The Moto 360 smart-watch to debut in July for $340 (249 EUR)?
According to the French publication Journal du Geek (awesome name!), the coveted Moto 360 smart-watch will cost $341 (249 EUR) with a launch planned sometime in early July. It is not known where the exquisite smart-watch will be selling first, which regions the price reflects, and which countries the Moto 360 will reach.

If the probable $249 US price tag looks steep, you'll be able to opt for LG's Android Wear-based G Watch, which is far from sleek and fashionable, but it will be fairly cheaper. The G Watch will retail for $272 (199 EUR) in France, which gives a good all-around impression of its US price point ($199). Then again, we suggest you keep the salt shaker nearby, as the publication is quite light on details.

Motorola has been teasing the watch's design and functionality for a while, but has kept the finer details around it mostly for itself. Unfortunately, rumors say that the Moto 360 will face a limited launch due to yield problems. Manufacturing an analog watch is hard as it is, but fitting complicated electronics in something that has to look so small and sharp must be quite the trial.
