Just as it did with its second-gen Moto G last month, Motorola has taken to its online store to sell its Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch. The wearable went on sale at 12pm GMT today and is available in limited stock.
Customers who registered their interest in the device received an email from the manufacturer stating its limited availability. Therefore, if you’re interested in the rather attractive round smartwatch from Motorola, then you better act fast!
Taking a page out of Xiaomi’s book, Motorola is holding what seems to be a flash sale of the device in order to drum up interest for the smartwatch, which has thus far received mixed reviews. Currently, you grab the Moto 360 in a light metal case or dark metal case with matching leather bands for £199.
The Moto 360 comes with a circular display, 4GB worth of storage and 512MB RAM. The waterproof smartwatch has an optical heart rate monitor and pedometer. Its watch face is made of Corning Gorilla Glass and measures in at 1.56 inches with a resolution of 320 x 290 pixels and 205 ppi. It also has a 320 mAh battery, which Motorola claims can last a full day on mixed use. Additionally, for that price, you also get a wireless charging dock for the wearable.
As mentioned above, the device runs on Google Android Wear, which will display contextually-aware notifications such as the weather, sports results and nearby points of interest. Google has also unveiled a separate Play Store section populated with compatible Android Wear apps that work on the device.
If that sounds good, then you can purchase the Moto 360 via the Motorola website.
