Are you looking to purchase a budget-friendly smartwatch? If so, this is the perfect moment as Motorola?s Moto 360 (Gen 2) is now available at a significantly discounted price on eBay.
At the same time, rumors suggest that Motorola is working on a successor called Moto 360 (Gen 3). The release could be anytime soon. This is also because both Apple and Samsung have released the successors (Apple Watch Series 2 and Samsung Gear S3) for this year. It is worth noting that the Gear S3, in specific, is garnering good reviews. Hence, it goes without saying that Motorola will also be gearing up to release the successor soon.
eBay has listed the 45mm variant of the Moto 360 Sport (Gen 2) for just $139.99, while the original price used to be $199.99. Buyers can choose from two different colors they offer, White and Orange/Flame. In any case, keep in mind that only a limited quantity of this smartwatch are available on discount.
