    Until I saw the price hikes on the Canadian Apple Store... Ouch.

    Tell me about it.

    $38 extra on top of the currency conversion (for the entry model). Then add taxes.

    I'm gonna pass I think. Simply too much for an accessory that isn't even a proven market yet.

    Nearly $600 for the entry 42mm..... That's more than half the price I paid for my 6+.

    the dollar in the US and Canada are different currencies, along with an exchange rate

    And by the looks of things, only Apple will be selling the watches (other than edition)

    Which means futureshop/best buy won't have deals where they eat the exchange rate difference.

    Watch Bands

    The price they are asking for the watch bands is ridiculous!! How can a brown leather watch band be worth $329 when the watch itself is $449 ?
