    Hi, I currently live in the UK and have a friend that lives over in Canada. Wanted to know if I could get him to buy me a watch over there and ship it to me hence making it cheaper,

    Would the watch work over here properly in the UK and also does any one know if the prices on the Canadian website includes tax or not.

    I would recommend you Chat with a Specialist. It would probably be fine, but if you're like me, you don't want any surprises.

    There's no reason why an Watch purchased in the US or Canada would not work in the UK. All it requires is an iPhone, which works fine worldwide.

    The prices listed on Apple's website do not include any tax (sales, privilege, VAT, etc), but those taxes, if applicable, will be added when you (your friend) completes the purchase by going through the check out process.

    Word of warning: I live in Singapore and got my sister to buy me a watch in Australia and then ship it over to me in Asia. Lithium-Ion batteries are not your friend. You will have to use a courier (not regular mail) and couriers are not afraid of charging for Li-ion because the batteries require special packaging when air-freighted to end users. It's all nuts, I know, but that's how it is - so check it out carefully first.

    The prices don't include tax. HST is 13%, so add that on for your calculations.
