Motorola has begun running a new deal, where those who buy a 64GB Moto X Pure Edition will get a Moto 360 (2014) for free.
This deal is a hard sell because many consumers would rather have the upgraded Moto 360 smartwatch from 2015, rather than the older version that’s getting close to being on its way out.
Either way, if you want to snag yourself a free Moto 360 (2014), a 64GB Moto X Pure Edition could cost you up to $ 525, depending on your customization selections in the Moto Maker. You’ll also need to act fast, as the deal will end on February 18 at 10:59am Central Time.
As a quick reminder, the Moto X Pure Editon has a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) display and a Snapdragon 808 processor backed with 3GB of RAM. It’s also got an outstanding 21-megapixel rear camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and Motorola’s fast charging technology on-board.
The Moto 360 (2014) is definitely a very nice smartwatch, albeit with that flat tire. However, it’s been replaced by the Moto 360 (2015) in many storefronts and online stores, making it feel like Motorola is just trying to get rid of the “leftovers.”
Do you plan on taking advantage of this promotion?

Motorola has started rolling out the much-anticipated Marshmallow update to all unlocked variants of the Moto G (2015) located in Europe. Strangely, the upgrade carries a slightly different version number to the firmware that was released for the handset in India and North America, but it appears to bundle the same functionality, as well as a handful of regional bug fixes and stability improvements.
As previously mentioned, this update transports the latest build of Marshmallow to the handset, and for those unaware of the differences between Android 5.0 and Android 6.0, the newest edition brings greater control over application permissions, an enhanced battery-life through Doze, a redesigned application drawer, and last but not least Fingerprint-authentication for payments.
To see if the upgrade is ready for your device, open up the Settings application, scroll right down to the bottom and tap on About Device, select the System Updates subheading, then tap Check for Updates. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification prompting you to download and install it.
