Samsung Gear S2 Classic with 3G reaches US carriers

AT&T and Verizon want you to stay online with a traditional-looking smartwatch.

You don't have to settle for plain Jane looks just to get a cellular-equipped Samsung Gear S2 in the US. Both AT&T and Verizon have started taking pre-orders for a 3G version of the Gear S2 Classic, which should you keep you online while preserving that traditional watch look. On AT&T, it'll cost you $17.50 per month on a 20-month installment plan ($350 total) when the smartwatch arrives on March 11th; you can also use NumberSync to make sure you get calls from your regular phone number. At Verizon, you're paying either $400 up front or $350 if you sign a 2-year deal. Neither option is cheap (especially when this doesn't include the monthly data plan), but they may be your best choice if you want a fairly posh wearable that stays online when your Galaxy S stays home.
