AT&T will sell Moto 360 and G Watch R beginning this Friday
For all of their intelligent design, wearables haven’t exactly been making headlines for their unprecedented sales. Part of this consumer apathy may be due to a simple lack of presence: sure techies know where to get them, but what about mainstream consumers? In an effort to get the ball rolling, AT&T has just announced that it will begin selling both the Motorola Moto 360 and LG G Watch R in stores beginning this Friday. Details are as follows:
The Moto 360 will retail for $249 which, in and of itself, isn’t anything special. Buy one alongside the well received Moto X however, and AT&T will take $50 off the price tag making for a more enticing $199. Please check out Android Authority’s coverage of the Moto 360 to better familiarize yourself with the device.
The LG G Watch R will retail for $299 with no discount currently offered, even when purchased along side a companion phone. Still, LG’s second smart watch proved to be an extremely impressive offering when we reviewed it a few days ago.
Given that smart devices have now received an extra bit of support from a major US carrier, is it long before others join in? While many customers balk at the idea of another expensive purchase, offering discounts would be a major step in selling them to consumers, especially as their designs evolve at an incredibly fast pace.
