Motorola Gives Brits a Moto X Discount to Celebrate Today’s Moto 360 Launch

Moto X (2014) review, design big

Motorola will finally begin selling the Moto 360 in the U.K. today, starting at 12 p.m. GMT. To celebrate its launch, the company is offering Brits a 24-hour discount on the new Moto X, bringing its price down from £419.99 (approx. $677) to £359.99 (approx. $580).

If you were planning to buy both devices at the same time, then, or you just want to bag the Moto X on its own, today’s your lucky day. But you’re going to need to move quickly if you want a Moto 360. In an email sent out to fans who registered their interest in the device, Motorola says that initial supplies will be limited in the U.K., and so it’s likely it will sell out quickly.

Our review of Motorola’s first Android Wear device should help you decide whether or not it’s worth it. But in a nutshell, the Moto 360 is one of the best smartwatches we’ve seen so far — especially now that its early battery life woes have been fixed. If you’re planning to invest in the Android Wear ecosystem soon, you certainly won’t be disappointed if this is your first device.

The new Moto X is pretty darn awesome, too. In addition to its 5.2-inch 1080p display, the device now sports a much-improved design with a metal frame, a Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.

The Moto X will ship with Android 4.4.4 KitKat onboard, but Motorola has vowed to update it to Android 5.0 Lollipop. And given the company’s timelines with the most recent Android updates, users shouldn’t have to wait too long for that.

Remember, the Moto X discount is good for just 24 hours starting at 12 p.m. GMT through Moto Maker, so be sure to grab yours today if you want to save some cash.
