Earlier this week Samsung confirmed that it will begin selling the Gear S smartwatch in Canada very soon. The Gear S smartwatch is indeed available now in Canada, folks in the country can pick one up for $399. At this point in time the wearable device is only being sold through Samsung’s stores. The company has also confirmed that its stores-within-a-store at Best Buy and Future Shop locations across the country also have the Gear S available in stock.
Samsung unveiled this smartwatch back in September. It is the company’s first wearable device that is 3G enabled, so it doesn’t require a phone in order to access mobile internet. Gear S has a 2-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and a 315mAh battery. This smartwatch is powered by Samsung’s Tizen OS.
So far carrier availability in Canada has not been confirmed but more information is expected on that by the end of November.
