April 1 might be a day of horseplay, ridiculousness and embarrassment for many tech companies, but if you can’t appreciate the faux product announcements and silly software introductions flooding the market over the next few hours, maybe you’ll like what Motorola has in store.
Out of nowhere, Lenovo’s subsidiary has kicked off a pair of amazing lightning deals on its official US website, both of which will expire at 10:59 am CT later today.
The first lets you score the original Moto 360 smartwatch, launched in 2014, completely free of charge. No joke, no catches, no strings attached. Well, except for one – you need to purchase a 64GB Moto X Pure Edition or Droid Turbo 2 phone, and cough up its full retail price. $500 or $720 respectively, that is, with no contractual obligations.
The OG Android Wear timepiece normally costs $200, though you can find it these days at third-party retailers like Amazon going for as little as $150. Still, that’s 150 bucks you’ll save here, and at least the X Pure Edition is a pretty decent bargain itself.
Meanwhile, the 5.7-incher’s 5.2-inch predecessor, also released roughly a year and a half back, drops down from $350 to $230 with 32GB internal storage, and from $400 to $260 in a 64 gig configuration. Willing to settle for a 16GB ROM if it comes with an even lower price tag? No can do, as the entry-level Moto X (2nd gen) variant went out of stock shortly after shaving 100 bucks off its $300 MSRP.
Time is of the essence, boys and girls, and each minute counts, bringing you closer to the end of the promos or further inventory depletion.
