Moto 360 gets permanent price cut to $150


Moto 360 screen

Deals, sales and refurbs, be damned: the Moto 360 is now $150 at both Google Play and Motorola’s website, and it won’t be jumping back up in price from here on out.

That’s a very nice price for a smart watch that still makes a big argument for being one of the primary Android Wear options available today. That said, you should keep in mind that this move was likely made due to the impending arrival of the sequel (which we expect to happen at some point next month).

Knowing that, though, if you’re still interested in buying one of these and haven’t been able to catch the many sales from weeks past, go ahead and grab one from either Motorola or Google Play.

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. Has anyone bought this? If so, what do you think of it?

    1. I have one. I use it as a remote for my music while I’m at the gym.

      Not the best $170 I’ve ever spent.

      1. / This pretty much sums up my thoughts smartwatches :)

        1. I bought one for 130bucks includes shiping from bestbuy on fathersday weekend

      2. I use mine to get notifications i would normally have to pull out my phone to look at, like text messages and sports updates, etc. Its extremely helpful to say “OK Google” into my Sony Smartwatch 3 and be able to text by voice. It also screens my phone calls, again so i dont have to find my phone to see whose calling me. Do you even have a phone or a social life ? I dont see how anyone could ONLY use it as a remote for their music. That makes no sense.

    2. I bought one and returned it, due to the HRM not working during heavy workout sessions which I attribute to sweat messing with it. Other than that I loved it, had 30-40% at the end of everyday. Navigation was priceless for me, as well as handling notifications keeping my phone in the pocket most of the day, I really liked weather updates etc… I really cant name enough that I liked, it was a great watch just not great for heavy activity tracking. During my normal days it would tell me active heart rate % and keep my steps logs which was pretty accurate, but get sweaty and its readings are off or cant read them, again HRM only. I am tempted to buy it again and try another unit out with the 5.1.1 update. At this price, I think its worth trying if you have a 14 day return policy (bestbuy, amazon etc..) Good luck

    3. I got one a little over a month ago and I really like it. I’ve always had the problem where either I can’t hear/feel my phone when it’s in my pocket or I’m too slow to get it out when I finally do notice so I tend to miss calls. Having this buzzing thing on my wrist has helped me with that tremendously. My friends and I have a group Hangouts chat going at all times so it’s also useful in seeing if I need to respond to something in the chat or not and in the same vein I can see at a glance if I get an email that needs my attention or not. I also use the timer function a lot when I’m cooking something and I have it set up to turn on/off my light with IFTTT. I also tend to check the time a lot so it’s also serving it’s watch function well. Overall though it really depends on what you intend to use it for. In my case I had the missed calls problem I wanted to solve and I’ve since found more ways to make my life easier using this watch. I’ve seen people get things like this and never use them because they really had no reason to get one other than it seemed cool.

    4. I have one but I don’t know of any compelling reason for anyone else to own one, or any smart watch for that matter. I use it more as a fashion accessory than anything else.

    5. I got it as soon as the metal bracelet version released. I love it. The flat tire helps with light adjustments because I’m OCD with that. I use it immensely at work for notifications on the fly and with the new update I can connect to my work WiFi hotspot and leave my phone behind. I also use it to track down my phone when I misplace it or accidentally leave it. I use it for sleep tracking and it wakes me at optimum times. AND I have thousands of watch faces so I technically have thousands of watches in one. Now would be a good time to get it, or wait for the new one which will be better I’m sure.

  2. I have one and I like it mainly for notifications and quick replies to texts. For $150 I think its worth it. I can’t justify spending much more on it or any other smart watch for that matter.

  3. Still like my analog watches and don’t want a smartwatch, can’t see any point whatsoever to own one and don’t want my wrist buzzing, but this is a very compelling price. Guessing the Moto 360 2 will be announced soon with the Moto X/G 2015.

  4. JMHO,Still looks like a hockey puck on a wrist,but,to those that have waited for a price drop,I’d say go for it.
    A very convenient method of screening notifications,not to mention checking the time of day…………………….

  5. Finally! A sequel is nearing. Now I can jump on the bandwagon sooner rather than later. Was hoping for an announcement during I/O but I’ll have to wait a while longer, hopefully this means only a little while longer

  6. Good. Now Wear just needs to support iOS so I can start preaching. Either wait Moto, you took too long on your second release because Tag Heuer will have my money this year.

  7. LG follow suit and drop that LG G Watch R price down so I can snatch one up!

  8. cuz its not selling at its ridiculously overpriced price. Sony has the best Android Wear Smartwatch anyways.

  9. Someone on slickdeals posted this code MOTOMAKERAFTAB for 30 percent off on moto site. I got the metal band for 159.00.

  10. Great news! Now maybe we’ll see it on sale for $79 – $99.
