Samsung details Gear S2's and Gear S2 Classic's prices

Samsung first showed off the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic a few weeks ago, but is now ready to share pricing and availability details.

The Gear S2 will retail for $299.99, while the Gear S2 Classic will set interested buyers back $349.99. These prices will see it compete favourably with the Apple Watch. If you happen to be based in the United States, you can pick up either smartwatch from Samsung, Amazon, Best Buy and Macy's.

Those in the UK and Europe will have to wait a little longer. The devices will be made available to pre-order on October 29th from Samsung. If you want to walk into a store to buy either the Gear S2 or Gear S2 Classic, you’ll have to wait until November 12th.

Samsung has plans to release a 3G variant of the Gear S2, but it will only be released stateside.
