After an impressively long rollout that involved multiple announcements, teases and pseudo-availability, Samsung has finally announced that the Gear 360 will be widely available from its retail partners. Starting August 19 at a variety of retailers, you'll be able to go pick up a Gear 360 camera for $349, which is the same price initially announced months ago.

The proper retail launch of the Gear 360 coincides nicely with the launch of the Galaxy Note 7 and a refreshed Gear VR headset, which makes sense as the Gear 360 is positioned to be a great way to create immersive photos and videos that can be viewed with them.
