Samsung unveiled a bevvy of new gadgets at Mobile World Congress last month, but most came without a price tag. Slowly but surely the Korean firm is filling in the gaps, starting with the Gear 2 and Gear Fit, which will retail for $295 and $197 respectively — there’s no price for the cheaper Gear 2 Neo smartwatch yet though.

The prices come via the launch of the two devices in Taiwan, as reported by Korea Herald. They are pretty much as you’d expect, given that the original Galaxy Gear was priced at $300.

It still remains to be seen whether consumers will spend that much on an accessory — many retailers bundled the Galaxy Gear with the Note 3 and other Samsung devices for free — which makes the price of the Gear 2 Neo all the more interesting. The device goes on sale in April so we’ll find out soon enough.
