A regular quality watch already cost about 250-500$. I would happily buy this product between 250$-350$.

I have doubts that the watch is going to retail for $250, given that its competitors are selling for $200 (Gear Live) and $230 (G Watch)

Moto does however sell some competitively priced devices, maybe this will follow suit. However, I'd happily buy it for 300-350 dollars.

It's been listed for a while online in my local market for €290, or US$394, including 25% sales and value added tax, which would translate to €232, and US$315 respectively before tax, but with import duties to the EU.

A regular high quality watch will likely last longer. These smartwatches are consumables. Expect to change as often as changing phones, if not more frequently. Although not quite comparable I've been through a few, all from SonyEricsson. The non replaceable rechargeable battery will die, and of course technology marches on so either the next generation becomes more frugal, and hence lasting longer between charges, or slimmer, or more powerful, or all of it, and screens go up in resolution etc. Well, we all know the drill.

Good point and understood but i believe this is not a sony, samsung or lg product. The products of Motorola are made to stand well and last imho. Even if technologically it would grow old by time, a working and quality device would be enough for many of us after the years. I still have a V3 working in mint condition and that was bought in 2005. Bought a droid razr in 2011 which was pristine condition after two years of usage without any kind of protection. This is what i mean about motorola. The frame and the strap of the watch look to be made good quality. I wouldn't like them to market us a consumable plastic device that would break in a year but at least should last for 3-5 years. Hopefully they would deliver this kind of product to us with the 360. That's why i wouldn't want to them to price it cheap and sting me a new cheap made one every year. This is what sony and samsung does.
