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…)
We enter 2015 after a year in which Google decided to takeover the wearable market with Android Wear. Companies had tried before Android Wear to make smartwatches, but if we are being honest, have to admit that most were quite terrible. That’s not to say that Android Wear is a perfect option, but it’s safe to say that it is currently the best option, as well as an option that should only get better over time. Companies like Motorola, LG, and ASUS have all bought into Google’s wearable platform, even giving us more choices than I think most expected.
With a year full of 2nd generation wearables surely on the horizon, we are wondering how many of you have already jumped into the game early and picked up a smartwatch? (Who would do such a thing with the Apple Watch on the way!) Do you own a Moto 360? One of the G Watches, perhaps? Or maybe you own one of the other options, like say a Gear Live, Gear 2, Zenwatch, Pebble, etc.? If so, be sure to jump into the comments to talk about your specific watch.
If you don’t own a smartwatch yet, be sure to let us know why.
Four new leather bands are available for the Moto 360 through Motorola’s website this week, made by DODO. The bands are Pergamena leather, bringing bright colors and a unique style.
Priced at $59.99, there are four different color options to choose from. Right now, there is Red, Tan, Blue, and Green. (more…)
As many of you noticed, the Android 5.0.1 “Lollipop” update for the Moto 360 didn’t exactly rollout to all yesterday, even though we were expecting it to. We still aren’t sure why that is, but with an even newer update rolling out to select 360 units today, the delay could be due to a last minute bug squashing. (more…)
According to post at Motorola’s support forum, the full rollout of the new Android 5.0.1 “Lollipop” update for Android Wear should begin today for all owners of the Moto 360. In fact, if you aren’t notified to update, you should be able to pull it by heading into Settings>About and tapping on “System updates.” (more…)
