Motorola speaks out about alleged Moto 360 pricing


Recently, we got a look at what the price of the Moto 360 might be. Motorola is holding a contest that includes an “Approximate Retail Value” that’s set at $249. Of course, this made people very excited because that’s a very good price for a high-end smartwatch. But Motorola doesn’t feel that it’s fair that people are assuming that the Moto 360 will launch at $249.

Thanks for your excitement around our Moto 360 Design Face-Off contest! We want to make clear that the “Approximate Retail Value” (ARV) indicated in our rules is included for tax purposes only and should not be interpreted as the suggested retail price of the Moto 360 when it becomes available for purchase.Motorola

This $249 price is approximate and could change by the time the device launches. We may see the Moto 360 launch at $299 or even at $199 (though that’s highly unlikely). But the value given was approximate, so it likely isn’t far off from what the launch price will be. The value just seems so perfect.

So there you have it: the Moto 360′s $249 price tag is simply an approximation. The final price is still unknown. Tell us, what do you think the Moto 360′s price should be set at?

    Do they accept human organs? $250 sounds too good to be true. Then again this is the company that brought the Moto X and Moto G.

      They don’t, but I do O_o

    Personally I hope it costs more.. The more it costs the more it will most likely be able to do. I want a full featured smart watch, not a budget p.o.s.

      Motorola seem to have done well with their other budget devices IMO and looking at what we know now there is certainly one thing we almost know.
      The Motorola 360 is no POS whatever price

  • Nicholas Vettese

    I think that they are going to sell a butt load of these watches, no matter the price. I hope that they are cautious now with their pricing due to this ARV, which would be the sweet spot, and they would mostly likely sell tens of thousands more at that level.

    Hopefully it’s can do some things on its own and not totally dependent on your smart phone. That would suck for the possible price point this thing will come in at.
