Videotron, Rogers and TELUS launch the Samsung Galaxy Gear

The Samsung Galaxy Gear is a “companion” device and is currently available in Canada across major big box retailers.

In an interesting move, Quebec-based regional carrier Videotron has added this smartwatch to its lineup today. The price is the same at $329.95, but if you’re purchasing the Note 3, or anyone of the future compatible devices, then it’s certainly convenient to buy the Gear at the same time as your smartphone or tablet.

The Gear has its own app store (now over 80 apps), a 1.63-inch Super AMOLED display (resolution of 320×320), a 1.9MP camera, 4GB of internal storage, 512MB RAM and a 315mAh battery that can apparently last all day, weighs 73.8 grams and also sports a Memographer, Voice Memo, Find My Device, Media Controller, Pedometer, Stopwatch and Timer.

Update: It seems that other carriers have the Gear available for sale on their website. I’m not sure when this occurred, but both Rogers and TELUS list the Gear available online for $329 outright.
