Following Amazon’s big reduction on the Moto 360, Google today began offering one of its own. The search giant is now selling one of the best Android Wear watches you can get for just $165 via its online store.

That’s a terrific price for a high-end Android Wear watch, which was priced at more than $250 when it first went on sale just over a year ago, and it applies to both the black and silver models with leather straps.

Unlike Amazon, however, Google isn’t offering the more expensive metal strap options.

Reductions like these suggest that a new Moto 360 is right around the corner. Recent rumors have claimed the device will have a slightly improved design that’s thinner and compatible with more aftermarket straps, and better internal specifications.

If you don’t care about having the latest and greatest, and you just want a cheap ticket into the Android Wear ecosystem, I highly recommend the Moto 360. It’s got great battery life, a good display, a heart rate monitor, and it looks fantastic.
