Today Samsung has officially put the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro up for sale which means you can now buy it from your retailer of choice. Following the weeks of pre-orders. If you didn’t pre-order the watch, you can now walk into your local retailer or carrier and pick up both models and walk out with it. Or order online and have them shipped out without having to wait a few weeks for them show up. Assuming your retailer of choice doesn’t have stock issues.
If you did happen to pre-order, chances are you’ve already received your watch. As pre-orders for the Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro likely began shipping out earlier this week so you could have it on your wrist either before or on launch day. With all of that said, there’s more than one way to buy either watch.
How to buy the Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro
If you want to buy one of Samsung’s latest watches, you’ll have no shortage of ways to do so. Or rather, no shortage of retailers at which to make your purchase. Naturally, you’ll be able to buy both watches directly from Samsung’s own website. You’ll also be able to grab the purchase from Amazon, as well as big box retailers like Best Buy.
Your local carrier will also have some available stock. Though which models exactly may vary by location and carrier. We’re going to recommend that most people buy their watches with Samsung. That is if you want any sort of special promotional deals. Samsung usually offers wild discounts or promos.
However, if you want the watch fast with free shipping, don’t rule out grabbing the watch from Amazon. If you’re a Prime member, you’ll get free shipping. And depending on your location, the shipping may only be one day. In some cases Amazon oders can arrive before other retailers. So keep this in mind. With all of that said, here’s where you can buy both new watches.
It goes without saying you can buy the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro from its creator. And Samsung will have some pretty great promos on offer for those who want to pick up either model of the watch.
As noted above, Amazon is another retailer you’ll be able to buy both the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro from. Prime members will benefit from free and faster shipping, but there are no special deals or promotions.
Another big retailer that carries just about every big Samsung product is Best Buy. If your local Best Buy is open on the day of launch (today, August 26), you should be able to walk in and buy one. But you can also buy from the Best Buy website starting today.
If you’re an AT&T subscriber, you may want to consider buying the Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro from your carrier. Especially if you’re planning to get two watches. AT&T is offering what is essentially a buy-one-get-one-free deal. Kind of.
If you buy the Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro from AT&T, then you can get a second one at up to $430 off. So if you buy the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, you can pick up the Galaxy Watch 5 for free. Or you can buy the Galaxy Watch 5 and get another one for free. See where this is going? You could even pre-order one Pro model at $449.99 or $499.99, and get the second Pro model for as little as $20. Pretty good deal if you ask us.
T-Mobile, too, will be carrying Samsung’s new smartwatches. So if this is your carrier of choice, rest assured you’ll be able to buy the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro here. Like AT&T, T-Mobile is offering a promotion. Though it’s not as nice as AT&T’s. Buy the watch and add a watch line and you get $150 off.
Verizon subscribers, don’t feel left out, because your carrier hasn’t forgotten about you. Yes, Verizon will also be selling both new watches and will have them available for purchase. Verizon will also have its own promotion on offer, but like T-Mobile has not yet mentioned what that promotion will be.
