Phandroid got its hands on a leaked memo from Sprint that details what options customers will have for the Gear S. There are two options, which start at $10 per month. The first option is a standalone plan offering 1000 minutes, 1000 messages, and 100MB of data. That may not sound like much, but keeping in mind that this is a smartwatch, usage would reasonably be expected to be lower. The other option is to add the Gear S to your Family pack, which again would cost $10, but would allow your Gear S to share your unlimited minutes and texts, and share whatever data plan you have.Because the Gear S is a 3G-enabled smartwatch, that means it will require its own service plan, if you do intend to use it as a standalone device.
