Originally the carrier said the Wear24 will become available for purchase in March, but for one reason or another the wearable got delayed. Now, in a new press statement, Big Red announced the Wear24 smartwatch will go on sale starting May 11 for $349.99 (no contract attached) in Stainless Steel, Gunmetal Black, and Rose Gold.
There’s also the option of grabbing the Wear24 for $299 with a two-year contract, if you prefer to go down that route. Subscribers can add the wearable to an existing Verizon Wireless account for $5/month (taxes and other fees are included).
The watch comes with a circular 1.39-inch AMOLED display with 290ppi and is IP67-certified for water resistance (can survive being submerged in up to 3.3ft of water for up to 30 minutes). The product relies on a 450 mAh battery to keep the juices flowing and comes with a 42 mm watch case and a thickness of 13.5 mm. Since it has LTE onboard, the Wear24 will be able to function independently of a smartphones, so users will be able to download and install apps from the Google Play Store or stream music.
