    Western Motorola buffs already have reason to envy their India-based counterparts, as Marshmallow updates are coming left and right in the latter market, including for the regional Moto G Turbo Edition and, most recently, the standard G second-gen. But now nation-leading online retailer Flipkart takes things to the next level, also offering a slew of discounts on Moto gear to honor the second anniversary of the American device manufacturer’s return to India. Basically everything’s on sale for a limited time, starting with the always popular Moto X Style, which now costs Rs. 27,000 ...

    For every device comes its time to go. For these two Android Wear smartwatches, they've had their time around. The original Moto 360 from Motorola is now nearly 18 months old while the Sony Smartwatch 3 is about a month younger. The Google Store has determined that it's about time that the two were discontinued from sale on its virtual shelves. The ever-popular Moto 360 went through sales that took the price down from $250 to $100. The Smartwatch 3 received nowhere near the attention as Motorola's creation did, but given how far it has gone as Sony's overall mobile sales have fallen, it's ...

    If the BlackBerry Priv and Passport really don’t sound like fitting Valentine’s Day presents for your loved ones, perhaps Motorola can interest you in time-limited discounts for its top three gadgets right now. First up, the second-generation Moto 360 smartwatch is available with a gratis leather band if you choose to receive it strapped by a metal one out the box. The greatest thing about the Android Wear timepiece is it understands the difference between men’s and women’s fashion, featuring contrasting stylings and coats of paint for each gender. With a metal band as standard, ...

    Unveiled way back in September alongside a standard, non-GPS-packing but slightly more stylish version, the Motorola Moto 360 Sport was inexplicably kept on the sidelines for all this time. At long last, it expanded from Europe to America’s largest wireless carrier yesterday, and now it’s up for grabs through the manufacturer’s own US e-store too. Unfortunately, Motorola isn’t in a generous mood when it comes to the sporty smartwatch, selling it for the same $300 as Verizon, and at least for the time being, neglecting to include it in any smartphone bundle deals. Coated in your ...

    You know, I never though I’d ever recommend an Android Wear smartwatch for fitness, but it seems a company finally decided to do something about that as Motorola has just sent us our review unit for the Moto 360 Sport. The Moto 360 continues to be one of the most iconic Android Wear designs in the market, and its new Sport variant intends to bring some of that charm to the road. This actually extends to the packaging, which looks almost identical to the box that we saw in the second generation Moto 360. There are three color variants, but we’re happy to see that our review unit is the ...

    Generous as always for Cyber Monday stateside, Motorola wants to take care of its UK and India-based fans this Christmas also, selling the second-generation Moto 360, as well as the X Style, X Play, Moto G 2015, and Moto E (2nd gen) at lower prices than usual. The device manufacturer’s British Moto Maker website has the small (42 mm) men’s Moto 360 variant available for £200 after a £30 discount, and the large (46 mm) model priced at £230, down from £270. Ladies aren’t forgotten either, and the 42 mm Android Wear smartwatch “designed for women” costs £210 instead of £260. ...

    They say holiday shopping is a marathon, not a sprint. They don’t? Well, they should, and we do. Especially nowadays, with many an electronics merchant hell-bent on taking your money before Thanksgiving, as soon as you wrap up your Turkey Day feast, days after, and then on and around Christmas. Forget the biggest shopping day of the year, as stores, chiefly online, are taken by storm practically throughout November and December. Still, December 1, 2014 was responsible all by its lonesome for a record-breaking $2.68 billion worth of e-sales in the US, and there’s no reason to expect any ...

    Never too fond of Black Friday, Lenovo daughter company Motorola always saved the biggest discounts for the Monday after Thanksgiving, colloquially known as Cyber Monday. This year is no exception, although you’re actually looking at “Cyber Week” deals on two of the three Moto items on sale, which are good from November 30 all the way through December 7. But it’s the 24-hour second-gen Moto G blowout that should make the most headlines, given last year’s budget champion will go for a super-palatable $100, 80 bucks off list. Of course, third-party retailers like Amazon have long ...

    Updated December 9: The Nexus 6 has been dropped from the Google Store. Step back from the food court, I repeat, step back from the food court. Move away from the deals. Seriously, though, you might be on a sales safari come this weekend or a cyber chase on Monday. If you're the type of person to give away phones and smartwatches for the holidays, though, it helps to actually consider what you're getting and how it fits the person you're getting it for. Like a sommelier does with wine, we're given you our suggestions on what phones to look for when you're talking about your dorky cousin ...

    You can't talk about smartwatches without talking about the Moto 360. One of the two Android Wear launch devices, the 360 wowed us not just because of the platform on which it ran, but also because of that at-the-time unparalleled circular display. Sure, we've seen the arrival of plenty of round smartwatches since, and Motorola itself has moved on to sales of its second-gen models, but the Moto 360 still holds a special place in our smartwatch-loving hearts. If you think there's room for one on your wrist, now may be a great time to pick up last year's model, as the Moto 360 hits a very ...

    There’s no question Microsoft checked almost every box it needed to for its highly anticipated Windows 10-centric event to be deemed an overall success, but not all new devices showcased on Tuesday looked like blockbusters in the making. Though clearly an evolved, refined version of last year’s cumbersome original, the Microsoft Band 2 retains this distinct work-in-progress vibe, as it tries too hard to cater to the masses, and appease fans of fancy smartwatches, as well as fitness addicts. You know what’s wrong with a “best of both worlds” product? Those kinds of expectations ...

    Whether you call it blasphemy or simply Google showing up Apple, using a smartwatch powered by Android Wear on an iPhone just doesn't seem natural or "right", but it's very much possible, though somewhat limited. A fortnight ago I gave up my Nexus 6 for an iPhone running iOS 9 - though only for a week. The experience wasn't nearly as miserable as I thought it would be - Google made sure I had most of the apps I was familiar with on the competing platform. After I set everything up, I strapped on my Moto 360 and came to the discouraged realization that I wouldn't be getting any ...

    Unlike its rival Huawei, Motorola didn’t necessarily strive to redefine product presentation with its new smartwatch – but that doesn’t mean it skimped. The Moto 360 2nd Generation unboxing experience is a rich one, its cylindrical retail container featuring the Moto 360 front and center under a glossy plastic dome, braced with packing material that also snugly accommodates a wall plug and an included wireless charging pedestal. It's a very sharp, very smart box that should also catch some eyes as it sits on store shelves. But you didn't click all this way to talk about ...

    When one of Lenovo’s posters for a September 8 announcement leaked out online, very clearly showing a 2015 Moto 360 photo and disclosing the event’s venue as China, we automatically assumed the upgraded smartwatch could snub Berlin’s IFA last week, and instead go official today in the manufacturer’s homeland. That obviously wasn’t the case, but following a global introduction almost seven days ago, the second-gen Motorola Moto 360 just landed in China. Why is a regional launch so important? For one thing, this is the first Android Wear timepiece to debut in the world’s biggest ...

    Last week brought us no shortage of new hardware, as we got started on what promises to be a month full of some of the most anticipated launches of the year. And while that meant a nice assortment of compelling new smartwatches, few have been able to demand level of interest we've seen surrounding Motorola and its second-gen Moto 360. We brought you an early hands-on account of the wearable right when it was first announced, but in the time since we've had a chance to go back and give the new smartwatch a second look, this time comparing the updated wearable to the original 2014 model. ...

    The Moto 360 has been considered the poster child for the Android Wear smartwatch platform for a while now. Today, Motorola and Lenovo have announced the 2nd generation Moto 360, with a few design changes and improvements. The new Moto 360 is meant to appeal more to a wider variety of people including men, women, and fitness enthusiasts. It will be available in the $299 to $499 price range depending on your customizations and in addition to the regular online, Amazon, & BestBuy retail locations, Motorola will also be selling the Moto 360 at Nordstrom which will hopefully appeal to the ...

    The day that they said would never come is finally here - well, sort of: Android Wear now works on iPhones! I know, I never thought I'd see the day, but here we are. Naysayers and critics will be quick to point out that only one wearable is officially supported, the LG Watch Urbane (for now). Not long after the announcement, however, we learned that the Moto 360 works just fine connected to an iPhone - but only if it runs Android Wear 1.3 (which doesn't come on the watch out of the box). That fun little tidbit gives us the impression that any smartwatch powered by Android Wear and running ...

    The launch of the new Moto 360 appears to be just within reach, but from the myriad ways the smartwatch has managed to already leak, revealing not only two watch sizes but also a ruggedized 360 Sport option, in some ways it may as well have already gone official. From what we've already seen, the new Moto 360 doesn't appear to be a huge departure from last year's design, and a lot of the wearable's iconic styling makes a return. That means not only another circular display (this is a smartwatch called the “360,” after all), but also the same bottom-clipped “flat tire” look that so ...

    With roughly 72 hours left until the formal commencement of IFA 2015, and a slew of exciting mobile announcements scheduled for September 2 and 3, it became less and less likely in the past few days that Motorola would make an appearance at Berlin’s glitzy trade show to unveil the second-generation Moto 360. Instead, Lenovo, the American device manufacturer’s Chinese parent company, has just notified us of a September 8 Shanghai-set event. The press affair is labeled with a not-so-cryptic “It’s time” tag, and the invitation is made complete by a picture very clearly showing the ...

    As we close in on Motorola’s highly anticipated second-generation Moto 360 announcement, the exciting circular smartwatch’s riddles are unsurprisingly solved one by one. Just yesterday, the Moto 360 2015’s presumed final design was showcased in a pair of high-quality press renders. A few days before that, it became clear the Android Wear piece would come in two sizes, and last week, we also received solid pricing hints. Now, it’s time we got inside info on precise dimensions, as well as more details on the unforeseen Moto 360 Sport. First things first, it appears the 360S (Small) ...

    Not only does Motorola appear nearly ready to introduce its next generation of the Moto 360 smartwatch, but we've already had the opportunity to check this guy out multiple times, thanks to a bevy of useful leaks. Those have revealed to us at least two distinct versions of the new wearable, as the new Moto 360 looks like it's about to pick up a choice of size options, arriving in both a small and large edition. Is that the extent of the selections of models we'll have available? Back in late July, we came across some of the first reliable evidence for the new Moto 360 in the form of some ...

    Almost a full year after its commercial launch, and roughly 18 months following a formal announcement that coincided with Android Wear’s very debut, the Motorola Moto 360 has finally stopped selling. That’s not good news per se, especially given the watch’s recently discounted price, but it makes it clear once and for all a sequel is right around the corner. Of course, several tipsters already made sure we knew the 2015 Moto 360 edition was coming, and a slew of unauthorized pictures paraded the circular timepiece out in the wild. Now, we get to look at both rumored sizes of the ...

    Motorola looks practically guaranteed to introduce its second-gen Moto 360 smartwatch at IFA next week. Leaks have been running wild in recent weeks, with a growing body of evidence pointing towards the imminent arrival of this new model, finally available in both large and small sizes. And while Motorola itself has yet to confirm that a new Moto 360 is about to drop, that's the easy inference to draw as we see the company halt sales of the first-gen Moto 360 through its website. Head to the general Motorola website, and the “wearables” tab up top no longer directs you to the Moto 360 ...

    Update: That Huawei Watch gave us the jeebies all through the program. Well, glad that's all uploaded. One of the nice things about the current monoform world of slab smartphones is that there are very few moving parts to break. Until, that is, you decide to defy common sense and stick your brand new Galaxy Note 5's S Pen into its silo backwards. That's when life stops getting funny ... and starts getting real. Join us for a debate on whether this is an example of terminal user stupidity or inexcusable design flaw, and then stick around for all the news of the week in mobile technology, ...
