Moto 360 now cost half as much as the Apple Watch Sport

Motorola has announced plans for a 48-hour hardware sale, giving you the chance to snap up a Moto 360 smartwatch on the cheap.

With the wearable still sporting a £199.99 official asking price, Motorola has revealing that those looking for a bargain will next week be able to secure the LG G Watch R rival for ‘just’ £149.99.

Importantly, this will – however briefly – make the 360 half the price of the entry-level Apple Watch Sport, a device which costs £299.

The sale, which kicks off at 00.01am on Monday, May 18, will run for 48 hours, closing at 23:59pm to following day.

“Spring is the season to be out with the old and in with the new, so there’s no better time than now to revamp your technology as Motorola kicks off an exclusive 48 hour sale,” an official company spokesperson stated.

As well as slashing £50 off the cost of the round-faced wearable, Motorola has confirmed that its leading smartphones – the Moto X and Google-branded Nexus 6 – are also set for a price cut.

As part of the sale, the 16GB Moto X will drop from a £395 to a £299 asking price, while the 32GB offering is cut from £435 to £339.

Both deals mark a saving of £96.

Having suffered from slow sales since helping launch the Android Lollipop OS late last year, the Nexus 6 price cut sees the oversized device made (marginally) more affordable.

With £30 savings to be had on both the 32GB and 64GB options, the handsets will be marked up at £449 and £519 respectively during the sale period.
