Moto 360 could cost £199 in the UK

One of the big unanswered questions with surrounding Android Wear devices relates their pricing. But today British outlet MobileFun says it has the first UK price details for Motorola's Moto 360, the circular wearable many have been salivating over since its announcement. And according to the retailer it'll cost £199. That's around the same as the UK price for Samsung's Gear 2 Neo, and a good bit cheaper than the full camera-toting Gear 2.

With recent rumors suggesting the LG G Watch could undercut Samsung's Gear smartwatches, it's looking increasingly likely that both Android Wear watches could arrive at competitive price points. That said, we'll have to wait on final pricing direct from Motorola and LG before it's set in stone.

As for what this means for U.S. pricing, a £199 price tag, less VAT, equates to around $280, so make of that what you will. And as always, take these tentative numbers with a pinch of salt until we hear the official word.

If this indeed ends up being the price I will pass. For that price I will buy a nice high end watch which will last much longer without needing charged.

Most watch people would consider this to be an average watch price, and I'd say the added functionality MAY make it worth the cost of entry. Hard to know until we can all test it out.
