The Galaxy S6s and HTC One M9 are arriving within a month, so it’s going to be tough to justify buying any other phone for the time being. Motorola is going to try to convince you that the Moto X “Pure Edition” is still worth it (and maybe it is for all we know), though, with today’s deal that will land you a new Moto X “Pure Edition” and a pair of TRACKS AIR Sol Republic Bluetooth on-ear headphones for just $449.94.
If you break it down, Motorola is basically giving you a Moto X “Pure Edition” with 16GB of storage, customized with MotoMaker, for $450. That’s a $50 discount over the normal full price. They are then tossing in $200 Bluetooth on-ear headphones for free.
Tough choice or are we all just waiting at this point?

Groupon is currently hosting a $30-off deal on what many believe is the best Android Wear watch you can buy, the LG G Watch R. There is no denying its premium build, outstanding performance, and solid battery life, that’s for sure. With an all-metal body, leather strap, and full-circle display, this is one of the few Android Wear watches we would recommend outside of the Moto 360, although, that may change shortly when LG’s Watch Urbane and the Huawei Watch arrive.
Still, at $269 ($30 off), this is a deal worth considering. The G Watch R normally retails for $299.

Just a quick reminder that the Neutron S, a tablet and phone mount for almost any surface, is still available in the DL Deals shop for just $25.
With the Neutron S, you get a product that is machined from solid aerospace aluminum and contains a shielded permanent neodymium magnet “which never loses its hold.” From tablets to phones to your keys, you can really mount almost anything, as long as it is under 1lb. You could use it in your car to host your phone for navigation or on a wall to let you go hands-free in the kitchen.
The Neutron S “uses magnetic architecture to generate herculean grip while taking up minimal space,” but also has NFC built-in so that you can configure it to accomplish tasks as you mount a device (think turning on Bluetooth as you mount it in your car to connect to your stereo). The Neutron S attaches to objects using 3M VHB tape that is included with purchase.
