Samsung’s Gear S smartwatch will have its own plan on Sprint

47 sec read

According to a leaked Sprint Wireless internal memo, Samsung Gear S will be offered with its own plan when available. The wearable device features 3G connectivity and a SIM card slot. If you are brave enough to use the Samsung Gear S as your only gadget capable of making calls, Sprint will offer a “connected device” plan for $10 a month. The option will include 1,000 minutes, the same number of messages, and 100MB of mobile data.

Whether you’re surprised that the Samsung Gear S, a standalone smart watch, would require a separate line of service depends on what you thought Samsung was promising. Trusted sources close to the matter have revealed to Phandroid that the Samsung Gear S will have a special plan on Sprint, and likely any other carrier it heads to once it launches. The leaked document was also careful to note that the Gear S won’t pull from its own allotment of text, minutes and data while in Bluetooth mode and paired with a smartphone as everything would be going through the smartphone’s line at that point. Sounds par for the course for a standalone smart watch so all we need is an actual arrival date (something we hope to hear about very soon now that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is out of the door).
