If you must have your Android Wear fix, prefer circular smartwatches, and aren't particularly feeling the LG G Watch R, then the Moto 360 really is your only option. That's not to say it's bad one. I've happily strapped one to my wrist for months now.
The Moto 360 remains at its original price point, so the model with a leather strap goes for $249.99, and the metal strap bumps that up to $299.99. Fortunately, Best Buy is currently selling the full set of options for $30 - $50 off. You can get the regular model for $219.99, while the more expensive variant has been temporarily reduced to $249.99. The priciest option, champagne, has gone from $329.99 to $279.99.
I wear my Moto 360 with ambient mode off, brightness turned all the way down (which is still bright enough for me to see most of the time), and tilt to wake screen disabled (a feature I found annoying). With this arrangement, I go to bed each night with roughly 60% battery life remaining, and I've once managed to get through most of a second day without the watch dying (I've only forgotten to charge it twice). Even if your settings aren't as strict as mine, as long as you plan on charging up each night and don't need the display on all the time, I wouldn't worry about the watch lasting until bedtime.
