Samsung is accepting pre-orders for its Gear S3 smartwatches in the UK after the device was sold out in the initial offer held in October.
The retail price of both variants of the Gear S3 – Frontier and Classic – remain the same and deliveries are expected to commence on 18 November. Previously, Samsung was offering the first 1,000 consumers – who order the device – a pair of Level Active headphones free of cost. But now, the company has increased the number of customers who can avail the free headsets to 3,000.
Potential buyers will have to place their pre-orders prior to 7pm GMT on 10 November. Head over to Samsung's official site to order the device.
The company started accepting pre-orders in end-October and within four days both smartwatches were sold out in the UK.
Another option to order the device in the country is via the online retail store MobileFun. The product page of Amazon UK shows that the wearable is unavailable, but consumers in Europe can pre-order the smartwatch through Amazon, folks at Sammobile reported. Both devices are priced at €399.
Pre-order the Gear S3 in the US
Samsung also announced that consumers in the US can pre-order the Gear S3 from 6 November. With a suggested retail price of $349 (£281), the Gear S3 would be available with retailers such as Best Buy, Amazon, Macy's, Samsung stores as well as through wireless network providers. The LTE version of the Gear S3 Frontier would be available at AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.
"Consumers are increasingly recognizing the benefits of a smartwatch that operates even without their phone," said Gary Riding, senior vice president of product marketing at Samsung America in a statement, "With the LTE capability of Gear S3 it is easy to make or receive phone calls and read or reply to texts and notifications, so they can stay connected while leaving their phone behind."
