Samsung Gear S is the first smartwatch that is capable of existing even without a smartphone companion. Gear S features a nano-SIM slot and supports voice telephony and data connections, so you don't need to communicate with any other kind of device (you still can if you want to though).
Samsung designed the Gear S not to be a full time replacement for your smartphone, but to be perfectly capable to do so when you need the most - like while you are traveling or when you are out partying. The manufacturer announced it was partnering with major carriers for creating suitable plans for Gear S and now T-Mobile US seems to be the first to announce such tariffs.
T-Mobile US detailed the pricing and availability of the Samsung Gear S - you will be able to buy the smartwatch for $0 upfront and 24 equal payments of $14.58 (or a total of $349.95). The release date is November 9, where you will be able to order the Samsung Gear S online or get it from some of the selected T-Mobile retail stores.
Naturally, you'll have to sing a 2-year contract with the Gear S. The monthly plan will cost you just $5/month and gives you unlimited talk, text and data (500MB of maximum speed). The tariff also includes unlimited music streaming and unlimited data and text via Simple Global.
We guess now that T-Mobile has announced its Samsung Gear S pricing, other carriers will follow suit shortly.
You mean, Galaxy S Alpha Active Neo 2015 Edition.
Does it do hotspot? If it does I will get rid of my smartphone plan and just us this as a portable router. Haha sweet
$5 dollars a month for unlimited talk/text/data. Man its awesome deal much better than phone's plans.
