Samsung announced the Galaxy Watch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 on August 9. It started taking pre-orders for the new smartwatch soon after the official unveiling. The company also confirmed when the device would be widely available for purchase from its retail partners. That day is finally here, at least for customers in the United States.

Starting today, customers in the United States can purchase the Galaxy Watch from retailers like Amazon without having to place a pre-order. The smartwatch is also being sold through Samsung's online store.

Samsung Galaxy Watch now available

The United States is actually the first market to get the Galaxy Watch. Samsung confirmed earlier this month that the Galaxy Watch would be released in the country on August 24, the same date as the Galaxy Note 9. Pre-order customers have already received their units and now it's readily available for the general public.

Samsung will gradually release the Galaxy Watch in additional markets across the globe next month. Its home country of South Korea gets it on August 31. Samsung has set September 14 as the launch date for the next group of countries.

The Galaxy Watch is available in two sizes – 42mm and 46mm – and they're priced at $329 and $349 respectively. The specs are more or less the same. There's a new Exynos 9110 processor with 4GB of storage and 768MB of RAM. The battery capacities differ, though, as the 42mm and 46mm models have 270mAh and 472mAh batteries respectively.

LTE variants of both models will also be available for purchase, they priced at $379 and $399. Everything else remains the same compared to the non-LTE models with the RAM being the exception as this particular variant has 1.5GB of RAM. Only T-Mobile has confirmed pricing for customers in the United States right now and other carriers are yet to confirm if and when they will begin selling the Galaxy Watch.
