The Motorola Moto 360 may be priced at £199 here in the UK, according to one online retailer.
There have been numerous rumours and leaks surrounding Motorola’s forthcoming stylish smartwatch, but it’s been difficult to pin down a likely price.
Back towards the end of May it was reported that the Moto 360 might come in below the £150 mark.
However, a new report from UK retailer MobileFun suggests that it’ll be a little pricier than that.
“We recently named the Motorola Moto 360 the most anticipated smartwatch in the world, even beating out Apple’s expected Apple Watch in terms of media attention,” reads the initial blog posting. “That’s why we’re happy to announce the first UK price for the Motorola Moto 360: £199.”
The fact that this post has since been amended to remove the price might suggest that there’s something in this. Or it might just mean that it was speculative nonsense. Who knows?
If true, £199 would make the Moto 360 cheaper than the Samsung Gear 2‘s launch price.
If reports of the LG G Watch are to be believed, however, it would make the Moto 360 a little more expensive than its fellow Android Wear flagship. It’s been suggested that the LG smartwatch will cost less than £170.
We’re expecting to see the Motorola Moto 360 making an official appearance some time in July, not long after the LG G Watch takes it s Google I/O bow on June 25.
