Verizon drops the price of the Motorola Moto 360 2nd generation and Sport by $50
Think about all of the naked wrists that were once covered by a watch. Since the smartphone became as essential to living as oxygen, many decided that knowing the time, which was all that the watch was once good for, could be discovered by glancing at your handset. But the rules changed again when smartwatches were unveiled. With a paired timepiece, you don't even need to pull out your phone to read emails and texts on the go.

And now Verizon is making it cheaper to cover your wrist with the Motorola Moto 360 2nd generation model, or the Motorola Moto 360 Sport. From now until the end of the month, both smartwatch models are $50 off from the nation's largest carrier. The 46mm Moto 360 2nd generation watch is now $349.99. The 42mm watch for ladies is priced at $299.99.

As we said, the $50 savings also applies to the Motorola Moto 360 Sport, which will cost you $249.99 with the sale. This model offer GPS tracking to assist in monitoring your workouts including the distance you've covered and the pace at which it was accomplished.

All three models are powered by Android Wear and will track your "caloric intake," heart rate and the number of steps you take. In addition, they all feature a large 300mAh battery that will provide you with as much as a day and a half of use between charges. With an IP67 rating, the timepieces can be worn even when you are doing the dishes. And the trio will pair with any Android phone running Android 4.3 or later, or those with an Apple iPhone 5 or later running iOS 8.2 and up.

The Motorola Moto 360 2nd generation and Sport models are Verizon's accessory of the month, which is why they are on sale. If you're tired of seeing your naked wrist, why not click on the sourcelink and take advantage of the discount.

Prices will drop soon as the new Gear & Gear fit devices come to market.

Unfortunately, gear and gear fit are only able to pair with Samsung phones. Fitbit blaze would be a better candidate.

Well, $75 you can get pebble classic when it's on sales. Still a decent smart watch with 7 days battery life.

Motorola Customer Service is the worst... If Verizon won't honor any type of warranty good luck if something goes wrong with your watch...

They really improved the battery life with the second generation. I can get 2 days on a single charge, where as I could only get 3/4 of a day on the first generation.

Still too expensive, the flat tire design is horrible, none of the clock faces look right with the bottom cut off.

I have the first generation and I would love to update since the battery life sucks on the first generation watch. However, $350 is too much still. I'd cop one if it was $200.
