Moto 360 is going for just $165 at Google Play [DEAL]


Moto 360 DSC06981

Just yesterday we told you of a decent deal to get $100 off the Moto 360 at Best Buy, but Google seems to be one-upping that one in a big way. The company has reduced the price of the Moto 360 to just $165 over at Google Play, which isn’t quite $100 off but also doesn’t require purchasing a smartphone to go along with it.

This comes shortly after Amazon lowered the smart watch’s price to just $179 on their online storefront. We’re not sure if these reductions are temporary sales or permanent price cuts, but the fact that we’re stumbling across so many of them at the same time suggests inventory is being moved to make way for a follow-up at some point very soon.

How soon? No one can say as of yet, though recent rumors have told of a possible follow-up in the works by the Lenovo-owned company based in Chicago. We’re almost 100% certain that they’re close to introducing a follow-up before the summer ends, so be sure to consider that when buying this first generation product. Either way, it’s a pretty steep discount that you should take advantage if you’ve been yearning for an Android Wear smart watch and can’t stand to wait any longer. Grab the deal right here.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I can wait to see what the next gen moto 360 offers. If it’s not a huge improvement, I’ll probably jump on an older model. Hopefully by then, it’ll have taken a little bit more of a price drop as well.

    1. With the updates they have made… the 360 is already pretty darn good. For $165… it a good deal regardless.

  2. Best Buy has a $25 coupon (code) to those w/email address linked to an educational institution.
    Price match if possible & apply code at checkout.
    Code works on current sales pricing, might be worth a shot.

    1. If you buy it at BB with a 40$ prepaid phone (Tmobile Zinger or LG Tribute) youll get an additional 100$ off the price of the watch. So essentially another 60$ off and you could probably flip the phone for at least 20.

      1. NICE!
        Using this,even w/o the move-in discount,I can get (in-store w/the combo Android phone & MOTO 360 & .edu discount of $25) for under $100.
        $180 MOTO 360 + $40 Android phone – $100 watch discount -$25 .edu discount = $95+ applicable sales tax.
        Not bad……..

        1. If your store has the t-mobile zinger, Walmart has them for 20$ and you should be able to get a price match on it. You might even be able to get a price match on the watch since Google is selling them for 165 now.

          1. That’s INSANE,it is indeed in-stock locally.
            I’m almost tempted to pick-up the set,but,I have an Android Wear watch & too many phones as-is.

          2. As do I haha, I’m picking up another after work today as a backup gift. If you have Verizon you might be able to trade in the prepaid phone for 100$ bill credit. All discounts combined I was paid to take the watch from the store.

          3. On,T-Mo,they’re not as generous w/the trade-in ($15 for the ZTE Zinger,for example),unless you’re coming from another carrier.

          4. Ah gotcha. Well all things considered you can still probably flip the phone for some easy cash or use it as a dedicated streaming device.

          5. I might just do it,got until the 18th to make up my mind……..

          6. And then you have another 30 days to decide if you want to keep it :)

  3. The 24mm Monolink Metal Band from Motorola band is, in my humble opinion, the best one to go with the simple yet classy design of the Moto 360, don’t you guys agree? Problem is Motorola dosent sell it separately. Why, Motorola?! Can we and Phandroid somehow make some pressure on Motorola so they start selling them separately?

    1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but couldn’t one just purchase any generic 22-24mm watch strap for the moto 360? I remember specifically seeing many people using the pebble steel band with it.

      1. Yes, you could, even though an adapter is recommended to minimize the chance of getting a crack on the back. But 3rd party ones are not monolink and don’t look slightly as good as the one I mentioned. please compare, for instance, the pebble steel band and this one and tell me what you think:

        1. Sorry, I should have been more clear. I think that the moto one looks incredible, no doubt, much better than the pebble steel band. I just assumed that with a universal size such as 22mm, one could find a suitable replacement, that’s all.

          1. I searched in several Forums, online stores and a couple of watch stores and everyone says there’s nothing like this one. But if someone finds something similar please let us know!


            There’s some here that are quite similar to the moto 360 band. Perhaps one would work?

          3. I don’t think so. If you check the 22mm out you can see that monolink ones are only the flexible ones, with no clasp mechanism, which I don’t like (it is my understanding that the connecting mechanism to the watch is 22mm, the Motorola says 24mm but they are referring to the band width, am I wrong?)

  4. If you get a Moto 360 be sure to check out our Watch Bands & Cases for your Moto 360. They are extremely comfortable, have a high quality stainless steel deployment clasp, and are sweat, stain, and odor resistant.
