Finally the day has arrived and the Apple Watch is almost ready for sale. “Almost” is a key word here, since you can only pre-order the device today and there is no telling how long you will have to wait for it. There are, however, other amazing smartwatches out there, for example the Moto 360 running the latest Android Wear OS. And great news is that as the Apple Watch goes up for pre-order, the Moto 360 prices go down.
Moto 360 just got $70 cheaper
Not everywhere, obviously, but if you grab the Moto 360 from Amazon or Best Buy, you are in for some generous discounts. The black leather and stone leather variants on Amazon are currently priced at $179 which is $70 less than what Motorola is asking for the watch on its website. Units featuring metal bands, including silver, black and champagne, are slightly more expensive and sell for $229. For comparison, silver and black models are normally priced at $299.99, while the champagne version typically costs $329.99.
Pricing at Best Buy is very similar, though the metal band models are a tad cheaper – they cost $219.99. If you are a member of Amazon Prime, the Moto 360 is eligible for free two-day Prime shipping meaning that you will get your watch at your doorstep at no additional cost. If you opt for Best Buy, you will have to go to your local store, but the advantage is that you can have the wearable on your wrist in a moment without waiting for it for two days.
The Moto 360 has been around for a while, since March last year to be more exact, so you probably know all there is to know about the device. Just to make sure, let’s go over its key specs one more time. The Moto 360 is an Android Wear smartwatch made by Motorola. The watch has a round face and at first glance looks like a regular wrist watch. It’s anything but regular, though. When paired with a smartphone, the watch displays notifications and alerts, and has voice-activated functions. It also packs a number of sensors including a pedometer, an ambient light sensor and an optical heart rate monitor and is dust and water resistant. How’s that sounds? Anyone willing to grab the Moto 360?
