Samsung Gear S now available through T-Mobile for $350 or $0 down w/ monthly payments

Samsung’s new Gear S smartwatch officially launches on T-Mobile today allowing customers to pick up the device for $350 or for $0 down with the carrier’s monthly installment plans.

On an instalment plan, that brings the cost to $14.58/month for 24 months for a total of $349.92. T-Mobile notes that “post-paid voice customers can add service to their Gear S for as little as $5 more a month.”

The highlight feature in the newly launched Gear S is network connectivity for making calls, managing contacts, messaging, notifications and email over a data connection. The device also packs in 4GB of internal storage, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1.

Verizon started offering the Gear S for the same $349 price on contact last Friday, while AT&T is offering $199 on-contract price  ($299 off contract) and Sprint is offering a 24-month instalment plan at $16/month.
