Good news for Canadians today! When Pebble launched Pebble Time pre-orders this week, the only option for us was to order directly from Pebble for US$199 (about CA$245) and throw in another US$25 (about CA$30) for shipping if you did not want to wait “several weeks” with the free shopping option. Best Buy Canada today began to take pre-orders as well, giving you an alternative.
