The 2016 Gear 360, which is Samsung’s original 360-degree camera model, normally retails for $350. For comparison, the 2017 Gear 360 also regularly costs $350 and adds the ability to record in 4K or broadcast live.
A Costco membership is not needed in order to take advantage of the reduced price.
It’s important to note that the original Gear 360 only works with certain Samsung flagships: the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy Note 5. On the other hand, the 2017 Gear 360 is compatible with the above phone models, as well as various iPhones.
