Samsung Galaxy Gear is already up for pre-orders on AT&T in US, and now it’s up for pre-orders on Canadian shores as well. Best Buy Canada and Future Shop are now taking pre-orders for Galaxy Gear smartwatch, which costs a hefty $299.99. Both retailers mention that Galaxy Gear is available in limited quantities and should arrive in their warehouse by October 4th.
Samsung Galaxy Gear features a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display boasting a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels, 1.9 megapixel camera, 4GB internal storage, 512MB RAM, 800MHz processor, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 315mAh battery that can last almost a day. Galaxy Gear uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect with Galaxy Note 3.
Currently, the smartwatch only works with Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but it is expected to work with non-Galaxy devices in the future as well. The smartwatch will also work with Samsung Galaxy S4 after it receives the Android 4.3 update, which expected to roll out next month.
