Moto 360 pricing hits new low, with Google offering 34 percent off
Is Motorola burning thought old Moto 360 stock in preparation for a new model? Late last week we drew your attention to a rare Moto 360 price cut, with a couple big retailers offering some sizable discounts on the Android Wear smartwatch. But for as attractive as that $180 price was, it turns out that an even better deal was just days away. Now Google itself is following in Amazon and Best Buy’s wake as it cuts the Moto 360’s sticker price even further, bringing the wearable down to a scant $165.
Compared to the $250 base price the watch went for just a week ago, that’s a tremendous deal, knocking more than one-third off the smartwatch’s total cost. Google will even ship that deeply discounted Moto 360 for free, helping to make the offer even more enticig.
Whether this is do draw focus away from the Apple Watch or to prepare for an incoming second-gen Moto 360, we can’t really say, but with prices like these, we really can’t dwell too much on the “why” of it all – that it’s happening in the first place is enough.
If last week’s deals didn’t push you over the edge, does this new offer have what it takes to convince you to pick one up?
