Samsung's smartwatch line up is getting plenty confusing. There are now six Galaxy Gear wearable products available and the company is rolling out the latest, the Gear S, during this fall. If you are not sure which smartwatch the Gear S is then let me explain that it's the one the company launched at IFA a few weeks ago, the one that allows the user to make and receive calls without a smartphone connection.

Samsung has today confirmed that the Gear S will be arriving on all the major carriers in the United States during the next two months, although the company did not offer a specific date. That means the big four of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile will all be getting Samsung's latest smartwatch, but the company or the carriers have discussed price just yet.

The Gear S is Samsung's most complete wearable yet, sporting a 2-inch curved screen with a 480 x 360 resolution and a 1GHz dual-core processor under the (tiny) hood, 4GB of built-in storage and 512MB of RAM, while the is also a 300 mAh battery on board to power the Tizen operated device. The key talking point of the Gear S is that it features a 3G modem and can be used to make and take calls, receive and send messages, and also handle things such as email and maps. The device is the first full smartwatch to be able to do all of these things without a smartphone as a companion.

The Galaxy Gear S will be landing soon, does its standalone wearable boast appeal to you, or is the Moto 360 still the standout choice?
