Samsung’s Gear Sport and Gear Icon X wearables are now available in Canada.

The 2017 Gear Sport is Samsung’s newest wearable and is available through Samsung’s website, Samsung Electronic Stores and at Best Buy, though it should be noted that Best Buy says the product will be available on October 27th instead.

The smartwatch will come in both blue and black and cost $399.99 CAD.

The Gear Sport features 5 ATM, which means it can survive up to a depth of 50 metres, which is far superior to IP68 — a rating that doesn’t specify an exact upper limit, but can endure at least 1 metre of immersion.

Additionally, the Sport includes a heart rate monitor and is able to detect activity and in-depth sleep. It also includes 4GB of storage, 768MB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS and a 300mAh battery.

The Gear Icon X is also available today. The 2017 variant of the Icon X wireless earbuds come in black, grey and pink and costs $299.99.

The Gear Icon X are available on Samsung’s website, the Samsung Electronics Store and other retailers.

Each Gear Icon X has 4GB of internal storage, allowing for music to actually be stored on the device and can connect to Samsung’s Bixby artificial intelligence (AI).
