Holiday season may have ended, but that doesn’t mean companies are ready to stop discounting products. We’re heading in to 2016, and have just seen an influx of new products hit the market in the last few months. That means older versions of gadgets are now available cheaper.
One such device is the original Moto 360. Head on over to Woot and you can snag the champagne gold version of Motorola’s first Android Wear watch for just $149 with either the 18mm or 23mm strap. That’s down 35% from the original list price of $229.
As a reminder, here’s a rundown of the specs:
- 1.56-inch, round 320 x 290 LCD display (205ppi)
- 18mm or 23mm brand
- 320mAh battery
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE
- Heart rate sensor built in
- TI OMAP 3 processor
- IP67 water resistance
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3
- Qi-standard wireless charging (cradle include)
- Runs Android Wear, compatible with Android smartphones from 4.3 upwards
The Moto 360 was arguably the first attractive, fashion-forward smartwatch running Android Wear. The champagne metal version emphasized that focus on design further. By the time the second generation was released towards the end of last year, Motorola had competition from the likes of Huawei, LG and Apple. Coming in to 2016, competition is only going to get fiercer as traditional watch-makers get involved in the wearable tech market. Both Fossil and TAG Heuer have launched Android Wear watches, and we expect other well-known fashion brands will do the same this year.
