- Samsung has put the LTE versions of the Galaxy Watch up for pre-order.
- The 42mm smartwatch starts at $380 while the 46mm model costs $400.
- Pre-orders come with a free watch band and begin shipping on September 2.
When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Watch LTE version alongside the Note 9 earlier this month, the company didn’t release any pricing or availability information. Now that the LTE variants of the 42mm and 46mm smartwatches are available for pre-order from Samsung (via Droid-Life), we know that both watches will begin shipping on September 2 and will cost $380 and $400.
Both of the Galaxy Watches are running Samsung’s Tizen OS 4.0, feature a 1.2-inch or 1.3-inch Super AMOLED displays, and include a 270mAh or 472mAh battery. Both devices will also be powered by a dual-core 1.15GHz CPU, 1.5GB RAM, and 4GB of internal memory.
As per the pre-order listing, we know that the 42mm Galaxy Watch will cost $380 and will be available in Rose Gold and Midnight Black. The 46mm variant will only be available in Silver and cost $400. Fortunately, these LTE-equipped models only cost $50 more than their WiFi+Bluetooth equivalents.
Samsung Galaxy Watch is here: A smartwatch that ticks like an analog watch
Oddly enough, the Galaxy Watch listings state that the wearables are made specifically for T-Mobile. As Samsung announced the LTE-quipped models would also be available at AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and other carriers worldwide, we can only assume that these other variants will have a delayed release. Hopefully, it doesn’t take long to see the watch appear with other carriers.

Based on the listings, it looks like only the Rose Gold 42mm watch and the 46mm Silver wearable are currently available and shipping on September 2. We will have to wait and see when the Midnight Black 42mm model will go on sale.
