The only watch that seems to have customer demand enough to sell out is back in stock. The Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch — which sold out quickly at the beginning of September — is now available for people to buy and wonder if it’s worth it.
Sure, the jury is still out as to whether smartwatches can become practical and ubiquitous gadgets, but that won’t stop the big companies from investing in their production. Apple is coming out with one, Samsung has one, and people seem to be wary on whether they should get one. What makes the Motorola’s Moto 360 different is that it doesn’t look like a smartwatch. It looks like a fancy watch which is probably why they’re selling out as fast as they are.
As they come back, the two models of Motorola’s Moto 360 (dark metal case with a black leather band, and light metal case with a stone leather band) will sell for $249.99 with battery improvements. The price is the same since its release and in the buy zone for tech fans who are sold on the Moto 360 smartwatch and Android Wear.
We’ll see if the Motorola’s Moto 360 will sell out again as quickly as it did before, or maybe it was all just a case of limited early supply and now Motorola has enough to go around. Everyone in the business will be watching to see if the market demand is there to keep pumping money into smartwatches that may actually become a mainstay in the market.
