South Korean customers may have gotten a head start on the Galaxy S5, but today Samsung’s new smartphone is finally available to buy around the world. The flagship handset is now available in 125 countries along with the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit.

We just got our own copy of the Galaxy S5 and it’s definitely an impressive piece of technology. Samsung’s new flagship phone offers a powerful 16-megapixel camera, a stunning 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 801 processors and a 2800mAh battery. The phone also put an emphasis on biometrics with this device, including a built in fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor.

Samsung’s also making a big push with wearables this year. The company’s offering the Gear Fit, a sleek fitness tracker with a curved AMOLED display and support for notifications. There’s also an updated Gear 2 with swappable wristbands and a cheaper Gear 2 Neo. If you’re looking for a new wearable device Samsung has you covered, though it may be worth holding out for Android Wear this summer.

You can grab any and all of these new devices starting today online and in stores. Samsung is also offering a “unique purchasing experience” at some of its Experience Stores around the world with raffles, prizes for best dressed customers and more.
