The Moto 360 Sport, gets a lot less attention than its more elegant "sibling," the original Moto 360, but that has a lot to do with the genuine leather wristband of the original, as opposed to the rubber wristband and athletic reputation of the 360 Sport. It seems odd that Motorola would've released two different devices with "Moto 360" in the name of both; instead, it seems as though Motorola would've had one 360 smartwatch with different wristbands and customizable software.
And yet, the Moto 360 Sport exists for a steep $299. Well, that is, until today.
Best Buy and Amazon have both dropped the price of the 360 Sport down from $299 to $199 for the Orange Moto 360 Sport and the White 360 Sport. The black version is still available, but will cost you $229.99 if you intend to pick up a more formal color to match your weekly wear. The Orange 360 Sport, will definitely help you stand out in the crowd. I once wore an orange Galaxy Gear back in 2013, and got noticed by my waiter at the restaurant I frequented. So, orange is a color that definitely turns heads (whether or not that color suits you is another matter, entirely).
$199.99 may prove to be the magic price for you, but with major price drops like this, it won't be long before Motorola announces a new 360 Sport to the market. After all, Google I/O 2016 is set to arrive next month, and Google usually announces updates to Android Wear around that time. Motorola unveiled its first Moto 360 smartwatch in September of 2014, so it's likely we could see a new Moto 360 and 360 Sport arrive either this summer or at summer's end.
To find your 360 Sport at Amazon, head here. If you prefer Best Buy, head here. Remember, too, that you can still purchase the sports smartwatch at Verizon and the Google Store, though you foot the entire $299 price tag at your own risk.
