@BillM236 interesting, so the smartwatches are following the pattern set for cell phones. Get your device free or discounted with contract.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S4
The GS5 is the interesting bit in this gen of smart devices. The original gear did not do well however, I feel that if the gear 2 can off-set functionality just enough then consumers will begin to opt for smart watches rather than, traditional watches -- allowing consumers to divert some of their cash towards tech. Now is an important time that will determine the future fate of smart watches.

Samsung Galaxy S4
The price is $189.99 to be precise, but what's amazing is that the old Samsung Galaxy S4 is now free with contract, plus AT&T is now offering $100 for first time customers on apebay.com/cellphones  I paid $200 plus the activation fee just last year.

Samsung s5
looks very enticing. My HTC Thunderbolt is 3 1/2 years old and is perfectly fine, it breaks my heart to upgrade but I think I might.  The only thing my thunderbolt has failed at is syncing with my Ford Escape system and I want that capability.
