Latest Android Wear update is on its way to the Moto 360 (2015)
Good news for anyone currently wearing a Moto 360 (2015)! It looks like Motorola is pushing out the Marshmallow update to the smartwatch, bringing all those newly announced Android Wear features to the stylish wearable. Things like Doze support, improved gestures, and alternate messaging platforms are all on board, plus all the things that Motorola has baked in. While that update does enable speakers on watches that have them, the Moto 360 does not include any kind of speaker, so don’t get your hopes up there.
Motorola is enabling support for six new languages in the update, plus tons of bug fixes related to step counts, audio playback, and the mandatory stability and performance improvements.
The update should be rolling out over the next few days, so keep an eye out for it.

Motorola’s now selling the Moto 360 Sport through the Google Store in Canada
Motorola has just launched the latest iteration of its Moto 360 smartwatch, the Sport, on the Google Store in Canada. The device has been available to purchase in the region exclusively from Best Buy in various colors for the past couple of weeks, but it’s now listed on the search engine giant’s official Android Wear page in the gorgeous black colorway for $379.99 CAD ($280 USD).
For those who missed its announcement back in December 2015, the Sport is a more lightweight version of the traditional leather-band Moto 360. It’s aimed at the more active amongst us and comes with a plethora of nifty sensors which track your daily steps, calorie intake and heart rate. You can also pre-load music onto the device for wireless playback during exercise.
As the Moto 360 Sport runs the latest build of Google’s Android Wear open-source operating system, you have the facility to place calls, send texts, peruse notifications, keep track of to-do lists, follow directions and, of course, check the time without having to pull out your smartphone, too.
If you’re based in Canada, like the sound of the Moto 360 Sport and want to pick one up in black from the Google Store — hit the source link below.

Motorola tries to capture your heart with deals through Valentine’s Day
Motorola is no stranger to running deals for some of its inventory over holidays. Valentine’s Day is still a couple weeks away, but the manufacturer isn’t wasting any time. Let’s check out what offers Motorola is using to show you its love.
This is probably the first deal that we’ve seen for the 2nd Gen. Moto 360. It’s not a discount off of the asking price, but rather, an incentive. If you purchase the Moto 360 right now, you can throw on a metal band and get a leather band for free.
This is pretty sweet if you like changing up your look from time to time. The 2nd Gen. Moto 360 makes it easy is switch out bands (it’s just a latch on the band that pops it off). The free band is a savings of $40.
The Moto G offer is a similar deal. You won’t get a discount on the asking price, but you’ll get an accessory for free. Actually, in this case, two free accessories: two extra back covers to change up the phone’s look.
Recall that the Moto G allows the user to pop off the back cover and switch out with another from a multitude of colors.
Each shell runs $15, so you’re looking at a $30 savings if changing up your phone’s appearance on a whim tickles your fancy.
Moto X Pure Edition
Lastly, the Moto X Pure Edition is getting some love as well. Motorola recently teamed up with a renowned designer, Jonathan Adler, for three unique back cover looks. The limited edition phones normally run at a premium ($475), but right now they’re at the same price of a normal Moto X Pure Edition ($400).
Bear in mind that these offers run through Feb. 16th at 10:59a.m. CT. Hit up the source link below to get to the deal’s launch page.

Motorola starts sending out invites to an event it’s holding in India on December 1
Earlier today, Motorola sent out its first batch of invitations to an exclusive press event it’s holding in New Delhi on Tuesday, December 1. Unfortunately, the Lenovo-owned company hasn’t disclosed what exactly it’s planning to unveil at the conference, but there are some hints being subtly dropped by the firm that suggest we could see the release of the second-generation Moto 360 in India.
We don’t have any information with regards to what price tag the device will carry in the region, but in the US it’s priced between $299.99 to $429.99, depending on configuration, which leads us to believe that we could see it hit the shelves for around INR19, 900 to INR28,500.

Motorola’s Cyber Monday sale saves on last year’s phones and smartwatches
Motorola seems to be clearing out its stock of old hardware for Cyber Monday this year. The company is discounting last year’s Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360 models rather than the updated versions. But, know knows, Motorola could always surprise consumers with flash deals on this year’s round of phones and smartwatches. And we sure hope they do. Very few people will be inclined to get last year’s Moto X when they could just spend $100 more to get the Moto X Pure Edition. The same thing goes for Motorola’s smartwatch. All of Motorola’s Cyber Monday deals aren’t that big of a savings when you look at the current models’ prices.
- Moto X (2014) 64GB for $299 (25% off)
- Moto G (2014) for $99 (40% off)
- Moto 360 (2014) for $149 (50% off)
Each of these deals will be live on Monday, November 30, at 12:00PM ET.
