Gear VR

The first true commercial VR Headset. If someone owns a Samsung Galaxy 6 or a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 there is no better accessory than the brand new Gear VR. The Gear VR is a true portable Virtual Reality device with a great number of app and games. Watch 360-degree videos, play some amazing VR games or sit back, relax and view some stunning 360 images. At only $99 it not the cheapest gift options but a great value for what you got.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”#8224e3″ bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016OFYGXQ/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B016OFYGXQ&linkCode=as2&tag=riftyb-20&linkId=2PEGUO6OKYPJS42I” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”slide” animation_direction=”right” animation_speed=”0.5″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”#8224e3″ bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FB5R9OY/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00FB5R9OY&linkCode=as2&tag=riftyb-20&linkId=QABCDBNNJSIMCINR” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.5″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Gear VR Controller

So if the person in question owns a Gear VR why not get them a Bluetooth Controller for some VR gaming. The Gear VR doesn’t come packaged with any Bluetooth Controller but a number of them are compatible with the VR headset. We wrote a post covering some of the best Gear VR Bluetooth controllers that you could read HERE. We’d recommend the POWER A MOGA Hero Power controller; it’s at a good price and small enough to easily carry with the Gear VR or any other accessories.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Unofficial Gear VR Carrying Case

Unlike the Innovator edition, the new Gear VR doesn’t come with a case. Sure you can keep it tin the box it was shipped in, but it doesn’t provide a lot of protection. It you or a person you know likes to travel with their Gear VR you might consider getting a Monoprice Weatherproof Hard Case. It has enough room for the Gear VR, Headphones and a controller if needed.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”#8224e3″ bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013Z74AEG/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B013Z74AEG&linkCode=as2&tag=riftyb-20&linkId=NURMQQST273A3R5V” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”slide” animation_direction=”right” animation_speed=”0.5″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”#8224e3″ bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00W0ZD0FA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00W0ZD0FA&linkCode=as2&tag=riftyb-20&linkId=F5HVGSEMVVYH42OF” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.5″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Google Cardboard

Why not try out Google’s VR option. If you don’t have the tools to build your own there are a number of Cardboards you can purchase. While the Gear VR is a much better VR experience than the Google Cardboard there is no easier way to get into Virtual Reality than a Google Cardboard Kit. If the VR enthusiast in your life doesn’t have a Gear VR compatible phone, a Google Cardboard is the next best thing.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Portable External USB Charger

The Gear VR uses a lot of power especially during long uses. Nothing is worse than to be in the middle of a VR experience to have the low batter warning pop up in front of your face. The new Gear VR has a USB port on the outside of the unit allowing you to keep it powered while in use. Keeping an external UBS battery handy will let you stay in VR a few hours longer or keep you phone at a healthy percentage after use.[/fusion_text][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”#8224e3″ bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009USAJCC/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B009USAJCC&linkCode=as2&tag=riftyb-20&linkId=UPTT4UT2MSAFPKHS” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”slide” animation_direction=”right” animation_speed=”0.5″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][one_half last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”#8224e3″ bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HVLUR86/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00HVLUR86&linkCode=as2&tag=riftyb-20&linkId=BZEFQDW5A3NUWHPG” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”slide” animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.5″ hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_half][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

A Decent Pair of Headphones

If you used a Virtual Reality headset before you know you gotta make sure you have a decent pair of headphones handy. There are a wide range of headphones to choose from but we would recommend a simple pair of In-Ear headphones for people who like to travel with their Gear VR. While they won’t provide the high level of sound that some high quality headphones out there provide, they help keep you immersed in the VR. If you want a better sound experience we would recommend a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones.[/fusion_text][/one_half]
