The Moto 360 has attracted considerable attention since its announcement, and T-Mobile is the latest network to confirm it’ll soon sell the smartwatch to its customers. The news comes from T-Mobile’s tech evangelist Des Smith, who replied to a question on Twitter, saying “The Moto 360 will be available at T-Mobile on November 12.”
T-Mobile’s announcement comes the day after AT&T let us know it would put the Moto 360 up for sale on November 7. To help tempt buyers, AT&T will be offering a $50 price reduction on the 360, provided it’s purchased with the new 2014 Moto X smartphone. The Android Wear watch will cost $250 if bought separately.
Motorola’s wise to make the Moto 360 easy for people to buy, because its days as being the only truly desirable smartwatch are coming to an end, thanks to rapidly increasing competition. For example, LG’s G Watch R is also about to arrive on the AT&T network, while Sony’s SmartWatch 3 is already out through Verizon. The minimalistic Moto 360 has a 1.56-inch circular face, a heart rate monitor, 4GB of internal storage space, and is made from stainless steel. The strap is leather.
Due to the unorthodox way we’ve heard T-Mobile’s news, there’s no information on whether it’ll be offering a similar deal to AT&T, which colors it’ll be stocking, or even what the price will be. These details will no doubt become known over the next few days, and we’ll update you here when they’re official.
