Samsung’s connected smartwatch is being sold by AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and Best Buy right now, with a launch at T-Mobile planned for November 9. Here’s how the pricing for each retailer breaks down:
The Samsung Gear S is notable for a couple of reasons. It’s got a big ol’ 2-inch 480x360 AMOLED display and a built-in cellular connection that’ll allow you to make calls, send messages and receive notifications without having a phone nearby. The rest of the Gear S’s spec list includes a dual-core 1GHz processor, 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 300mAh battery and an IP67-rated body that’s resistant to dust and water.
With its huge (for a wearable) screen and cellular connectivity, the Gear S looks like an interesting wearable. Of course, you’ll need a compatible Samsung device to set the Gear S up and receive updates, but once you do, you can leave your phone at home and still get all of your alerts. Nifty.
Now that the Samsung Gear S has landed in the U.S., are any of you thinking about picking one up?
