxy Note 7 will get a free Samsung Gear Fit 2 with their purchase. The Gear Fit 2 is an activity tracker that can gather info on your steps, calories burned, heart rate, and more. It can also show your smartphone notifications and let you send and receive texts and calls.

T-Mobile is currently selling the Gear Fit 2 for $0 down and 24 payments of $7.50 each, or $179.99 full retail. Even if you’re not interested in its fitness tracking features, the Gear Fit 2 could make for a nice companion with your new Note 7 by giving you your notifications on your wrist. That’s especially true if today’s rumor turns out to be real and you can get a Gear Fit 2 for free with the purchase of a Note 7.

The Galaxy Note 7 will make its official debut tomorrow, August 2, and we should get an announcement from T-Mobile about its launch plans following the event. It’s rumored that the Note 7 will launch on August 19.

    This, along with the rumored free 256 GB microSD or Gear VR, might make me switch from my S7 edge.

      Same here!

        Where yall read that at

          People on JOD have reported in the past, that they got the promos, just like everyone else. It makes sense. JOD is not meant to penalize you in any way shape or form. We are paying extra after all :)

          I got the Gear VR & Netflix with the S7e….looking forward to the Gear Fit 2 if this pans out.

    • Jeremy Turnley

      Yep, same here. I just hope all these goodies come to JOD customers as well as EIP ones.

      • Hoggles

        They do

    Take my money.

    What happened to the BOGO rumor? No BOGO, and I am going to have to seriously reconsider. Sorry, but the Gear Fit 2 isn’t attractive at all; I already have to charge my damned fitbit 1-2 times a week, I’m not charging a watch every sinking night!

    • Jeremy Turnley

      Samsung wearables usually last 2-3 days on a charge, mostly due to the fact that they run Tizen, which is built from the ground up for battery life. As per usual, YMMV based on what you use them for and how much you keep the screen active, but the default config is at least 2, usually close to 3 days.

    • Prode

      wow cry a river why don’t you. Free is Free. If you have to charge it when you go to bed, who cares it isn’t like you are going to be looking at it when you are sleeping.

    • David Navarro

      AT&T is having a BOGO, I too was going to get that deal on TMO, now i’ll be leaving since AT&T is having the BOGO

  • Brett s

    I wonder if that will also apply to lessees with jump on demand

    • Prode

      most likely no since T-Mobile is pushing everyone away from JOD. All of the current promos are EIP not JOD.

      • Mark Thomas

        when I got the GS7 I got both the free gear VR and year of netflix… so maybe… who knows

        • Prode

          I think it all depends on who offers the stuff. The VR and Netflix was Samsung where the BOGO was T-Mobile. I am sure Samsung doesn’t care since you still bought a Galaxy but T-Mobile may.

  • JLV90

    But what about netflix :'(

  • Hoggles

    This would be a great promo!

  • Victor

    Reading the specs on this phone I’m very disappointed it’s basically an S7 Edge with a bigger screen and somewhat faster processor

    Get Note 7. Sell fit.

    • Philip

      Sell fit & the Note 5. Easily just pay $300 for upgrade. I like this iris scanning.

    Don’t really care anymore about Samsung products. I enjoyed them for a while since 2012, but recently been having problems (note 4). Phone shutting off at 20%, camera app crashing, corrupting my SD card, bloatware, messaging apps not working (hides messages and can’t send/receive), and wayy too expensive in my opinion for what we’re really getting. They’re nice phones, but paying almost $1k for a phone that gives me these issues is unacceptable. Got a nexus 5x (from the Newegg deal) and I will never look back (although I do miss the SPen).

    • AngryBadger

      Note 4 gave me issues, Note 5 didn’t… guess certain gens are hit and miss.

      • Philip

        Note 4 gave me GPS issue. Note 5 is perfect.

    • Terra D Serph

      Sounds like a battery issue to me. Get a new battery, your current one has probably stopped being reliable.

      Your battery is just as important as everything else. It’s like the battery for your car, or your computer, or your laptop. If it can’t hold a charge, it certainly won’t be able to keep all the parts in your phone running.

  • Panzer

    Watching the Note 7 Stream now. Going to be a costly phone (as Notes usually are) with 64GBs as the min. Still it’s tempting but it hasn’t sold me.

    • Hoggles

      JOD already made the decision for me ;)

    I’m not sure why tmobile is pushing the year of Netflix, but you do have a choice of 3 gifts. 1 year of Netflix, 1 gear fit2, or 256 GB memory card. When the phone comes, in the box is the offer form to select your gift. Tmobile rep didn’t even tell me about it, I found out from samsung’s website then called them back to verify. Smh.
