Revealed alongside the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE is now available for pre-order. Priced at US$379.99 (42 mm in Rose Gold or Midnight Black) and US$399.99 (Silver), this smartwatch is designed for T-Mobile and will begin shipping in the first week of September.

If you were looking for a worthy smart wearable companion for the Galaxy Note 9, you will be happy to find out that the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Watch is now up for pre-order. However, this smartwatch comes with a catch and some will not be able to swallow it: there is no variant for Verizon Wireless, Sprint, or AT&T, because the LTE Galaxy Watch has been designed with T-Mobile in mind.

Those interested can pre-order the 46 mm Galaxy Watch in Silver for US$399.99, but those who can live with the smaller 42 mm variant can choose between the Rose Gold model and the one that comes in Midnight Black. Both 42 mm Galaxy Watch models have the same price tag of US$379.99.

The pre-orders come with a free band, as it follows:

  • black Urban Traveller Leather Band for the Silver Galaxy Watch LTE
  • brown Essex Leather Band for the Midnight Black variant
  • rose Urban Dress Band for Galaxy Watch for the Rose Gold Galaxy Watch LTE

In the future, other carriers will probably offer their own Galaxy Watch LTE variants as well. For now, it is just the T-Mobile way or no way.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
