Motorola contest pegs the price of a Moto 360 smartwatch at $249

Engadget | If you’ve been at all interested in Motorola’s Moto 360, the biggest question has likely been the price: how much will that swanky circular smartwatch set you back? Not that much, if you believe the company’s rules for a watch face design contest. The legal details set the average retail value of a Moto 360 at $249; that’s as much as a relatively posh smartwatch like the Pebble Steel, but less than the $300 you’d pay for tech-laden wristwear like the Gear 2. Before you start budgeting for a timepiece, though, remember that this still isn’t official. While Motorola’s figure gives at least some idea of what to expect, we wouldn’t rule out a higher price tag when the Moto 360 reaches store shelves.

This April, Maharishi and G-SHOCK have collaborated for the third time on a special limited edition G-SHOCK model. This new collaborative timepiece pushes the boundaries of G-SHOCK’s print technology and developed the ability to print patterns on an even greater surface area of the watches strap and bezel, perfect for applying DPM patterns with a greater level of detail than was previously possible. The watch model is perfectly suited for a pattern as intricate as maharishi’s DPM: Lunar Bonsai. Continue reading G-Shock Announces Collaboration with Maharishi
