Poll: Will you pay $249 for the Moto 360

So, a new Best Buy listing has apparently outed the specs and pricing of the Motorola Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch. There were some surprises in the listing, like the Texas Instruments processor and Wireless N connectivity, but the biggest news of all is in the listed price tag of $249...

I wouldn't buy it regardless of price. Smartwatches are just another way for clever companies to make money from stupid consumers.

I dun believe in smart watches. The future is not about smart watches. In the future, when there are flexible e-newspapers, magazines, touchscreen windows displays on tables and cabinets and all around wherever you walk, who need a smart watch right?;)

I might pay $250, but only with a metal band. That leather band doesn't look good to me.

I really don't see the market for these "wearables". So few people buy and wear watches the days, and the ones that do buy real timepieces, not some tech device. The rest will have a hard time justifying spending $200-300 for a thingy that saves them the excruciating trouble of pulling their phones out of their pockets to see a FB notification or whatheverthef*ck these smart watches are supposed to do. Those that buy them will probably use them for a week or so, get sick of having to charge yet another device, realize that they're nearly useless, and regret spending the money on one. I expect that the only smartwatch that might be a success is the iWatch, if only because iDiots will buy them and flaunt them like the hipster morons they are.

I wouldn't pay more than $60 for it.

If LG can charge $230 for the G watch, Motorola can most definitely charge 20 bucks more for a far superior device. If I had the money I'd buy.

Smartwatch is a natural companion, when owning giant phone, that is not easily taken out from a pocket. As I avoid buying large phones, I don't need a smartwatch.

Why would you want a camera on your watch?
