but no one complains about the aluminum square watch that starts at $400. $600 for the stainless steel, which is the same material this watch offers.

AT&T actually has it on a 2 year contract for $249 I am sure Verizon will be at $300 on contract. I wanted to buy it from at&t and use it for Verizon but after paying data fees on at&t I will probably wind up paying more for it. I am also getting it for an iPhone and Samsung keeps promising it will soon work with an iPhone but they said the same for the gear s2 and that didn't happen. I will just bite the bullet and just get it on Verizon the watch looks too nice to pass up. Apple need a round design watch like the gear s3.
