Samsung's no-phone-necessary Gear S watch is coming to the US this fall

Samsung gave us a glimpse at its next smartwatch (there have been a few) during IFA, and tonight there's news that, surprise, you'll be able to buy and use the Gear S in the US this fall. This one is special because unlike most other watches, it can connect to 3G data by itself when the wearer's phone isn't around. There's little in the way of details, but it's coming on all four major carriers -- AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile -- and the company promises more information "soon." You can check out our experiences at typing out emails on its two-inch AMOLED screen right here, and decide if it's worth picking up this Tizen OS device instead of the Apple Watch (or any of the other wearables either coming soon or already here).
