expiredApple Watch sale at Best Buy, $50 off across the board, starting at $299 shipped (Open box $278)

Best Buy is knocking $50 off the price of Apple Watch across the board making the base price 38mm Sport model $299 with free shipping, the lowest price we’ve found from a major retailer. Best Buy has most (but not all) of the popular configurations with some open boxes starting as low as $277.99 (those seem to be selling out fast).

Base Model 42mm are going for $349 and stainless steel Apple Watch starts at $499.

We already know that Target, Best Buy and others will have big Black Friday discounts on the Apple Watch but only with gift cards or ambiguous “up to $100 off” the likely higher end models. It is hard to imagine anything more than $50 taken off the base models this year so if you are going to get a base model, now might be the time to jump in –especially if you have some Best Buy credit burning a hole in your pocket.

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.
