Earlier this week Best Buy USA confirmed it would carry the new Pebble Steel smart watch this Sunday. But what about Canada, eh?
We reached out to both Future Shop and Best Buy’s PR teams for confirmation about if and when we’ll see the Pebble Steel up north. Both responded but only Future Shop confirmed they would be carrying the Pebble Steel:
We’ve looked into Pebble Steel coming to Canada, and we can confirm Future Shop will be carrying it when it becomes available north of the border.
There was no word on pricing or any specific timeline, but most likely it’ll be soon once Pebble can meet demand for their newest smart watch. Currently, Best Buy Canada sells the original Pebble watch in black for $149, which is the same as ordering from Pebble minus the wait. The Pebble Steel in Canada will again probably follow the same pricing format, matching the original prices from smart watch maker.
Of course, with rumours of Apple set to launch their ‘iWatch’ in October, you might want to hold off for now.
