The Android Wear watch you’ve been waiting for goes on sale today
The Motorola Moto 360, the Android Wear watch you’ve been waiting for, finally goes on sale today priced at $249.99. It will be available in two options — black with a black strap and a limited edition silver with a grey suede strap — and you’ll be able to order it directly from Motorola, through Google Play, or from Best Buy.
While the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live debuted Android Wear earlier this summer, it’s the Moto 360 that everyone’s been most excited about. Its circular face makes it look like a more traditional timepiece, while its stunning stainless steel design delivers and much more premium feel.
It’s not just prettier than its Android Wear rivals, either. Early reviews indicate that it has a much better display — one that’s actually visible outdoors — and that it’s not actually as big or as heavy as it looks in pictures. When you couple its specifications with its design, you’re getting a much better device for just $20 extra (in comparison with the G Watch).
The Moto 360 will also be available with a metal stray later this fall, and that model will be priced at $299.99. If you can’t wait until then, you can pick up one of the cheaper models now and then buy a metal strap separately when they go on sale for $79.99.
