While you may have seen reports via Motorola's Twitter account that the Moto 360 Gen. 1 would not be receiving Wear 2.0, we decided to follow up with Motorola's official PR this morning on this news and received direct confirmation: the Moto 360 Gen. 1 won't get Wear 2.0.
The Moto 360 was heavily hyped leading up to its launch nearly two years ago, and understandably so: a [semi-]circular display made it stand out from pretty much any smartwatch that had been released previously. While LG's G Watch R was, in my opinion, a better take on the circular watch, the Moto 360 still stood out with its small bezels and minimalistic, lugless style. Read More
It's not just Nexus devices that are getting updates right now. Android Wear devices are getting an update as well, but it's just a security tweak for most of them. Motorola's current watches are getting a more sizable update, though. Read More
Let's get real—the Moto 360 Sport has not been a successful device for Motorola. It took too long to launch, was too expensive, and didn't look or feel very nice. The original $300 price is in the rear view mirror, and now it's reached an all-time low of $161.32 on Amazon. At that price, I think it's a reasonable purchase. Read More
The original Moto 360 feels a bit long in the tooth these days, especially since Motorola switched to the more standard Snapdragon 400 system-on-a-chip for the 2015 revision of the watch. (I guess they finally ran out of those dusty IMAP processors.) But for Android fans who have yet to check out Android Wear, or who just want one of the better options from the first-generation lineup for a song, there's a nice eBay deal going on right now. Several variations of the watch are available for $89.99 with free shipping to the US.
The Nexus 9 was removed from the Google Store yesterday, which isn't really a surprise; it was old. The Moto 360 Sport, not so much. That hasn't stopped Google from ending sales of the wearable after just a few months. Womp womp. Read More
Ryan Whitwam called the Moto 360 Sport good on paper, but hard to recommend in practice. Maybe we can amend that to hard to recommend at full price.
Motorola usually wants $299.99 for the smartwatch, but right now the company is offering the athletic-oriented Android Wear device for $100 less. Read More
Motorola took its time releasing the Moto 360 Sport smart watch after announcing it, probably because the device turned out to be somewhat mediocre. At $300 it was too expensive, but the latest price drop on Amazon makes it much more palatable. The black 360 Sport is on sale for $236.17 right now with Prime shipping. Read More
Had your eye on one of those Motorola Android Wear watches? Now might be the time to strike with a $50 gift card when you buy a Moto 360 from Best Buy. This deal covers all versions of the Moto 360 (both sizes) and the more recently released Moto 360 Sport. Read More
The Moto 360 Sport is a lot like the standard second gen device, only with a silicone strap and a display with greater outdoor visibility. Some people, myself included, think that this means it should sell for less than the regular version of the watch which is outfitted with more premium materials.
Well, Motorolla may not agree with that idea, but Amazon is apparently on board with it because the price on the black model of the 360 Sport just dropped more than 50 bucks to $248.27. This is not an announced sale and may be Amazon's way of clearing a little extra inventory. Read More
Motorola launched the second-generation Moto 360 last fall and fixed many of the issues with the original watch, but at the same time it teased the Moto 360 Sport. It took months for it to come out, and even then there was little promotion surrounding it. I don't think you can deny that it's a less elegant device than the standard Moto 360, which comes with the same $299 starting price, but there are a few distinct, sporty features that might tempt you.
