New Moto 360 with “Stone Leather” Design Available Now from Best Buy

Getting your hands on the Moto 360 right now is easier said than done. The flashy new smartwatch quickly sold out on both Best Buy and Motorola’s websites, and it’s delayed until October 6 on Google Play. Now out of nowhere it looks like Best Buy is selling a new “Stone Leather” variant of the Android Wear device, and it’s actually in stock!

According to Droid-Life, the stone variant is replacing Motorola’s original gray variant. It’s a bit darker, but otherwise looks pretty identical. Not that we’re complaining. Both versions look pretty great to us thanks to that sleek circular display and metal bezel.

In our Moto 360 review, we argued that the smartwatch is the best Android Wear device out today. Sure the battery life could be better, but you should be able to make it through a full day if you’re careful. Our biggest problem is still with Google’s wearable operating system, which still needs a ton of work. The company promised to push out updates in the future though, so you probably won’t miss out on future software features by picking up a new smartwatch today.

You can buy the Stone Leather Moto 360 from Best Buy right now. The company says it should ship within a day, though unfortunately it’s not offering in-store pickup. If you’ve been trying to buy Motorola’s new smartwatch, now’s your chance, but act fast before this model sells out as well.
