Leaked documents seemingly indicate that Sprint will have a $10 option to either use Samsung's Gear S as a standalone device or add it to an existing Family Share Pack plan. The watch is able to handle voice calls, SMS texting, and data connectivity through a cellular network on its own so it doesn't need to be paired to a smartphone like the Apple Watch or Google's Android Wear platform, though you can pair the watch as a tethered device over Bluetooth similar to Samsung's existing Gear 2 smartwatch.
According to Phandroid, which obtained the leaked Sprint document, there are two options to add the Gear S to Sprint's network. You can either add it as a standalone device with its own plan for $10 monthly, or add it as a Family Share Pack device for $10 and share the data bucket with existing devices on your plan:
a special $10 per month "connected device" plan that gives you 1,000 minutes, 1,000 messages and 100MB of data
a $10 add-on to a Family Share Pack plan that shares data, minutes and messages with all other devices
What do you think of Sprint's pricing? Is it cheap enough for a standalone smartwatch?
