Pebble smartwatch now available from Best Buy Canada

If you're Canadian and have had your eye on a Pebble smartwatch, good news! You can now get one directly from Best Buy Canada online. That's right - no more waiting for - and likely paying for - cross-border customs! Thanks to iOS 7, Pebble can now show you all manner of push notifications, from iMessage to email to Google Maps turn-by-turn directions. It's black only for now, and online only as well, but hey, it's a start. If you order one, let me know how you like it.

Highly recommended if you can't wait for the REAL one from Apple! ;)

Much cheaper and a lot more useful than the crappy one from Samsung!

P.S. Don't fall for yet another Samsung Ad in "Neon Lights" video by Demi Lovato! Even she didn't know what the %&*@^$ this thing is good for! LMAO

I think I'll wait to get a smart watch from apple. This one seems a little expensive for the quality. iWatch please come soon.

I take it the display is only B&W? If so, bleh. If Apple does make a watch, I really hope that they make it rather independent. Integration and compatibility with other iOS devices, for sure, but I don't think the "iWatch" should simply be an extension of the iPhone.

I want to get a smart watch, but none of them on the market appeal to me. I will wait for the iWatch to come out before I make my decision. The convenience of having so much information on my wrist is very appealing. I have several friends who purchased the Pebble Smart watch from Best Buy and really like it. I'm hoping that the iWatch has more options and better connectivity.

Waiting for a new device category from Apple might have people waiting quite some time. In my opinion, pebble finally exited beta status when it had the iOS 7 compatibility upgrade. It's nice to see that iOS plays nicely with this device and can do so with others too. Bluetooth 4.0 is some really cool tech that is gaining momentum and it's potential hasn't been tapped yet. I'm an impulse buy away from getting one of these at any given moment because of what it represents.

I was dumb enough to get the MetaWatch from Kickstarter about a year and a half ago. That thing as huge, clumsy and useless. The pebble looks much better but ultimately I'd prefer to see if Apple makes one

I was given a pebble as a gift and I have to say I like it. Getting notifications and seeing messages is great while at work when there are times where I may not want to pull my phone out in front of clients - and I can see calls coming in and send them to voicemail without touching my phone. When around the city and the phone is in my coat pocket I can tell when I have a message or call. My experience is the iPhone doesn't vibrate strong enough to feel when in a case in my pocket. I do wish the fit and finish was more expensive. I have watches that are 500-1500 dollars - I wish I could afford some real high end ones :). - One of them with pebble smarts would be great!

The only "smart" watch I've seen, that I'd actually wear is the latest Fitbit. I have become so accustomed to not strapping a hulking piece of metal/plastic to my wrist that I don't think I could do it anymore. Just give me something that tells time in all lighting situations with small icons and missed calls/texts/emails counter next to them. Unless Apple comes up with some new, revolutionary way to use abwatch, count me out.

The pebble is something I probably wouldn't pay for myself right now, but like having if it were gifted. Hopefully Best Buy will have some on display to check out now there're up here. :-)

Totally love mine and was happier to be an original backer. Keep the Pebble rollout going, it's fun and worth having.
