Father’s Day fun with Samsung Gear VR at Best Buy

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

I’m the type of dad that loves to play with the latest technology with my kids. I’m raising a family of tech geeks, and I couldn’t be more happy about it.

Every time my family goes to Best Buy, my kids make a beeline for the Samsung Gear VR.

Samsung Gear VR

Mobile virtual reality has finally arrived. Be at the center of exciting games, watch the best of Hollywood in your own private cinema, socialize with friends, and so much more. The Samsung Gear VR drops you right in the action — and it’s only from Samsung and Oculus.

Why my family loves the Samsung Gear VR

I asked my kids what it was they love so much about the Samsung Gear VR. This is what they told me:

Dylan (17): “I love how it puts you directly into the world you’re viewing. You’re seeing everything through your own eyes, and it’s so lifelike. It can put you on Mount Everest, and it’s like you’re actually there.”

Abbie (14): “I like that even though it’s virtual reality, it doesn’t make me dizzy or motion sick at all. You can adjust the output for your specific needs and level of eyesight. And it’s so easy to use with your phone.”

Faith (11): “I love that it feels so real and that you can look all around you. You can do a 360 degree turn and still be in the VR world.”
