Teaming up with Canadian comedian Debra DiGiovanni, Best Buy showcases everything you need to know about wearable technology
BURNABY, BC, Dec. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - This holiday season, Best Buy is introducing the largest selection of wearable technology and accessories in Canada with more than 200 products ranging from fitness trackers and smart watches to brain-sensing headbands and pet wearables. Expanding beyond just counting calories and steps, wearables have grown to include several new and exciting categories making these products the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
To help introduce this growing category of wearable technology, Best Buy enlisted the help of Canadian comedian Debra DiGiovanni to help de-mystify these exciting new products. Through a series of funny videos and blogs, Debra tests out the Muse, Fitbit Charge and Moto Pet 200 Trainer in a variety of different scenarios showing how they work, different and unconventional ways they can be used and why wearables are going to be a huge trend this holiday and beyond.
"We are proud to bring the largest selection of wearables and accessories from the best brands to Canadians this holiday. Fitness trackers and smart watches are still extremely popular, but now we have even more categories like pet wearables, sport technology, health tech, and headwear," said Zayn Jaffer, Director Emerging Business Best Buy Canada. "We know that this new technology can be confusing and intimidating. Having someone like Debra demonstrate these products and have fun with them in a light-hearted way is a great way to introduce Canadians to this exciting new category."
Best Buy stores across Canada have launched new in-store sections dedicated to wearable technology as well as a new online wearable tech hub with everything you need to know about wearable technology including blogs, product reviews, videos and more. Check it out here
