Samsung’s Gear S3 smartwatch will be released in the US two weeks from now, on November 18th, and will be available for preorder starting this Sunday, the 6th. It’s supposed to be available through Samsung’s website, as well as Amazon, Best Buy, and Macy’s. AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile will announce pricing and availability for an LTE version of the watch at a later date.

The Gear S3 was announced two months ago, as the centerpiece of Samsung’s IFA presentation. The watch is very much a refinement of its predecessor, maintaining a similar style while adding in GPS, magnetic payments, and a bigger display. Perhaps the most noticeable difference is that the entire watch is bigger and thicker this time around — if you want a small smartwatch, the Gear S3 isn’t for you.
