By now you probably know all about the Motorola Moto 360. It’s round, runs on Android Wear, is water resistant, comes with a heart monitor and pedometer built in, and has a built in microphone for voice actions and text input. The only thing you probably didn’t know before now was when the Moto 360 was going to launch, where it was going to be sold, and for how much.

Motorola has just announced that the Moto 360 will be available today starting at 11AM C.T. on Motorola’s website, through Google Play, at BestBuy.com and through select Best Buy stores. The device will set you back $249 with either a black or gray leather band. Later this fall, a metal edition of the Moto 360 will launch for $299, but you can buy metal bands separately for $79 or leather bands separately for $29.

The Moto 360 faces some tough competition in the Android Wear powered smartwatch race, but there’s good reason to believe it will still be the number one smartwatch to beat this holiday season. Let us know if you’ll be picking one up in the comments below.
