Verizon has been known to sell Samsung’s Galaxy Gear, Gear S, and now Gear S2, with the company having an affinity for 3G-connected devices. Yet and still, Verizon knows that not everyone is interested in signing up for an additional cellular data plan, or paying an additional $5 a month for a 3G-connected device on a two-year agreement. Of course, whether or not you purchase a cellular data plan for the device, you’ll have to pay out-of-pocket for all wearables purchased from Big Red.
The carrier took to its own website to announce the sale of three new wearable devices: the Fitbit Blaze, Moto 360 Sport, and Fitbit Charge. The Fitbit Blaze is Fitbit’s newest smartwatch that tracks sleeping, marathons, walks, distance, calories, and so on. The Fitbit Charge does all that you’d expect of a wearable, with the added bonus that Verizon has discounted the price of the wearable by $30 – making it Verizon’s Accessory of the Month. The new $99 price will remain for the Fitbit Charge until January 31st. The Moto 360 Sport is both a smartwatch and a smart fitness band in some sense, providing local apps on the device that let you go for a run or jog without needing your phone.
The Fitbit Blaze comes in Blue, Black, and Plum colors for $199.99 on pre-order; the Moto 360 Sport is now available at Verizon.com for $299.99 in White, Flame, and Black colors, and the Fitbit Charge comes in Slate and Black colors.
