Samsung Gear S is set to launch in the US starting November 7th. All the major US carriers will stock the smartwatch, but if T-Mobile is your carrier of choice, they’ve revealed their pricing.
T-Mobile announced that Samsung Gear S will be available from the carrier at $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $14.58 ($349.92) from November 9th.
The carrier even introduced a wearable plan for the smartwatch which costs $5 a month for unlimited talk, text and data with up to 500MB of high-speed data.
“Finally, a smartwatch that is the perfect complement for your smartphone – as well as a fully capable stand-in that won’t miss a beat,” said Jason Young, Senior Vice President, Marketing at T-Mobile. “The Gear S is exactly where this industry is headed − more connected, more intuitive, more personal − and more powerful on T-Mobile’s Data Strong network with our new wearable rate plan.”
The most interesting feature of the Samsung Gear S is it doesn’t require a smartphone to function, it’s a standalone watch with cellular connectivity, and comes with a nano-SIM slot so you can make calls, and get 3G access on your wrist.
The smartwatch features a 2-inch display sporting a resolution of 480 by 360 pixels, and a 1GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and runs Tizen as its operating system.
