Hours after the Moto 360 debuted on retail, the Android wearable device has reportedly sold out. Motorola has issued a statement confirming that, yes, all initial stocks of the Moto 360 that were offered online had indeed sold out. The phone maker further stated that it is currently trying to replenish the supply, but with the very high demand, it is not sure when the wearable devices will be available again for purchase.
Priced at $250.00, the Moto 360 went on sale on Friday but has since sold out. But as to how many units were bought, the company has chosen not to make a statement regarding that.
The fact that the wearable device sold out in relatively quick time means that consumer interest is really high, and for sure, there are still would-be buyers out there waiting for the next batch of Moto 360s. Perhaps as a gesture of reassurance, Motorola announced that those who plan to purchase the smartwatch once it is available can register in the Motorola website to get updates regarding replenished stocks.
The watch is being sold through the Google Play store, and on BestBuy.com, wherein the watch is listed as a sold out item. A Best Buy representative has said that buyers can reserve for a unit by depositing $25.00 in the form of a gift card. Once the watch is available, buyers can use the card to purchase their Moto 360.
Motorola stated that it will try to add more retail partners and carriers later this year in order to satisfy the strong demand for the wearable device.
The Moto 360 runs on Android Wear, the wearable-compatible version of Google's Android operating system. It features a Texas Instruments OMAP 3 processor, and has 4 gigabytes of internal storage as well as 512 megabytes of random access memory (RAM). The smartwatch also has a 320 mAh battery.
