Samsung's new sim card supportive smartwatch, the Gear S2 Classic 3G, is slated to go on sale on 11 March. The smartwatch will be made available via leading wireless operators AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile.

Samsung announced on 18 February that its first cellular smartwatch will come loaded with phone-like features, which will offer users the opportunity to communicate without having to use their phones. The smartwatch will also support a tiny sim card which will allow it to function as a stand-alone cellular smartwatch.

Samsung America's senior vice-president of product marketing Gary Riding said: "By bringing together fashionable design and connected functionality, this smartwatch gives consumers the freedom to leave their phones behind while enjoying a stylish, classic design."

Samsung is yet to mention any details regarding the price of the Gear S2 Classic 3G. It will presumably leave the pricing details to its wireless network partners AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.
