Pre-order Samsung's Gear IconX headphones and the Gear Sport watch

Pre-order Samsung's Gear IconX headphones and the Gear Sport watch”

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced today the Gear Sport and Gear IconX2018 will be available for online preorders starting tomorrow, October 13, with widespread USA availability starting October 27. While the Gear Fit2 Pro went up for pre-order the next day, the other two had no availability details at all.

Pre-orders for both the devices will begin today.

The Gear Sport and the Gear IconX headphones are Android and iOS compatible and available in multiple colors. The Gear Sport release date is set for October 27th. That also includes expanded availability, with the Gear Sport and Gear IconX 2018 launching at Amazon, Best Buy, Sprint, and US Cellular (the Gear Sport will also launch at Macy's).

Like the Gear S3, these little buds track your speed, distance, calories, and will whisper sweet running tips right into your ear. There are other fitness watches out there that deliver notifications like the Fitbit Ionic and the Garmin Fenix, but the notifications are rather tiresome and nearly useless. The smartwatch features a 1.2-inch circular Super AMOLED display with a screen resolution of 360 x 360 pixels and a pixel density of 302ppi. Inside is a dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz, with 768MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. The battery life has also been given an extension as well. Samsung's portfolio of wearables are uniquely designed for different consumers to meet their needs and fit into their lifestyle.

The Samsung Gear Sport boasts water resistance and can be used for swim tracking.

The Gear Sport is Samsung's newest smartwatch in the Gear series, tailor made for those who want a sports-oriented watch in a smaller (43mm) form factor than the Gear S3. And these are truly wireless earbuds. With 4GB of internal storage, music can be enjoyed on and offline by transferring songs from a Samsung smartphone or PC, or accessing your favorite streaming music service through Bluetooth connectivity. However, if you choose to stream music via your smartphone using an app like Google Play Music or Spotify, the battery life will take a hit, down to 5 hours. If connected to the Galaxy S8, S8 Plus and Note 8, users will be able to control Bixby's AI features as well.

The Gear Sport is available in Blue and Black and also has custom watch bands.
