Samsung said Friday that the new versions of its Galaxy Note smartphone and tablet, along with its new smartwatch, will go on sale next month.

AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and U.S. Cellular will carry the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone. Some of the cellular carriers also will sell the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

Major retailers including Best Buy, Amazon.com, RadioShack and Wal-Mart will carry the smartphone and smartwatch.

Samsung demonstrated the products on Wednesday. The smartwatch is designed to let users check messages with a glance at their wrists or have a conversation through a speaker phone.

The watch must be linked wirelessly with a smartphone to perform its full range of functions. It acts as an extension to the phone by discreetly alerting users to incoming messages and calls on its screen, which measures 1.63 inches diagonally.
