And now it has confirmed through a tweet that both gadgets will be made available through online and retails channels from October 4 onwards.

This Samsung phablet is available through the network provider in shades of jet black and classic white, while the wearable smartwatch can be picked up in black or beige colors. They have started shipping through other service providers in the US as well.
Although the wearable device is only compatible with the Note 3 as of now, the South Korean company has announced that it will soon release the Android 4.3 update for the Note 2, Galaxy S4 and S3 to make them compliant with the Gear.
