Telstra has revealed details for just how much the LTE-version of the new Samsung Galaxy Watch will cost you and when you'll be able to buy it.

Two different sizes of the Galaxy Watch are available - 46mm and 42mm - with both offering a more traditional watch-like look that contrasts sharply against the more-modern square displays found in wearables like the Apple Watch and Fitbit Versa.

Spec-wise, the smartwatch features a 1.3-inch hi-res AMOLED display, an Exynos 9110 dual core processor and a 472mAh battery. It also boasts Gorilla Glass DX+ glass, 5ATM & IP68 waterproofing and a MIL-STD-810G certification.

Telstra customers will be able to get the 42mm model for $25/month over 24 months when they maintain a home or mobile plan or $600 outright. Meanwhile, the 46mm model will be available for $27/month for 24 months when they maintain a home or mobile plan or $648 outright.

Nicholas Broomfield, GM of Mobiles at Telstra, says that “last year Telstra was one of the first Australian telcos to introduce eSIM technology for connected smart watches with Telstra One Number, and we are excited to now introduce eSIM support forthe Samsung Galaxy Watch as customer demand builds.”

When it becomes available to Telstra customers on the 4th of October, the Galaxy Watch is the third smartwatch compatible with Telstra's One Number service. This connects eSIM-enabled wearables to the Telstra Mobile Network by extending a compatible Android handset’s mobile number to the device.

“This means that customers won’t have to worry about forgetting their phone at home, or taking it with them when they pop out to the shops or go for a run – with Telstra One Number they’ll still be able to connect to Australia’s best mobile network through their Galaxy Watch.”

A subscription to Telstra One Number adds an additional $5/month to the total cost.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
