Verizon and Sony announced today that it will soon begin offering the Sony Xperia Z3v smartphone on its network, as well as the Sony SmartWatch 3. The Xperia Z3v, which is the U.S. version of the Xperia Z3, features all of the specs you would expect a 2014 flagship device to have and will be available on October 23rd for $199.99.

The Xperia Z3v is powered by a 2.5GHz quad-core processor and packs a 3200mAh battery. Sony touts that the battery features a “STAMINA Mode” that allows it to last more than a day on a single charge. The device is also IP65 and IP68 certified, meaning that it is both dust and water proof. It can be submerged in up to 4.9 feet of water for 30 minutes.

Perhaps best of all, the Xperia Z3v features a 20.7MP camera with 4k video recording capabilities. The screen comes in at 5.2-inches with a full HD resolution. Different from its international counterpart, the Xperia Z3v also carries support for Qi wireless charging. It will be available in a 32GB model with a microSD card slot.

For those interested in the Xperia Z3v, Verizon has put up a sign-up page where you can enter your email to learn more about the device.

Verizon and Sony today also revealed that the carrier will offer the SmartWatch 3 “later this month” for $249. The SmartWatch 3 features a 1.6-inch 320×320 display and is Ip68 certified for water resistance.

Verizon isn’t prepared to share anymore details about the SmartWatch 3 right now, however, so we’ll have to wait until later this month for that. You can check out our hands on of the SmartWatch 3 below:
