First generation Motorola Moto 360 now costs only $99.99 (in the US)
In case you want to buy an Android Wear smartwatch, but you're not necessarily interested in a model released this year, you could consider getting the first generation Motorola Moto 360. That's because this particular device is now cheaper than ever - at least in the US.

If you're buying the original Moto 360 from Google Store, you'll be paying just $99.99 for it, and Google can ship it to you for free. It's not clear if this is a limited time offer - we assume that it isn't, since the first-gen Moto 360 is now over 1 year old, so the $99.99 price tag might very well be permanent.

Meanwhile, the second generation Moto 360 (released not long ago) is sold for prices starting at $299, being available in two sizes - with screens of 1.56 inches, and 1.37 inches - while the original Moto 360 only comes with a 1.56-inch screen.

Just like the new Moto 360, the older model is compatible with most Android handsets, and, if you're updating it to the latest version of Android Wear, it can even be paired with iPhones. So, who's willing to buy the 1-year old Moto 360?

Wish they'd have this price in different parts of the world too. I'd get one in an instant.

I used to own one and loved it but now I wouldn't even buy one for 50 Canadian.

It's still well worth a $100. It has a good display, Bluetooth, WiFi, heart rate monitor, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, wireless charging. It's even getting the latest marshmallow update.

I rather spend the $100 and get the Microsoft fitness band. Much better than the Moto 360.

Clearly that is your opinion. I rather have a smart watch, then just a fitness band. The MS band only has a 120 Mhz MCU with 2 mb of ram, and 64 mb of storage. The Moto 360 has a 1 ghz processor with 512 mb, 4 gb of storage, WiFi, and wireless charging. Not to mention looks far superior to the rubber band on Microsoft's product. The band is cheap and it falls apart, and it doesn't even have a protective glass for the display. The MS band should be sold for no more than $10.

Why would I need storage on a device I'm wearing on my wrist? Oh and forget about changing the bands because Motorola uses a bs design that makes it hard to use the standard 22mm bands on the 360. In addition to some software hiccups and a few issues with compatibility. Yeah I'll take the much better Fitness Band.

I bought it for $149. No regret as it introduce me to the world of Android Wear. I spend a lot of money of gadget each year this amount is small change not worth mentioning.
