Moto Hint and Samsung Gear Circle Now Available From AT&T

Starting today AT&T is adding two new wearable devices to its lineup, though neither one lives on your wrist. Instead the carrier is focusing on your head with Motorola’s Moto Hint bluetooth earpiece and Samsung’s wireless Gear Circle headphones.

AT&T also took the opportunity to remind us that a ton of new devices are hitting its shelves today. The HTC Desire EYE, Nokia Lumia 830, HTC One (M8) for Windows are all available online and in-store now. You can also check out the Galaxy Note Edge at 1,300 physical stores, though it’s not available to purchase just yet, and the ultra-durable Kyocera DuraForce is also available today through the carrier’s website.

Meanwhile Motorola’s Moto 360 and LG G Watch R are available to buy in-store or online today from AT&T, along with the FiLIp 2 smartwatch for kids. Finally, online pre-orders for HTC’s RE camera start today, as do in-store pre-orders for the Timex Ironman One GPS+.

The Moto Hint is actually a pretty impressive device, offering what our own Brandon Russell called the “least goofy Bluetooth experience out there.” It fits snugly in your ear, and lets you take calls or control your smartphone without ever pulling it out of your pocket.  The Hint costs $149 on its own, though AT&T will knock $50 off the price when you bundle it with a new Nexus 6 or Moto X.

Meanwhile, the Gear Circle is a futuristic looking set of Bluetooth headphones from Samsung. They work with the company’s S Voice voice control software and offer a splash and sweat-proof design. The Gear Circle is available for $99 from AT&T.

Like we said, both Bluetooth devices are available starting today, so whether you prefer a headset that’s small and discreet or one that makes a big splash, AT&T has you covered.
