Galaxy Watch Active available in Canada now

I'm so in need of a new watch.  I did like the Gear S3, so maybe the new Galaxy Watch would be for me... especially as my preference tends to be for the more 'sport' model so I can run with it.

Should be getting a review of the new Galaxy Watch Active soon, and will get a chance to try it.

If you want, you can order yours now as they're officially available now in Canada.

Today, Samsung Canada is excited to announce that the Galaxy Watch Active is now available for purchase in Canada.
