Had enough of smartwatch news recently? Thought not. Well, to help you get your daily smartwatch fix it now seems that Samsung’s second incarnation of wearables, the Samsung Gear S will be very soon landing on both Sprint and Verizon. For the Sprint Customers out there it seems the Gear S will be available both online and in-store from November 7th. According to the Press release the Gear S will be available on their Easy Pay program with $0 down (plus tax of course) and 24 monthly $16 payments. For those that want to know, this method means you are paying a total of $384 for the smartwatch. In line with the rumors we were hearing a couple of weeks back the Gear S can also be added to the Sprint Family Share Pack for an add-on fee of $10 per month. This is needed on top of the actual cost of the device due to the Gear S standalone connection nature. If you are on a Family Share Family pack of 20GB or higher then apparently Sprint will wave the $10 add-on fee through December 2015.
In terms of Verizon customers. Well to be honest there is not a whole lot to report on. At the moment they have not provided any details (officially) on the pricing or when the Gear S will become available. However, it has made it now on to the Verizon Wireless Website with a sign-up link to get the first heads up on the details once they are released.

Need a reminder about the Gear S? Well, Samsung’s newest smart watch comes with a 2″ AMOLED display along with a 360 x 480 resolution. Inside the device is loaded with 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage. The device is powered using a 1GHz dual-core processor and running on a 300mAh battery. Unlike most of the offerings out there the Gear S does not run on Android Wear but instead Samsung’s own Tizen operating system. Of course, not forgetting that this is a standalone device and won’t require a connection to your smartphone. So any Sprint or Verizon customers looking forward to getting the Gear S?
