Motorola seems to want to kill two birds with one stone as part of its latest US-only online bundle deal, boosting presumably lagging sales of both the 64GB Moto X Pure Edition and outdated first-generation Moto 360.
Most buyers of the X Pure Edition, aka X Style smartphone probably go for the “entry-level”, 16GB model, priced at just $400 unlocked, and always capable of easily expanding the internal storage space with up to 128 gigs more via microSD.
But if a grand total of 144GB digital hoarding room is still not enough or you find memory cards slow and inconvenient, 100 bucks extra can get you a remarkable 5.7-inch handheld with Quad HD display, 3GB RAM, 64 gigs of base storage space, and Android Marshmallow goodies baked in over Lollipops.
Through 10:59 am CT on February 18, the $500 charged on the top-of-the-line Moto X Pure Edition will also cover an original Moto 360, normally worth $200. Granted, its sequel is slightly more elegant, and considerably more powerful, but the OG 360 remains a smartwatch classic, turning heads with a circular design, relatively sharp IPS LCD screen, and IP67 water-resistant chassis.
Recently pulled from the Google Store, the Android Wear timepiece can be found at third-party retailers like Amazon for as little as $140, but that’s still $140 you’ll save by shopping on Motorola.com, and choosing the 64GB Moto X Pure Edition.
