Samsung's Gear Sport smartwatch hits stores this month for $300

Samsung's latest wearables, the Gear Sport smartwatch and IconX 2018 earbuds, are hitting stores in the US on October 27th. The company announced that pre-orders for both products will begin tomorrow, with pricing set at $300 for the Gear Sport and $200 for the refined IconX. If you recall, Samsung introduced these at IFA 2017 in Berlin at the end of August, but we didn't know specific pricing or availability details until now.

Featuring a 1.2-inch Super AMOLED round display, the Gear Sport promises to be a strong rival for Fitbit's Ionic watch -- thanks to a solid lineup of supported fitness apps. Meanwhile, the 2018 edition of the IconX earbuds are lighter and more comfortable than the previous model, and there's a longer battery life to boot.

Those of you who are into the thought of wearing a Gear Sport or IconX can head to Samsung's site to get one (or both).
