There are a number of reasons why you should buy the Moto 360 right now. Let me walk you through them.
1. The Moto 360 2 is on its way
Probably the best argument for buying the current Moto 360 right now is that there is a new version on its way. This means that the first Moto 360 will continue to drop in price and will probably run out of stock as soon as the new one is released shortly after.
For those of you who are not willing and able to spend more than $300 on a smartwatch, the Moto 360’s first generation watch is a welcome alternative. You can make one your own at a humble price of somewhere between $120-$150.
2. The best looking Android Wear smartwatch
Of course this is somewhat of a tricky statement, but I find the Moto 360 to be the best looking smartwatch on the planet. That is because it is stylish enough to wear every single day and does not look too boxy/technical.
You can wear it to work, meet business partners or on any regular day when you are out and about and it will “always” fit to your outfit and the occasion.
3. Looking for a fitness tracker, like Fitbit?
If you would like to start tracking your health and fitness and are thinking about buying a smartwatch or fitness tracker to do so, think about the advantages of having an actual screen on your wrist instead of just a piece of “plastic” with a few LED lights.
The Moto 360 can track your health and fitness using the Moto Health Tracking App or Google Fit. Both track your heart rate and the steps that you take per day. Plus the apps have a push notification system that alerts you when you should do a little bit more to meet your goals.
4. Your friends will be jealous and think it is the “Apple Watch”
Interestingly enough, still a lot of people have not seen the Apple Watch. The Moto 360 might be an actual alternative for many due to its form factor. The Apple Watch looks very technical and is not the most beautiful product out there.
Next to that, compatibility is an issue. As more than 60% of all smartphones out there run Android, they are not compatible with the Apple Watch. In the Android Wearables universe, this is arguably the most pretty smartwatch out there that you CAN actually use.
5. Try it out, great entry model smartwatch
If you are not sure about whether a smartwatch is really useful for you or not, spending $120ish bucks on trying one out and giving it a run for its money is not all that bad.
Every day life and you lifestyle will determine how useful it is for you to wear a smartwatch or any other wearable for that matter. So why not try this one out and give it a shot. Either you love it, or you’ll hate it, but at least you can have an honest opinion on whether you consider it to be useful or not.
Summary: why to buy a Moto 360 now
I guess I could go on for a little bit more. I think you should of course decide for yourself if you would like to give the Moto 360 a round for its money.
In my opinion: It is great value for money, beautifully crafted and surely worth giving it a go. Thinking about buying one? Or still have questions/doubts? Please do leave your comments below and I will help you out to take the right decision.
