mrtoken: I got sick of waiting and cancelled my pre order with Noels last week (ordered on line).
I have been given 2 different dates from when I first order it at 399.
First day was the 24th then sometime in November

Once I cancelled the order I went into the store in albany and said "what is the best price for one" they came back with "we can't reduce it any more than the current price of $399" so I walked out.

If the RRP is $359 then they are milking an extra $40 out of each watch.
Funny thing however is that Harvey Norman has them at the same price and noels


I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I do still have my NL preorder sitting there however because Harvey Norman, NL, and Warehouse Stationery are all suggesting $399. I'm going to be pretty damn grumpy if they arrive in the country, I receive my preorder and the release at the rrp of $359.

Really not sure what to do at this point. Have been waiting for it since the original planned arrival date of the 13th :-( and have been down $400 with nothing to show for it, since the 7th of this month.

I believe all 3 retailes (NL, HN, WS) are trying to get them from the same, slightly unreliable supplier hence why it is taking so long.

+1 I ordered on 6th Oct after getting excited seeing the other thread. I called NL last week and they said 1st Nov, but weren't sure if that was a shipping date etc.
I was so unhappy with them I pre-ordered a Note 4 for my wife - still waiting :(   !!!!

For any redditors out there, the moto 360 sub-reddit has a lot of useful info and links to custom watch faces and apps. Got a nice collection of watch faces and apps lined up to try (hopefully tomorrow!).

Just phoned NL to chase the 360. Told they are still having issues so no date :(
To add insult to injury wife's Note 4 order due today is now 2 weeks away. Useless. Will probably end up cancelling both orders.

Hi Guys ,

Been a lurker on here for a while now while I was researching the Moto 360 , I do have one and its great I have had it for around a week but to be perfectly honest its not for me , I thought before I scratch it up I would see if I could find it a more deserving home , I am going to go back to my good 'ol regular watch , if anyone is interested in mine , pm me a offer and we can see if we can work something out , Silver with Grey strap , all I have done is add a Screen protector , I have all the original packaging and even a spare screen protector , condition is like new.

Trev.

So I just called them again.

Now they are saying "late November" i asked if they could put hold on 1 to pick up from a store when they get them.
I was then told you can pre-order them online.  Said I had done that before but cancelled it as I had been given 5 dates now and the money is better in my bank account than theirs when they can't even give us a date on when someone can have the goods.

So it seems I can't get them to hold one unless I pay them $400.


I wish they would not stuff people around and not put them on their website unless they have confirmed dates.
The dates i have been told so far
15th / 16th October
22nd October
2nd or 3rd November (which then changed to early November)
Now Late November.

freitasm: Contacting Motorola for some update on this.



Oh thanks

Can you also get them to kick the retailer for charging over the RRP.

It would seem they are confused between the leather vs steel bands and the pricing difference

Would like to bump that comment.

Dear god if I have to wait another full month to receive it I may as well pull the preorder and give up on my dream of owning a smartwatch for the time being. That Nexus 6 is looking pretty good and my dollars might be better spent getting a new phone with better battery life (currently have the Nexus 5).
