Samsung’s newest smartwatch is a bit different than the previous Gear models, in that it can function as a standalone device rather than just a smartphone companion. That’s why it’s important that mobile network operators decide to carry the watch, and Samsung has definitely made availability a priority with this Samsung Gear S US release. The wearable is headed to the US this fall for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
First of all, we went hands-on with the device when we were in Berlin for IFA 2014, so be sure to check out our video of the Gear S if you’re considering making a purchase.
Samsung promises that more information is forthcoming, and that’s pretty much all we know at this point about US availability. T-Mobile did also chime in to reiterate the fact that it would carry the Gear S, stating also that it will be available on its Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) for purchase.
We’re definitely anxious to get our hands all over the Gear S in our review labs, so stay tuned for our full review and other hands-on coverage in the coming weeks. Anyone looking to pick one of these up when the Gear S comes stateside?
