It’s Aug. 24, which means the time has come to get your new Samsung Note 9 or Galaxy Watch. Both new products, announced earlier this month, are now officially on sale around the world.

In the United States per Samsung, the 128GB Galaxy Note 9 can be purchased through carriers including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless, and Xfinity, along with Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, Straight Talk Wireless, Target, Walmart, Samsung.com and the ShopSamsung app.

The 512GB version, meanwhile, is available at select retail locations and online at AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, U.S. Cellular, and Samsung.com.

You can now purchase the Galaxy Watch at Amazon, Best Buy, and Samsung.com. The Galaxy Watch LTE version is also available today, at Samsung.com and T-Mobile.

The Galaxy Note 9 is $999.99 for the 128GB model and $1,249 for the 512GB version.

Samsung has priced the 42mm Galaxy Watch at $329.99 and the 46mm version at $349.99. LTE versions are $379.99 and $399.99, respectively.

The Note 9 offers 8GB of RAM and is nearly identical to its predecessor. The smartphone offers water resistance, fast wireless charging, expandable microSD storage (expandable to 640GB), and a headphone jack. In a change from the Note 8, the device’s rear fingerprint sensor has been moved to the spot below the camera, just like on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus released earlier this year.

The Galaxy Watch, a successor to the Galaxy Gear S3, launches in rose gold, silver, and midnight black. The smartwatch uses Corning Gorilla DX+ glass with an AMOLED screen underneath. It’s rated for 5ATM submersion with IP68 and MIL-STD-810G certifications.

Regarding battery life, Samsung says the Galaxy Watch can be used for “several” days between charges, or up to 80+ plus hours on the 46mm model versus 45+ hours on the 42mm model.
