Motorola has already said that the first-gen. Moto 360 won't receive the Android Wear 2.0 update that's soon to arrive later this year, so first-gen. owners will have to start looking for deals on second-gen. devices. Fortunately, DailySteals has one for you: the site is selling the 2nd-gen. Moto 360 for 50% off, bringing the price of the smartwatch down from $299.99 to $149.99. We think this is an excellent deal for those who want something with a price tag of the second-gen. ASUS ZenWatch with the design language of the Moto 360.
The offer is valid for both men's and women's watches and sizes, though you can only take advantage of the offer if you need 42mm and 46mm wristband sizes and black leather and black metal designs. You also have the option of adding either a 1-year or 2-year replacement plan if you'd like. Also, Android Wear watches have iOS compatibility, so you can pair the Moto 360 with an iPhone and still get a sufficient number of notifications (not everything works as it will on an Apple Watch, though, so proceed at your own risk). Of course, Fossil has been marketing its Q Founder as exceptional in this regard, but in a closer examination, the Q Founder doesn't do any more with iOS than does the Moto 360.
Where the Moto 360 has the edge over all other Android Wear watches is that it provides wireless charging capabilities whereas the others do not. This means that you can place your smartwatch on the charging pad, then take it off whenever you'd like to wear it and use it on the go. The Moto 360 does have a black bar called a flat tire at the bottom of the display though, and there are others such as Samsung's Gear S2 and the LG Watch Urbane (and Urbane LTE) that do not have the black bar. Android Wear fans won't care much about the black bar, but if you're someone with an eye for design and detail, it may not be something you can live with. At $150, though, there's not too much fault to find with any device.
