Balance Bike Recommendations - Joovy vs Others

My son is turning 3 tomorrow and I was thinking about buying him a balance bike.

I saw this nakamura balance bike for $55.99 at sportchek but upon my research I also found the joovy balance bikes which are priced closer to the $200 mark.

Is the joovy balance bike worth the extra premium? Is it easier for kids to learn on that bike or is it simply just the ride and build quality is better (i.e. pneumatic vs plastic tires). I'm only really concerned with how quickly my son will be able to pick it up.
