Moto 360 HEader
After being tipped on pricing for the Motorola Moto 360 the other day, Motorola has this afternoon announced official pricing and availability for the Android Wear watch.

The watch will be available in two styles: Stainless Steel Black with Black leather band, and Stainless Steel Silver with Stone leather band from October 31st in both Australia and New Zealand, for a RRP of A$329/NZ$359. The Moto 360 will be available with a steel band version early next year for a price of A$359/NZ$395.

While Motorola hasn’t announced which retailers will be stocking the watch, we know that Harvey Norman has it on their system, and we’re pretty sure that other retailers carrying Motorola products, such as the Moto E, Moto G and Moto X will carry it as well; Stores such as JB Hi-Fi, Good Guys and Dick Smith Electronics.

Ok, so Harvey Norman seem to be the only retailer that knows anything about it. I reserved one at one store after calling another who had no knowledge of it and no details in his system.

They said to me today, that the aus wholesaler likely doesn’t have them in the country at the moment, and that it could be ~23rd of Nov. that they come in.

Been to the good guys, Harvey Norman, and dick Smith and no one has the watch and they can’t tell me when it’ll be released. Dick Smith didn’t even have it on their system!

same with me, those that say one is reserved have probably just had someone say they will do so if they come in, at this stage no retailer from my calls knows if they are getting stock, they will know tomorrow afternoon.

Where abouts did they confirm Friday’s date. I spoke to Motorola Live Chat and also Harvey Norman live chat and neither could give me any info. 🙁

I went to Alexandria today, the guy was useless, didn’t know about it and didn’t attempt to look it up. I then rang JB, it is in the system but no stock on order or in the system however that may change but JB will have it eventually.

Just a heads up for anyone looking Harvey Norman have them currently listed as available in November with a price tag of 400 – way to go Harvey……. rip offs…

Uhh… I called the FG store and they said the list price is $329 in their system (as per the other post). Are you sure you’re not confusing it with the NZ HN?

Looks like they have fallen into line, it was in the system as 400 till today…

Well I have no idea what happened there… I called them up 2 days ago when the other Moto 360 post went up and that was when they told me it was $329…

Anyone with small wrists tried this? Want to get one for my wife. She tried my gear live, and it was much too big, so hoping this might be a bit smaller…

I have small wrists for a guy (6th snallest setting) and it fits just fine. I got my girlfriend to try it on too, she has small wrists for a female (smallest setting) and its too big on her. Hope that helps
