The first-generation Moto 360 launched in Canada late 2014 and has since been succeeded by the second-gen Moto 360. The smartwatch’s inventory has slowly shrunk at retailers and carriers, and it’s even been completely removed from the Google Play Store.

But if you’re looking for a deal on this wearable, which is still a powerful device, Quebec-based Videotron has a compelling deal right now. The Moto 360’s retail price is $279.95 but the carrier has heavily discounted the first-gen Moto 360 by $150, to a respectable $129.95.

While it doesn’t come with the new features loaded on the second-generation Moto 360, it does feature a 1.56-inch 320 x 290 pixel IPS LCD display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, a pedometer and accelerometer, an optical heart rate sensor, and wireless charging. The first-gen Moto 360 is also IP67 waterproof rated, and the 320mAh battery lasts over a day on a single charge.

    Pretty good deal. I bought one last year for 150$ and never regret it. I have booth Apple Watch and moto 360. Android is way better due to Google now. Just way smarter. Reminds me when I have to leave to an appointment or tells me when the traffic slows down on my way home. Battery life is on booth not bad but apple is a bit better.

    Moto 360 for that price is a must buy

    During the boxing week sales Telus had a similar deal ($120) which I ordered but they couldn’t fulfill, thankfully they honored the deal and gave all those who ordered the 2nd gen for same price, was the 42mm version, finding it a tad too small but considering the price we’ve learned to deal with it LOL.

      My girlfriend just got me one for my anniversary from Best Buy last week, doubt they’d price match it from Videotron when I’m in Ontario, though. It’s a great watch

      I am from Toronto. They did it for me.

    Any options for Albertans? I didn’t buy a smart watch because I had a watch, but my Fossil has since bit the dust so I think I might give these a go.
