Samsung unveiled its new Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic at IFA just a few days ago and the smartwatches are now available to order over in Canada.

BuyBest Canada is now accepting pre-orders for the two Gear S2 watches. The standard version is priced at CAD 400 ($300), while the Classic model will set you back an ever so slightly higher CAD 430 ($325).

Both of the smartwatches feature the same specifications, the difference is the classic has a black finish and a matching leather band, which gives it a more elegant and traditional aesthetic. The Gear S2 features a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 1.2-inch circular display with a resolution of 360 x 360, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, IP68 dust/water resistance, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a heart rate monitor and a 250mAh battery that Samsung says will last for about 2 to 3 days.
