Following up on its reveal in late August, Samsung has now announced that its upcoming Tizen-based smartwatch, the Gear S, will go on sale later this fall at the top four US wireless carriers. That's Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, in case you are keeping score at home.

T-Mobile also sent over an email saying the Gear S will be available from them via their Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) and that more information about their Gear S will be revealed sometime in October. AT&T also posted a quick note on their website saying that its retail stores will offer "previews" of the smartwatch "soon".

Just a reminder: The Samsung Gear S will have a 2-inch curved AMOLED display, support for 2G and 3G wireless networks and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth hardware. Inside there will be a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM and a 300mAh battery that is supposed to last up to two days. Pricing has yet to be revealed.

Could be great it if it ran full Android instead of Tizen and had a always on Mirasol type display. Also better waterproofing beyond the IP67 rating would be great. I appreciate the high density display as most smartwatches have been relatively low resolution.
