Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch w/ free $50 best Buy gift card for $300 shipped ($350 value)

As part of its President’s Day Sale, Best Buy offers a Motorola Moto 360 Smart Watch with a free $50 best Buy gift card for $299.99 shipped. That’s the same as its typical selling price, but with this deal you’re getting a free $50 credit to Best Buy. The bonus gift card will be automatically added to your shopping cart during checkout.

We were absolutely blown away by it during our testing:

The Moto 360 is the best smartwatch you can currently buy. If you’re thinking about buying one, go do it. Don’t look at the other Android Wear devices because they are inferior, at least for the time being.

… It’s a sleek and well-designed smartwatch that brings all the golden features we’ve seen with other solutions in the same space. I’ll continue to wear my Moto 360 until something better comes along, but even then, a smartwatch that looks this slick will be hard to ditch.

It doubles as an activity tracker and features Bluetooth 4.0, a built-in microphone, various sensors, and a stainless-steel case. Hundreds of Amazon reviewers rate it 4.1 out of 5 stars.
