AT&T officially announced its pricing plan for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, which goes on sale this Friday at the carrier's online and brick and mortar stores, and also at RadioShack .

The carrier will sell the phablet, which also packs in high-end specs and an improved stylus for more multitasking than in previous versions, for $299 with a new two-year service agreement. If that number's a little too daunting up front, AT&T's Next program lets you pay in $35 monthly installments.

In addition to the Note 3, the $299.99 Galaxy Gear smartwatch extends the phone's capabilities to your wrist, in addition to the usual smartwatch capabilities, including a pedometer.

While the Gear will only support the Note 3 at launch, in the future it will also pair with the Galaxy S4, Note 10.1 tablet (2014), and other select Samsung products.
