Following their official debut last year, Samsung’s Gear S3 Classic (above left) and Gear S3 Frontier (above right) have arrived at Verizon.

Both Gear S3 smartwatches are now available in Verizon stores nationwide and will launch online soon. Pricing is set at $399.99 for either model, but if you’d like to save a little bit of money, you can get them for $349.99 with a two-year contract.

For a limited time, Verizon will also offer $100 off the Gear S3 Classic and Frontier when you buy a Galaxy S8, S8+, S7, or S7 edge. A two-year contract for the Gear S3 is required with this deal.

The Gear S3 Classic and Frontier both feature a 1.3-inch 360×360 round Super AMOLED display with a rotating bezel to help you navigate the Tizen OS that’s powering the watches. Other features include a dual-core processor, 4GB of storage, 768MB of RAM, and a 380mAh battery. Also included is MST and NFC for Samsung Pay, a case that’s IP68 rated for dust and water resistance, as well as an array of sensors that includes a heart rate monitor, ambient light sensor, GPS, and more.

Also worth noting is that both watches support Verizon’s NumberShare feature, and are actually the first to do so. This means that your watch has the same phone number as your smartphone so that you can go out with just your smartwatch and still get your phone calls and text messages.

The main difference between the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier involves their cases. The Gear S3 Frontier features a more rugged design with large ridges all around its case, while the Gear S3 Classic has smaller ridges that give a more subdued look.

The Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier are compatible with devices running Android 4.4 or higher as well as iOS 9.0 and up, so long as the phone has at least 1.5GB of RAM.
