Smartwatches and fitness trackers have enjoyed quite a bit of popularity over the last 18 months as manufacturers like Apple, Motorola, Huawei and others vie for the prime wrist real estate.

A new product called the Ticwatch 2 from Mobvoi hit Kickstarter today with a $99 price tag and big dreams. Its clean design is attractive, and with GPS plus heart rate monitoring built-in, it also checks all the boxes…

expiredThe short-lived Moto 360 Sport is now just $161.32 at Amazon (Reg. $200)

The Moto 360 Sport, which we said earlier this year is the best Android Wear fitness solution so far, has today popped up on Amazon for a new low price of $161.32 shipped. That may not be as great of a deal as the crazy bundle that Motorola offered last week (which combined the Moto X Pure and the 360 Sport for just $400), but it’s the best deal we’ve seen yet for the watch by itself. $161.32 is about $40 less than the current going price of $200 and $140 less than its original retail price of $300…

Motorola offering $100 discount when you purchase new Moto X Pure and Moto 360 together

Running up to the holidays, Motorola was offering some great discounts on its older Android and Android Wear products. Sadly, those same deals didn’t apply to the newer and rather fantastic Moto X Pure and Moto 360 from 2015. That changes this month, as the Lenovo-owned company begins offering money off for customers buying both products together.

Anyone buying the new Moto X Pure Edition (2015) and 2nd gen Moto 360 together will get $100 off at checkout. There’s no promo code to remember, just add the two products to your basket at Motorola.com in the US and the discount applies automatically. That means a package deal combining the two devices will cost you $599 for the base models, rather than the usual $699. Of course, adding extra storage to your phone or choosing a more premium material for the phone’s back or the Moto 360’s watch strap will cost extra. This promotion includes free shipping.

Currently, Amazon sells the Moto 360 and Moto X Pure Edition (2015) at their full $299 and $399 respective price tags. As do eBay and B&H Photo Video.

This is the first time we’ve seen either of the new products with a significant discount anywhere in the US. The deal is available until January 12th, 10:59 Central Time.

expiredOriginal LG Watch Urbane in Gold or Silver drops to $199 shipped (Orig. $349)

Back when it first launched, the LG Watch Urbane drew a lot of attention to itself thanks to its striking appearance. The round-faced chunky metal smartwatch didn’t look like anything else on the Android Wear market. If you’re still looking for a good value smartwatch, this could be the way to go. If you’re quick you snag the LG Watch Urbane for just $199 (down from $349) in one of today’s Lightning Deals. The deal ends in less than two hours (from time of typing). If you don’t manage to grab it, you can head on over to Rakuten where you can get the same deal on the silver or gold model.

LG G Watch R drops from $299 to $249 following Watch Urbane release

Just moments after the LG Watch Urbane became available on the Google Store, the price of LG’s G Watch R has dropped from $299 to $249. As pointed out before, the Watch Urbane is similar to the G Watch R in almost every way except for design. The G Watch R features stainless steel body with a brushed metal finish, while the Watch Urbane features a more high-end look and is available in gold and silver.

The G Watch R features a 1.3-inch OLED display with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 300 processor and 410mAh battery. It’s also dust resistant and can be immersed in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

You can read our thoughts on the G Watch R here and buy it for $249 on the Google Store now. At that price point, it’s a pretty solid deal.

Motorola’s rounded Android Wear offering, the Moto 360, has also received a price cut. The device is down to $179.99 from its initial price point of $249.99. This is the second time recently that Motorola and Google have cut the price of the 360.

expiredBest Buy offers another $100 off when you buy an already-discounted Moto 360 with an Android phone

If you’re in the market for a new smartwatch, now might be a pretty good time to get the Moto 360. In a new deal today from Best Buy, the retailer is offering $100 savings when you purchase both Motorola’s Android Wear smartwatch and a new Android phone. Considering that the Moto 360 is already on sale at Best Buy—and nothing in the small print says the two offers are incompatible—this probably means you can effectively get a Moto 360 for $79.99 (and it looks like you can get another $25 off if you can use the current .edu promotion).

expiredMoto 360, the best Android Wear Smartwatch, is on sale for $278 shipped in champagne gold (Reg. $330)

Amazon offers the Motorola Moto 360 18mm Android Wear Smartwatch in champagne gold for $277.52 with free shipping, which is a savings of 16% off its list price of $330 and the best deal we’ve ever seen.

In our opinion, the Moto 360 sits atop the Android Wear mountain:

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 (low energy), a built-in microphone, various sensors, and a stainless-steel case. Use your savings to buy this Motorola charging stand.

Now that all the Apple Watch details are laid out for consumers, there is a big choice to be made for those interested in purchasing a timepiece with smart functionality. The Apple Watch will start at $349, with most of our readers electing for a $400 model, although early adoption levels seem to be low. If you’re thinking that a lower priced watch is more appropriate, it looks like you’re not alone. With the Pebble Time making a timely appearance on Kickstarter, many have chosen to back the lower priced option. In fact, following the Apple Watch keynote, Pebble saw a 167% funding increase.

Despite all the new releases and hype, the original Pebble is still capable of getting the job done at a more affordable price.
