Samsung's Gear Circle, the necklace-style Bluetooth headset, is heading to the U.S.
Alongside the Gear S smartwatch, Samsung announced a wearable accessory that, at the time, had limited availability. Today, however, the company announced that the Gear Circle will soon be available for purchase through T-Mobile.
The Gear Circle’s main function is a Bluetooth headset that vibrates when you get an incoming call or text. It (sort of) resembles a necklace, because the two ends can connect together magnetically when it isn’t in use. The Gear Circle uses Bluetooth 3.0, and has the ability to connect to two different devices at the same time. It also features a 180mAh battery that charges via microUSB, which Samsung is quoting to get around 9 hours of media playback time.
Though this isn’t the first Bluetooth sport headset to be created, the Gear Circle looks to be a premium device. The device will come in black and blue variants and will be available in select T-Mobile stores around the U.S., while AT&T will receive it towards the end of this month. You can soon buy it online on Samsung.com or BestBuy.com, and it will be available in white only in Best Buy retail stores. Pricing information has yet to surface, but we will be sure to update you when we hear anything.
