New Balance’s first Android Wear smartwatch is available in Canada, offering a built-in GPS, heart rate sensor and water resistance.
The device is available online via the New Balance and SportChek websites — both offering free shipping — as well as in SportChek stores for $399.99 CAD, though stock appears limited. New Balance’s device is the result of a partnership with Google, Intel and Strava — the latter contributing run tracking technology.
The watch comes with two band options which can be swapped out with additional bands available for purchase in colours like blue, pink and green. It has a 1.39-inch AMOLED touchscreen display and three physical buttons. Internally, it stocks an Intel Atom Z34XX processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage and a 410mAh battery that promises 24 hours of use.
