LG bringing LG G Watch to Canadian carriers and retailers

LG G WatchThe only place that Canadians can buy the new LG G Watch right now is through Google Play. LG Canada is working to make it easier for consumers to pick up the Android Wear-powered smartwatch.

Both TELUS and Videotron will begin to carry the LG G Watch in early August. Pricing will be the same as on Google Play at CA$249.99 but only the black model will initially be available. LG is also working with national retailers such as Best Buy and Future Shop and additional carriers later on.

Here is a quick remind of the LG G Watch’s specifications:

  • Processor: 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • Operating system: Google Android Wear
  • Cellular connectivity: None
  • Other connectivity: Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • Display: 1.65-inch (280×280) Super AMOLED
