Motorola Moto X Style Pure Edition

Valentine’s Day is the next major holiday for those in the U.S., which means companies are more than happy to kick off some promotions. Enter Motorola, which is already feeling the love with a few deals involving the second-generation Moto 360, Moto G 2015, and the Moto X Pure Edition.

Starting with Motorola’s smartwatch, the company will offer a free leather band if you purchase the Moto 360 with a metal band. Purchasing the Moto 360 with a metal band costs $350, which is already quite a bit of change, so being able to get a free leather band, which normally goes for $40, is welcome. Don’t fret if you don’t see leather bands for $0, though — the discount will be applied after you add both the Moto 360 and the leather band of your choice to your shopping cart.

Moving on to the Moto G 2015, Motorola will offer two free additional shells if you buy the handset, regardless of whether you choose the $180 or $220 version. Each additional shell normally goes for $15, so you’d be saving around $30. Notably, the Moto G carries an IPX7 rating, which means that it can withstand being submerged in a meter of water for 30 minutes.

Finally, we have the Moto X Pure Edition, particularly the more fashion-focused models. You see, back in November of last year, Motorola announced that it had teamed up with designer Jonathan Adler to release three new designs for the Moto X Pure Edition. Because those designs were attached to the 32GB variant of the handset, they fetched a $25 premium, which translates to $475. For now, you can pick up either of the three special edition Moto X Pure Edition handsets for the sum of $400.

All of these promotions are currently live and will last until 11:59 am ET on February 16.
