It's a big announcement day for AT&T. In addition to pledging to carry the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and the Nokia Lumia 830 as part of a bundled deal, AT&T also outlined the details on Monday for the HTC Desire Eye and Kyocera DuraForce smartphones. What's more, it also sheds light on the availability of the round-face Moto 360 and LG G Watch R smartwatches as well as the HTC Re Camera .

First announced in early October, the HTC Desire Eye will go on sale November 7 for $149.99 with a two-year service agreement. With an all-in price of $550, the handset can also be purchased on one of AT&T's Next Plans. At $0 down, qualified customers can opt for 24 equal payments of $22.92 per month or 20 payments of $27.50 each.

Also available from HTC on November 7, the Re Camera will be offered for $199.99. Should one purchase the Desire Eye on a Next plan or contract, AT&T will shave $50 off the camera.

The Kyocera DuraForce is AT&T's latest rugged Android AT&T
The Kyocera DuraForce, a rugged Android designed to withstand extreme temperatures, will also be available on November 7 both online and through business channels. Key specifications include a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and 16GB internal storage.

Able to handle water, dust, and drops, the DuraForce also includes a 3,100mAh battery and provides for up to 32GB external storage. Pricing shakes out to $390 outright or $50 with a standard two-year contract. Offered on a Next plan, the handset can be had for $0 down at $19.95 per month on a Next 12 agreement or $16.63 per month on a Next 18 option.

Switch gears, AT&T will begin carrying two Android Wear smartwatches later this week. The Motorola 360 joins the lineup on -- you guessed it -- November 7. Priced at $249 by itself, the wearable is discounted by $50 with the purchase of the Moto X (2014).

The LG G Watch R also breaks cover this fateful Friday, with a $299 price tag. Eager buyers can get their hands on the circular wearable two days earlier, though -- it starts selling on AT&T's website November 5.
