gam30toronto, 17 Nov 2014you will be silly if you get this one. They are talking about the second version already featu... moreThat is just not true. The next version will not be out until at least next December or so. Verizon in the US has it on special for $250 right now.
meow-, 18 Nov 2014Everything samsung make looks cheap, ugly, and expensiveI respectfully disagree. By way of disclosure, I'm an electronics engineer.
The Gear S is currently on special at Verizon for $250 with a 2 year contract. I have a Note 4 with an unlimited talk and text, and 2GB data plan. All I have to pay monthly for the Gear S is $5 for it's own, standalone telephone number. After they reworked my Note 4 plan, with the same service and data, I'm paying $3 less per month than I did for just the Note 4 plan by itself. My note 4 is on the Edge plan with no contract, and the Gear S is on a 2 year contract.
I have seen it advertised in the online store for Best Buy and Future Shop. What I want to know is if the ones that are sold in Canada will be offering a data plan? I haven't seen anything to that effect yet.
If they are, how much will it be?
I bought it two weeks ago. Do not forget that this gear s still needs a Samsung mobile to work properly. Although it's been told that it is a standalone phone/watch, if you don't have a something mobile you can not even start the watch to work. Without a Samsung mobile it doesn't get any updates either. But the watch is great.
Yes i have called the stores and also have been to many of them and they have no clue about the gear s.anybody knows where or when they are selling it i am in toronto.

What's a "Samsung Official Store"?? There are no brick and mortar Samsung stores here in Canada. The only thing I can think of is the Samsung Experience shops inside the Best Buy stores but I've called around and all the Samsung reps are completely clueless about this - seems like a paper launch and not an actual product launch.
If this watch was a Tissot it would cost thousands, if it was a Rolex hundreds of thousands . Go to watch store and see what you get for $399.00 . I'm not sure if I like the Samsung but i am very excited that there is so many options on smart watches for so cheap .
$100 premium for a non-Android Wear watch (versus Moto 360). Firesale soon?
you will be silly if you get this one. They are talking about the second version already featuring a bigger screen. Are you going to pay $400 knowing it will be outdated in a few months?
Samsung - You've got to be out of your mind! That is really Z3 compact flagship smartphone money ! I will buy it when the price will be sub 100 Euros and the battery can last at least 5 days , so ... never !
