Motorola Moto 360 discounted in the Google Store and at Best Buy
If you are looking to buy the Motorola Moto 360, the Google Store has the Android Wear powered smartwatch discounted to $165. That is a 34% discount from the $249 price that the phone originally was priced at. And Google will also toss in free shipping. On the other hand, if you are buying a new Android phone, there is even a sweeter deal for the timepiece.

Head to Best Buy, buy a new Android handset, and the big box retailer will take $100 off the price of the Moto 360. That reduces it down to $79.99 which is a whopping 68% off the original price. This deal ends on April 18th so don't let it expire without picking up the Moto 360 at that amazingly low price.

So to recap, there are two deals for the Motorola Moto 360 on the table. The Google Store will sell it to you for $165 with free shipping, and Best Buy will sell the watch to you for $79.99 with the purchase of a new Android phone. The choice is yours.

"from the $249 price that the phone originally was priced at" Better improve the proof-reading

this clearly shows it's not selling enough , this much reduction in price is just bad business. not good for anyone , the devs will lose confidence, and the people who paid big bucks for it will hate motorola. personally I really like the design of the 360 a lot , but it think it's too basic in some areas like apps and the Ui needs far too many swipes to navigate, they need something like the digital crown or ironically a App draw.

Part of the reason for the price drop may be that they're at the 7 month mark on a 1 year (or less) lifecycle, so it's probably time to get rid of existing stock in prep for the new model. Regardless, until wearables get past being an extension of a smartphone, their numbers are always going to be a fraction of what smartphone numbers are. As for your love for this digital crown on the Apple watch, sorry but I don't share it. It's basically the same thing on a different device as the physical click wheel and touch wheel from the older iPod models. To me that's a step back. And too many swipes to navigate the UI? How do you navigate on your smartphone? I was just thinking the other day, that's what my phone needs, more buttons and dials. I mean how can they expect us to swipe and press this screen to get anything done? I mean whoever came up with this idea of a touchscreen smartphone should've thought this through more.

I said something like that , a easier way to navigate would be nice , a few buttons to navigate makes it much easier on a 2" screen swiping becomes a pain in the ass, this is why the Apple watch will sell cause it's easier to use, plus the music app needs a quick way to navigate your library. this is the truth unfortunately Apple watch is easier to use hence why it will sell. if that doesn't change Android wear will remain a enthusiast product for google fans.

So swiping through your music library is a pain in the ass, but sponning a small crown over and over is better? OK then. If that's what you want more power to ya, but I seriously doubt that the digital crown is the reason people have gone with the Apple watch over the competition. Mainly because, what are Apple user's options? The Apple watch, Pebble, and Android Wear if you jailbreak, which most don't do. And if they've already chosen the iPhone as their phone, doesn't it seem plausible that they'd want an Apple watch for their Apple phone?

The moto 360 has been removed from the Australian google store and has been replaced by the Asus ZenWatch.

There is a second gen coming. BTW the Asus ZenWatch has been in the US play store since last year.

Think about all the suckers who overpaid for the 360. This is why you don't buy an android-based devices right after release - their depreciation is just ridiculous.

Even if they over paid as you put it with the original price. That means they paid $85 more then the original $249 price ($165 sale). But they are getting a stainless steel Moto 360 with a leather band. Think about the suckers who purchased the Aluminum Apple Sport watch with a rubberized band for $349-$399. With Android Wear looming over the horizon for iOS. Who is paying too much again?

Still the Moto 360 buyer? Apple isn't selling you 2009 junk and lying about the specs. The Apple Watch will sell in the millions not only because it is Apple, but because it is a good product. The Moto 360 sold in the thousands because "round."

What did they lie about? When it was launched the processor was listed in the specs. Anything before that was conjecture, as it is with almost any other device pre launch. It may be an older processor, but really what does it need for the tasks it needs to accomplish? And if it's so horrible, how come after a couple of updates does it get around the same battery life as other AW devices with newer processors? I've used other AW devices and the performance difference is minimal, in the millisecond range. I can live with that for a better looking device.

So apparently the same could be said for all the suckers who bought an iPhone at launch and then a year later it's price dropped. That happens with every device, it sells for higher at launch, and then the price drops when it's being replaced. Actually, that happens for everything out there, cars, computers, TVs, etc.

You just had to slide in a dig at the iPhone. Not Apple's fault Moto 360 tanked. Blame it on poor distribution and a ridiculous price point.

So what's the excuse for the Apple watch then? They announce it 7 months ago, they do the preorders, and people shouldn't expect their watches for at least a month after that. Seriously, you have the nerve to call out someone else for poor distribution? What a joke.

And price point? Let's look at that. Moto 360: stainless steel case and leather band $250 stainless steel case and steel band $300 leather band sold separately $30 steel band sold separately $80 And let's not overlook that most any aftermarket bands will work with the Moto360, like the Pebble Steel band for instance which runs for $30. Apple watch: aluminum case and rubber band $350-400 stainless steel case and rubber band $550-600 stainless steel case and leather band $650-750 stainless steel case and steel band $950-1100 rubber band sold separately $50 leather band sold separately $150 steel band sold separately $450 But Motorola's price point is ridiculous?

Apple products always fetch a premium price especially when they're first released. Apple products also holds more value over time than Android. There's no comparison. If Samsung had something similar and I don't mean that Gear crap you would have a point. You're wrong about the bands. Some people have reported cracking from using a pebble band. The G Watch R can use standard bands something lacking on the 360.

You claimed Motorola had a ridiculous price point. I was pointing out using the same materials, Apple's price point is much higher than Motorola's and they essentially do the same thing. A Motorola 360 has a stainless steel case and with a factory steel band will run you $300, where an Apple watch with a steel case and the lowest price steel band will run $950. That's over three times the cost. Actually, no I'm not. Any band of the correct size will attach to the casing. If you were to squeeze the band with something in side the band, you could crack it. But if you're at all careful with it, it will work just fine, as I've had one for almost 6 months now without a problem. The G Watch R doesn't require you to be as careful with it, but the Moto360 will still accept most any 22mm bands.

That should've been "squeeze the band without something inside it.

At least you don't have to jump through a bunch of hoops to get the apple watch unlike when the 360 first came out.

Really? So what do you call making an appointment just to try the Apple watch on to see how it feels? Or ordering something that was announced 7 months ago and then having to wait and additional month or two to actually receive it? In all this time between the announcement and preorder, they couldn't have built up any stock so they could actually have devices ready when people order them?

21. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Yup. Android stuff lose value more than a new car driven off the lot.

Bought 2 Metal ($120 ea) and 2 Leather ($80 ea) Moto 360s from Best Buy with $20 TMobile ZTE Zingers (Walmart price matched). Did the online Trade-in Zingers to Verizon on Sunday for $100 gift card each. It's like getting the Leather for free and Metal for $40 each plus tax.
