Motorola says the Moto 360 is sold out, expects limited availability for a while
posted by Florin T. / Sep 05, 2014, 4:03 PM
Motorola started selling its Moto 360 earlier today, and it looks like the smartwatch is already a hot seller. That, or Motorola didn’t have too many units in stock to begin with. In any case, the company informed the world that the Moto 360 is now sold out at Motorola.com, and “availability may be limited for a while.” The device is also out of stock at Google Play Store. As you may know, the new smartwatch was launched via Best Buy, too, though right now you can’t order it online - you need to check brick and mortar stores to see if there’s any stock left.
Priced at $249, the Moto 360 is more expensive than the other Android Wear smartwatches currently on the market, namely the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch. However, it’s the first to feature an (almost) round display, and it’s quite good-looking - so it’s understandable why some customers may prefer it to the other options. It’s good for Motorola that it finally released the 360, because LG is getting ready to launch an Android Wear smartwatch with a round display, too: the G Watch R.
Have you bought a Moto 360 yet? Or do you intend to get one? Let us know in the comments!

Either it's poor supply and demand planning or Google and Motorola are really clueless. There's no reason why it should be severely limited right now. No excuses really considering Google is a billion dollar company.

You can't do that with Myx. He'll tell you that this article isn't about Apple so it's not relevant. Apparently he can't focus on more that one thing at a time. If you want to distract him, just jingle some shiny keys in front of him and he'll lose his train of thought.

Mxy has a point. I tried to buy one and it was sold out in all three retailer in ten minutes. Considering this is the smart watch that most of us were waiting for and the delay, there's no reason why they should sell out so quickly. Piss poor planning in my opinion especially since they could have easily added a pre-order option a month ago.

Seeing as how smartwatches haven't exactly been doing as well as planned this wouldn't be Google or Motos fault for releasing in a limited number first. Apple for example has all the stats from 7 years of selling the iPhone and still screw it up almost every year.

They did mention that they were going to have trouble making so many round screens at once. It's so new that they will not be able to keep up with demand for a while. It would probably be dumb of them to buy more machines, hire more workers, open up more factories, etc. The hype would die down and all of their investments would go to waste. So, it's probably the most cost effective way to release their product while keeping the supply chain reasonably limited. They have people that are good with numbers.

I was really looking forward to the moto 360, I'm disappointed with the battery, I would rather have a watch which lasts longer then a day at least. I'm going to wait until the next wave of smartwatches.
