Update, October 29: Pre-orders for the Samsung Gear S3 have now gone live in the UK as well. Both the Classic and Frontier editions are available from Samsung's UK site, and retail for £349 each. The first 1,000 folks to pre-order will also score a free pair of Level Active headphones (valid for pre-orders before 7 PM local time, November 10). Pre-orders ship on November 11.

Original post, October 18: The Samsung Gear S3 is now available for pre-order at Best Buy in Canada. Both the classic version and sporty Frontier variant are listed for CAD $469.99 (about $360 US) with free shipping.

The Gear S3 runs Samsung’s own Tizen software rather than Android Wear and features NFC for cardless payments with Samsung Pay. The Gear S3 also adds 50 percent more RAM and a 50 percent bigger battery when compared to the Gear S2, released in October 2015.
