Weekly sidebar poll results: Is $250 the right price for the Moto 360?

Numbers don’t tell the whole story

Everyone’s a little excited about the Moto 360, and when it was leaked that the price may be $250, we had to ask and see what everyone thought of that. We made the poll simple, and asked if you would buy a Moto 360 for $250.

Over 67-percent of us would.

So it appears that Motorola found a price point that people could swallow (if that $250 price is right). We also asked for folks to spill it all in the comments and let us know if they will be buying a Moto 360 if they said “yes”, or why they won’t be buying one no matter what their answer. Some interesting conversation going on in there.
