Moving forward, the Moto 360 will cost less from two of its sellers. Both Motorola and the Google Store have knocked the starting price of the smartwatch down to $149, a drop of $100 compared to the launch price. This, however, is not just a sale or temporary discount. The price of the Moto 360 through Motorola and the Google Store is permanently $149 to start.
This price drop could indicate that a successor to last year’s model is one the way. Based on Motorola’s current release cycle, the new Moto 360 should arrive in late August or early September. Until then, an Android Wear device at this price is quite the steal.

Both AT&T and US Cellular have finally started rolling out the much-anticipated Lollipop update to all their carrier-branded variants of the Moto X (2014) located in the United States. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade brings the latest version of the Android operating system (5.1) to the handset, together with a bunch of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.
Tonight, Motorola announced that Android 5.1 Lollipop is “coming to a #DroidTurbo near you.” The company issued a tweet on Monday evening that thanked everyone for their patience, likely meaning that a software update with Lollipop is imminent for the Verizon-exclusive device.
The new Moto G is soon to be announced sometime this year and we don’t know much about it yet. That changes today because the Moto G (2015) or codename “Osprey” has had some photos leak out.
The longstanding relationship between Verizon and Motorola received new life in 2014 when the two released the DROID Turbo. The device, which was available exclusively to Big Red’s customers, had everything that a spec-obsessed consumer could want right down to long battery life. And this year Motorola will produce another device for Verizon being referred to internally as ‘Kinzie’.
Motorola’s David Schuster took to Google+ again to announce that Android 5.1 soak tests are officially rolling out for the Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2013) with LTE in the US. We earlier saw unofficial leaks of a Moto X (2014) running Android 5.1 on Verizon’s network.
Motorola has begun launching the Moto X (2nd Gen) Android 5.1 soak test on Verizon, according to an Android Police tipster. This comes after the Lenovo-owned company yesterday announced a final release for the Moto X Pure Edition.
A new massive benchmark from Tom’s Guide has put six of the best performing smartphones on the market against each other to see which phone came out on top in a variety of situations. The tests measured everything from real-life performance and tasks you’d typically do on your smartphone every day, to gaming and other benchmarks. The test measured the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4, HTC One M9, Google Nexus 6, Asus Zenfone 2, and Apple iPhone 6, so there’s a very wide variety of hardware here. Read more
Earlier today, Woot kicked off a new deal on all three colorways of the Moto 360. Buying the smartwatch using this promo saves customers a whopping $100; so you now can pick one up for as little as $149.99. However, stock is extremely limited — so if you want to bag yourself one you better act fast.
A new report from an Android Central tipster says that Lollipop soak tests invites are going out for the Droid Turbo on Verizon. We’ve heard plenty of rumors in the past claiming that Lollipop is in the works for the Droid Turbo. And now it’s finally upon us.
If all goes will with the soak test, DROID Turbo owners should begin seeing the official update not too long from now.
