AT&T has officially announced what pricing will be for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet as well as the new Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, both of which will be available for purchase through the carrier starting this Friday, Oct. 4.
The Galaxy Note 3 will cost you $299.99 with a two-year service agreement. If you use AT&Ts Next program, its $35 per month for the duration of the time you have the device, though after 12 months, you will have already shelled out $420.
Then if you want the Galaxy Gear as a companion to your Galaxy Note 3, thatll set you back another $299.99. Yes, the smartwatch and phablet combined will cost a pricey $600.
The smartwatch, by the way, is currently only compatible with the Note 3 and in fact relies on it in order to perform most tasks. If you have any other Samsung phone or if you were looking for a watch that can hold its own most if not all of the time, the Galaxy Gear probably isnt in your best interest. Samsung promises compatibility will eventually expand to more devices. Until then, most people will want to either explore other options or just steer away from smartwatches entirely.
