AT&T now offers the Samsung Gear IconX, the revised Gear VR (2016) headset and the Connect auto plug
Starting today, AT&T is offering three different Samsung products from its physical and online stores. The three include the Gear IconX, which is a pair of wireless earbuds that rely on Bluetooth connectivity. 4GB of built-in storage will save up to 1,000 tunes. The device also integrates with third party fitness bands and the S Health app to measure your heart rate, amount of calories burned, the number of miles walked, and more. The Samsung Gear IconX is available for $199.

Because the original Samsung Gear VR headset only worked with devices sporting the microUSB port, Samsung had to revise the device so that it would work with the Type-C USB port found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. AT&T is now offering the Samsung Gear VR (2016) for $99. Not only will the new model work on both microUSB and Type-C ports, it now has a wider 101 degree field-of-view (up from 96 degrees) and there is additional padding to make the device more comfortable.

Lastly, Samsung Connect auto plugs into a car’s OBD II slot and provides up to ten lines of AT&T 4G LTE service. It also sends out real-time notifications that alert you to possible collisions, and shares data to improve driving behavior. The device is free with a signed two-year pact. It can be added to a Mobile Share Value or Mobile Share Advantage plan for $10 per month.

1.5 hours of streaming audio from your phone per charge? No, thank you.

Yep. That's a big let down. Although I am hopping they are successful so we might see a second gen of this product. If it can deliver anything near 4 hrs. It's a win in my book.

More half baked crap from Samsung. They have the nerve to charge 200 dollars for it. The Apple Airpods will be a proper wireless earbud. Apple have been developing low power BT chips which should give very good battery life. I wonder how many Samsung sheep they will sucker with their millions in advertising dollars to buy this crap.....
