Samsung announced its heart-rate-monitoring, fingerprint-scanning Galaxy S5 [1] smartphone last month, alongside the Gear Fit [2] activity tracking band and Galaxy Gear 2 [3] and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches.

AT&T is the first US carrier to announce pricing and availability for the new Galaxy gadgets [4]. You can head to ATT.com [5] or AT&T stores tomorrow to preorder the devices, which will ship in early April. Stay tuned for more details from MetroPCS and T-Mobile!

Fitness fanatics perked up during the announcement of Samsung's new health tech. Sleep trackers and pedometers are now built into the entire Galaxy line. The S5 phone has a heart rate sensor below its rear-facing camera. Coaching software on the Gear Fit wristband tells its wearers when they need to speed up or slow down during workouts. The Gear 2 smartwatch is essentially the Gear Fit, with a larger display and an additional 2MP camera with video recording. And the Gear 2 Neo has the same form factor as the Gear 2 without the camera.
