For Australians, it has been a very very long wait to get our hands on the Moto 360 – the company’s flagship smartwatch running Android Wear. But we’ve got some good news for all of those waiting for the Moto 360. Motorola Australia has finally announced when they will start selling the device, and the price.
The Moto 360 will be available from October 31 and will come in two styles: a stainless steel black version with a black leather strap, and a stainless steel gray version with a stone leather strap. Both will be priced at $329. Given the US price for the Moto 360 is US$249 – or around $285 in Australian Dollars – it is a reasonable price since you also have to take into account the GST.
Motorola Australia has confirmed that the steel band version will be coming to Australia in early 2015. They will be priced at $359.
However, stock will be severely limited when it comes to market with Motorola asking customers to check with their preferred retailer – such as Harvey Norman and Dick Smith – if they have any stock. This is likely due to shipments being redirected to other markets, including the United States – where it sold out in just three hours after its launch there back in September.
