Motorola Moto 360 on 1-day sale now for half its original price: you can get it for $130

Motorola Moto 360 on 1-day sale now for half its original price: you can get it for $130
Now, that sounds like the right price for a smartwatch: the well-designed Motorola Moto 360, the first Android Wear timepiece with a round screen, is now on sale for just $130 at Woot.com, and if you're in store for a smartwatch this is the best deal we've seen on one so far. 

Note that this is a factory reconditioned/refurbished item, and not a brand new one (but it should still look and function like new).

The Moto 360 was off to a shaky start with many reporting that is slower than expected and featuring underwhelming battery life, but Motorola has pushed out a few updates to the gadget that improve performance significantly and battery life is reportedly in two-day territory now. The timepiece is still rather large and will look best on big-handed fellows (it definitely seems a bit oversized for women, but that's a look some might be after).

For more details about the Motorola Moto 360, you can check out our full-on Moto 360 review here. And while you make up your mind, we leave you with this ridiculous-yet-mildly-entertaining Moto 360 song that someone with more free time to spare than us has jokingly written:


All watches are nice, but Motorola makes the best
I keep one on my wrist and two or three taped to my chest
And one in the cupboard and fourteen in the den
Where I stuff them into human clothes and pretend they're my friend

Sure, you can tell time on them but more than just that
You can check the weather, traffic, and latest fashions for cats
Use the voice control function again and again
To talk to your watch and pretend you have a friend

CHORUS
Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch
Better than a stupid non-smart watch
When everyone has abandoned you and you're stuck at home
Your smart watch will be there with you when you're alone

[bassoon solo]
[timpani solo]
CHORUS
CHORUS
CHORUS (key change)
CHORUS CHORUS CHORUS
[explosions]

[sounds of crying]
[whalesong]
[jackhammers]
CHORUS
[leaked FBI tapes]
CHORUS

I don't mind the size, but at this point, might as well wait for the 2nd gen

Short battery life? Mine last 2 days on a single charge. But I agree it's a bit on the large size.

Your an idiot. First of all the for $130 its a steal of a deal. Considering that it comes standard with a stainless steel case and a great leather band. It has a heart rate monitor 4gb of storage, with 512 mb of ram, a 1 GHz CPU and its definitely not under powered. I know since I have one. Also it comes with a wireless charging cradle. So even if you throw away the Moto 360 itself because you don't like it. The charger and the cradle cost $39 to buy separately. The Horween leather band is at least $50 to buy separately. So right there alone is $90 to buy those items. So for an extra $40, you are getting a smart watch that you can use for exercising, pay for Starbucks coffees with, install and listen to hundreds of songs from the watch. Play some games like doom and others. Also 5.1.1 update is going to hit soon for all Android Wear devices. The LG G Watch R and Moto 360 have WiFi as well. So when the update arrives it will enable that and more features as well.

say what you want but i'm no idiot and specs don't lie the moto 360 is under powered (multiple people and tech sites say it's laggy) compared to other smartwatches released the same year. I never once said it was a bad smartwatch so why you attacking me like i did. most tech sites give the 360 high marks and the design is beautiful but it's just a little to big for my liking.

Says the guy who only has Apple. Didn't you already buy you Apple Watch stainless steel for $600 with a rubberized band. You only are here to put down Android any chance you get.

how can a device with a touchscreen under 2 inches be "too big?"

Have you seen that ugly watch on a person wrist? Look at the bottom of a Coke can, there is your 360. That thing is big and hideous, I would not pay $70 for it.

I'm wearing one right now and having a coke. You obviously have proportions WAY off. It is exactly the same size as my old Fossil watches. People make a big deal about the dumbest crap. If you like it buy one. If you don't, then don't make stupid excuses for validating you not buying it. Same goes for many people who have never worn or seen one making stupid accusations.

It's laggy as hell. I feel sorry for people who wasted 300bucks on this device when you can get it now for 130, so the used ones will be worth about 80-100bucks.

I'm so mad I waited and didn't buy it during that sale.. I cannot find any deals even close to 130$. I played around with it at best buy and I like it and really want one now

PA probably didn't notice it nor mentioned it in the article and misleading the readers.

They did, but they should highlight it or something, not all people will go through the whole article.

The Moto 360 really isn't that good of a smartwatch. The G Watch R is much better.

This sound like a stock clearance, before the 360 v2 is announced at Google I/O????

I've had the Sony smartwatch 3 since it released, I bought a 360 off Craigs the other day for $115 and thought, people paid over $200 for this thing? The battery only last 3/4 of the day and it lags like crazy... My sw3 is very smooth and never lags plus the screen looks way better, and last 2 day's with moderate use... I wanted a round smart watch but the 360 is a poor example of that.
