You can no longer buy the Moto 360 from Motorola

Motorola  Moto 360-8

In case we needed any more clues the second-generation Moto 360 is coming, its predecessor was just removed from the Motorola online store. Although the watch’s landing page still remains, attempting to purchase one takes you to Motorola’s support site.

The Moto 360 went on sale just under one year ago, but it was actually first unveiled last March. It is certainly in need of a refresh, then, and recent leaks have suggested a new model with a slightly improved design is right around the corner.

The second-generation Moto 360 is expected to come in two sizes — small and large — and will have larger lugs that will make swapping straps a whole lot easier. Motorola has also relocated its physical button slightly, but it hasn’t been able to eliminate the bezel at the bottom of its display.

We don’t yet know when the new Moto 360 will make its debut, but it seems it’s not too far away now. Motorola appears to have all but run out of the supplies of the original model, which is no longer available through the company’s website.

As noticed by Phandroid, the Moto 360 page continues to state the device is available through Moto Maker with prices starting at $149.99, and the “build yours” button also remains. But if you click it, you are now redirection to the Moto 360 support site, with no option to make a purchase.

You’ll still be able to get the Moto 360 from third-party retailers for now, but given its aging internals, we have to assume that the device won’t be coming back once existing stock has dried up. If you haven’t already started saving for the Moto 360 2, then, now is the time.
