Moto 360 Comes To The Play Store In Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, And The UK

Time flies in the tech world. The Moto 360 isn't the latest hotness anymore, but I still love the one strapped to my wrist. In my mind, it remains the most visually stunning smartwatch you can buy. And when I say you, I'm referring to folks in Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom—all places where the watch is now listed as available from the Play Store.

Google may have updated the support page a bit early, as the Moto 360 is listed as coming soon. But you can probably look for the watch to be ready for purchase any time now.

Moto 360 DODO Bands Now Ready For Purchase In Four Colors Priced At $59.99 Each

A couple months back Motorola announced that Moto 360 straps made in partnership with DODOcase, the makers of some rather impressive premium cases, were on the way. Now they're here. The accessory is available for purchase over at Motorola.com.

Like anything concerning the Moto 360, DODO leather bands don't come cheap. These wrist holders will set you back $59.99 a pop.

The DODO strap is available in four colors: blue, green, red, and tan. There are no black or gray bands here, probably because they would look too similar to the Moto 360's existing leather straps (which go for $29.99) to be necessary.

[Wear Compare] The Strengths And Weaknesses Of All The First-Generation Android Wear Devices

In just a few months, it will be the one-year anniversary of Android Wear's announcement (March 18th). Since the first two official Android-powered watches were released at I/O 2014, we've seen half a dozen total watches running Android Wear, each with its own pros and cons. These devices run the gamut from kind of ugly to truly gorgeous. A new wave of watches will be upon us in the coming year, but the current ones are still a great way to get into wearables. In fact, I bet there will be some solid discounts on these devices in the not too distant future.

Moto 360 Review Addendum: Three Months Later

The Moto 360 was supposed to be the one. The watch that would rule all other watches with their pitiful square screens and plastic housings. I was excited for the Moto 360, but I couldn't help thinking the hype was out of control. We were expecting too much, and indeed, when I reviewed the Moto 360, the verdict was okay, but not amazing. At the time it was the best Android Wear watch, but that was due largely to the aesthetics. Now after three months and a handful of other watches, I have some more to say.

[Faulex] As Smartwatches Grow, So Too Does A Market For IP-Infringing Watch Faces - And Legal Action

IP infringement and the internet have a long and storied history. Never has it been so easy to share so much so quickly so anonymously - something any college student with a campus broadband connection generally discovered as an almost dorm room rite of passage from the late 90s onward. Music, films, television, games, and other software have long been the most-pirated content categories, in turn provoking varying degrees of legal response from the industries who own and distribute such content.

But long before pirating was yet a twinkle in Usenet's eye, counterfeiting was already making design and trademark infringement an economic powerhouse.

Motorola Connect Update Adds Custom Watch Faces, Moto Body, And Support For A New 'Keylink' Accessory

Motorola started selling a few new color and band versions of the Moto 360 smartwatch this week, with more to come. At the same time a company representative promised new watch faces for existing users via a forthcoming update to the Motorola Connect app. That update seems to be here: version 2.02.21. In addition to faces added from the Motorola design competition back in June, the new app allows you to pick and choose colors and design elements for the default Motorola faces.

The customized option is surprisingly deep: everything from the hands to the hour indicators can be customized, and you can enable or disable other features like the day and date.

Motorola Releases New Moto 360 Designs With Metal Bands For $299.99, New Health Apps And Watch Faces Coming Soon

Last week Amazon briefly showed off a few new options for the Moto 360, including the metal bands that the company has been teasing ever since the original announcement. Those disappeared from Amazon almost instantly, but now Motorola seems ready to sell at least some of them. After a quick announcement on the company blog, some of the new options are being sold now.

At the $249.99, you can still get the stainless steel or black watches with 22mm bands in "stone" or black, respectively. The new metal options cost $299 for 23mm black or stainless bands matched to the watch, and they're both shipping now.

AT&T Will Sell You A Moto 360 For $199.99 ($50 Off) With Purchase Of A 2nd Generation Moto X Starting November 7th

AT&T will start selling the Moto 360 on November 7th, and it's willing to take $50 off the price if you pick up this year's Moto X at the same time. The company wants you to view this offer as a deal, and like everything having to do with major carriers in the US, that depends.

Moto360 Motox

If you have no desire to own the Moto X, then this is a pretty deep hole to jump into just to save $50 on a smartwatch. If you're not a customer with AT&T, switching over to the carrier may end up costing much more than $50 depending on who you're switching from, considering that its cellular service is among the priciest in the country.

AT&T Spills The Beans On Pricing For The LG G Watch R: $299, Available In Stores On November 7th

The LG G Watch R seems to be the best Android Wear device yet, at least in the opinion of our own David Ruddock. But that doesn't mean much if you can't actually buy one. LG has been silent on pricing thus far, but it looks like AT&T just spilled the beans by announcing its plans to carry the G Watch R in its retail stores. You can pick one up this Friday, November 7th... for $299. An AT&T representative confirmed the $299 price for the G Watch in a promotional message to Android Police:

  • Pricing: $299
  • Available online and in AT&T stores on 11/7
  • Connects to any smartphone running Android OS 4.3 or higher via Bluetooth
  • 1.3 inch circular P-OLED display

It's not exactly surprising that the G Watch R (affectionately known as the GWAR) is so expensive - that circular P-OLED screen has to count for a lot, and LG is probably banking on the fact that its latest Android-powered watch actually looks like a watch.
