Best Buy Slashes $100 Off Soon To Be Replaced Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch
While it’s not quite the smoking deal from early last month (a deal which in hindsight was a price mistake), Best Buy is currently trimming $100 from all models of the Motorola Moto 360. The attractive Moto 360 is by far the best-selling Android Wear smartwatch on the market and recently received an update that adds Wi-Fi capabilities, among other things.
The $100 discount means that the stainless steel/leather band, stainless steel/stainless steel band, and gold/gold band Moto 360 smartwatches can be had for $149.99, $199.99, and $229.99, respectively. We should also note that Amazon has also matched Best Buy’s pricing on many Moto 360 variants and has even knocked off an additional $30 from the price of the gold model, making it $199.99.
The price cut shouldn’t be too surprising, however. The Moto 360 was first revealed over a year ago and Google I/O 2015 kicks off this week. Chances are incredibly high that Motorola will unveil its second generation smartwatch at this conference, so it makes sense to clear out old stock ahead of time.
In late March, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing posted an image of what appears to be the next generation Moto 360 complete with exposed lugs, various housing options, and band choices (in both large and small widths). A month later, a new render leaked showcasing a thin housing and an integrated lug design. Regardless of which design direction Motorola ultimately chooses, we’re eager to see what’s in store for the second generation Moto 360.
