Black and white color options only at present
AT&T is now listing Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch for pre-order with a $299 price tag. At launch, the watch will only support the upcoming Galaxy Note 3, with other Samsung phones getting support through future software updates. Currently the Gear is available in black and white colors from ATT.com, and will ship on Oct. 1 along with the supporting phone.
The Galaxy Gear is being promoted as a companion device for the Note 3, allowing owners to make calls, view messages and even take photos (using the built-in 1.9-megapixel camera) without removing the phone from their pockets. It's the first serious Android smartwatch to emerge, however its relatively high price tag and Samsung handset requirement will its appeal at launch. If you're planning on picking one up on launch day, leave a comment and let us know.
