Motorola released its smartwatch, the Moto 360, on September 5 in two colors: black on black and silver with a special launch edition, grey suede. Today, a new option has arrived with little mention from the Chicago-based company. If you cruise through the Best Buy link below, you will see that “Stone Leather” is now a choice. In even better news, this model is in stock for purchase.
Having trouble trying to figure out how those colors could be different? Take a look at the images below. We put the “Stone” option on the left, “Gray” on the right. It appears to be a slightly lighter color of grey.
“Stone” is available for $249.99, just like the black and silver models. (more…)
Go! Go! Go!

Thanks to Best Buy going live with a Moto 360 listing a couple of weeks early, we may already know the most important piece of info for Motorola’s smartwatch – the price. Listed at $249.99, I would venture to guess that most of you are ready to throw down cash immediately. Or are you?
There was some worry that a $300+ price tag would accompany the watch, mostly due to the fact that it has been built with high-end materials, yet still packs in all sorts of features, like water resistance. If you compare the 360 to the Samsung Gear Live or LG G Watch, it certainly seems like Motorola could have charged a premium for it, especially with those currently available at $199 and $229, respectively.
$250, though, how does that sound? Are you buying if the Moto 360 drops in at that price?
We are expecting to get official Moto 360 launch details when Motorola hosts press at a September 4 event in Chicago, but Best Buy may have gone ahead and let us in on all sorts of details early. According to a listing on Best Buy’s site for the Moto 360, we could end up paying $249.
The device is also listed as having a 1.5-inch backlit LCD touch screen, with a 320×290 resolution, 205ppi, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Matching up to what we learned from a leak a week ago, we are also seeing mentions of a heart rate monitor, water resistance (up to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes), and an ambient light sensor. On a specs tab, the listing suggests that there is 512MB of RAM, Wireless N connectivity, and a Texas Instruments processor inside. (more…)
