Around 40% of you now own some sort of a smartwatch, according to a recent poll of ours. That means that 40% of you have an additional display outside of the one on your smartphone or tablet that can be customized! Yessir, it’s time to do a “Show off your watch faces” day, just like we do with home screens.
Since this is a new addition to our ongoing “show off” series, it will work slightly different. Because we want to see more than just your screen, this time we will ask that you take a picture of your smartwatch and then submit it through the comments. That way, we can see your watch face, watch, band of choice, and how it all plays together.
So down below, be sure to upload the picture of your watch, but then also tell us what the watchface, watch, and band are.
That title, though. Misleading? Technically, no. Should more Android Wear devices ship in 2015 than in 2014, then there would be a new record, right? So as I said, technically, the first year of sales is the current record, hence the “record number” mention in the title. Technically. Whatever. (more…)
Yesterday, Amazon announced a new giveaway tool that could be used by pretty much anyone to give things away. It’s called Amazon Giveaway. Of course it is. Since we tend to do lots of giveaways, but also love buying stuff we don’t need from Amazon because it ships fast, we thought we should give it a spin and see if this could be our next giveaway tool. As you all know, we typically use Rafflecopter in giveaways. However, that doesn’t mean we aren’t always open to new options. So here we are! (more…)
For who knows how long, anyone interested in the Moto 360 can pick one up from Best Buy, while also saving a bit of cash on it. Best Buy currently has a sale on all variants of the smartwatch, with the metal band versions for $50 off and the leather band versions for $30 off full retail. (more…)
So many deals.
If you missed out on Motorola’s $140 and $50 off coupon code promo from Monday, that’s OK, because they are still offering $100 off purchases of $499 or more from now through February 14. So should you happen to be in the market for a new Moto X (2nd gen) or a couple of Moto 360s, or a whole bunch of Moto Hints, you could save $100.
The same exclusions from the promo code deal apply – Nexus 6 isn’t included.
Motorola’s latest coupon code bonanza kicked off moments ago, which means you have a chance to save $140 on your next $499+ purchase or $50 on your next $249+ purchase through their online shop.
The deal works like all of their other deals in that you sign-up to receive a coupon code that will give you the discount. Once you receive that coupon code, you have a set amount of time to use it (up to February 14) or pass it along to a friend. Devices like the Moto X (2nd gen) and Moto 360 are a part of the promo.

Motorola officially made its return to China this morning in a keynote that was filled with dancing, fist pumping, and excitement. The event kicked off the launch of their whole product line-up in an area of the world that Motorola hasn’t been for some time. If it means anything to you, the Chicago-based smartphone maker pointed out that they managed to jump into China just three months after Lenovo closed their acquisition of them. Of course, Lenovo is a Chinese company, so it’s not that surprising that it all came through this quickly.
Anyways, today kicks off the launch of Motorola’s line-up that includes the Moto X (2nd gen), Moto G (2nd gen) with LTE, Moto X Pro, and Moto Hint. The Moto 360 will come some time later, but for now, Moto wants us to focus on those first four products. (more…)
Immediately after we broke news of DODOcase leather watch bands being available for the Moto 360 last week, we purchased a handful. With their premium price tag ($60), we wanted to get them in house as fast as possible to share thoughts on in case some of you were thinking about picking them up, but were hesitant to spend that kind of cash. Thanks to semi-quick shipping, ours have arrived! (more…)
