The original Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch is just $70 right now

Years later, this is still one of the prettiest smartwatches around.

There's no shortage of smartwatches to choose from these days, both inexpensive -- like the well-regarded $70 Amazfit Bip -- and the not-so-inexpensive, like the Apple Watch Series 6, which starts at $399 and goes way up from there. But one of my all-time favorite smartwatches featuring that classic round face remains the Moto 360 . The first generation of the Moto 360 is $70 right now when you apply promo code DNMOTO360 at Daily Steals. 

Not that long ago, I told you about a similar deal for $90, and this one is cheaper still. And it's far, far below the $250 price at Amazon. Note too, that the latest (third-gen) Moto 360 is selling for $199 right now. 

A few clarifications: To be perfectly clear, this $70 deal is for the first-gen Moto 360, not the current, third iteration. But it's also not a refurb -- this is a new watch in its original retail packaging and comes with a full one-year warranty. And a leather strap.

Sure, you can definitely get a modern budget smartwatch for about the same price as this Moto 360, but I think there's enough value here to justify the cost that I wanted to bring the deal to your attention. Even six years later, it's still an eye-catching design thanks to the bright display and round watch face (with the small cutout at the bottom). And the WearOS operating system is still solid. You get activity tracking via Moto Body, which helps you keep on top of calories, steps and heart rate. The watch responds to voice commands, and the display is always on, something that took until 2019 for Apple to muster. And hey, it's just 70 bucks. 

Watch this: Moto 360 tries to be the best smartwatch, and doesn't quite get there
