Earlier this week, it was announced by Apple and Best Buy that the Apple Watchwould go on sale in Best Buy stores in the United States beginning August 7.
As confirmed by Mobile Syrup, the Apple Watch is also headed to Best Buy Canada. The report indicates that the wearable will be available across Best Buy retail shops across the country, but that the opportunity to try on the device will be limited to 20 stores — of which the list isn’t known just yet. The Apple Watch and Watch Sport will be available from the retailer in 16 different variants, and Best Buy will also have plenty of accessories on sale, too.
“In an email to MobileSyrup, Tony Sandhu, senior vice president of merchandising at Best Buy Canada, stated to us, “We know our customers want Apple Watch. It has become one of the most popular searched products on BestBuy.ca. We’re excited to bring the highly-coveted Apple Watch to more Canadian consumers, especially with the holidays coming up.“
Apple was also more than willing to confirm the upcoming release of the Apple Watch in Best Buy stores in Canada:
“Customers love Apple Watch, and we are thrilled to begin offering it at Best Buy locations across Canada starting August 14. More than 50 Best Buy stores will carry Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport models in time for the holiday shopping season.“
So, if you’re in Canada you’ll only have to wait an extra week after Best Buy launches the Watch in its stores in the United states. Do you plan on picking one up?
