Hey Canadian, time has finally come when you are able put your down payment for a shiny new smartwatch from Samsung. That's right, the Galaxy Gear has become up for pre-order in Canada, from retailers Best Buy and Future Shop. It will set you back $299, and it is expected to get to stores on October 4th. Initial stock will be limited, so better hurry and call dibs in your Galaxy Gear by hitting up that source link to place a pre-order.
As a reminder, the Galaxy Gear has a 1.63? Super AMOLED screen of 320 x 320 resolution, a 1.9-megapixel camera around the strap, 4GB of storage, a 315mAh battery that (unfortunately) lasts a day on average use, and six different color options. At launch, it will only be compatible with the Galaxy Note 3 (along with the Galaxy S4 and Note 2 once they're updated to Android 4.3), and can connect to it via Bluetooth (or NFC) and permit you to sync messages, take calls, perform voice actions for example setting alarms, monitor exercise, and more.
