When purchased alongside a Samsung Galaxy smartphone with a two-year plan on AT&T, this smartwatch has a price tag of just $49.99 USD. Without the handset, it comes for $17.50 USD per month for 20 months.
Samsung Gear S3 comes just in time for the holidays for AT&T customers, although it looks like only the Frontier variant is now up for pre-order. This smartwatch is Samsung's first 4G LTE-connected one and comes loaded with Tizen 2.3.
According to Jeff Bradley, AT&T's senior vice president of Device and Network Services Marketing, the Gear S3 can act as a smart hub for home with the Digital Life and DIRECTV apps, but "AT&T is also offering the Gear S3 frontier with something no other carrier has – NumberSync. Building on our first year of success with NumberSync and the Gear S series, AT&T is providing you with a simple, network-based solution so you don’t have to juggle multiple phone numbers."
Unfortunately, the official press release does not mention the Classic variant. Those interested in grabbing a Frontier can choose to buy it for just $49.99 USD with a two-year contract and next to a Samsung Galaxy handset, but can also choose to pay $17.5 USD for 20 months while keeping their AT&T service.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
