Samsung's gold-plated Gear S2 watch is $520

Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch gets a gold edition, costs a pretty penny

Samsung is getting in on the gold rush with a special gold version of its Gear S2 Classic New Edition smartwatch. Pre-orders are on now in Europe for €480 ($520). If it's cheaper than you expected, that's because the watch is merely gold-plated with a stainless steel body, not solid gold.

Apple recently launched a solid gold version of its Apple Watch for $10,000, and Huawei is coming out with a gold Nexus 6P for $500, a rose-gold watch with Swarovski crystals, and a MediaPad N210 gold tablet (pricing on the latter two is to be announced). If you're a tech geek into bling, now's a great time to be alive.
