Ive heard it could be as soon as tomorrow but its all speculation at the moment
Moto 360 out in the USA as of today, and will be available in UK early OCT for £200 ($250 in USA)

Will be available from Amazon. Tesco, o2, John Lewis initially.
I'm getting the moto it's out on the play store today but can only buy in the USA for 250 dollars. It's coming out in UK in October for 199 pounds I've got my money saved.

hmmm im not sure now, Im not any means poor, im a teenager with lot of cash from part time work, but £200 just seems too much for a gimmick, phones are this price so why should a little watch which costs them lot less the phones cost, im going to give it a miss as its basically beta testing, would love to own one, but price is very dear, I think they should be around £130 region at most

What a load of tosh? What on earth do you base your costs on? What about all of the R&D, Marketing etc. what you're saying is you can't afford it. Nothing wrong with that, if these were about £400 I'd be in the same boat not being able to afford it / justify the cost. There is cheaper options out there as when launched this will be highly desirable compared to other Android Wear.

I spose, and I can afford it, just cannot justify £200 on something that is so underdeveloped, might just buy the lg g watch second hand around £100 then resell in a couple of months doubt it go down in price that much, Im not sure on the circle on reviews people said it cuts of text and is quite annoying, so annoying we have to wait another months to buy though -.-

That's the problem with technology nowadays. It gets updated so frequently that incremental updates mean a big deal. Part of being an early adopter to new technology (which Android Wear / Smart Watches) fall into is that many of the technologies are young and under developed i.e. batteries.

In the next few increments you'll see more and more things introduced such as GPS, Speakers, Radio Antenna (a mobile on your watch basically), better battery life, higher quality screens, NFC - All of which are available now (apart from decent battery life and NFC?) on separate devices.

They still don't wow me, I want them to as I love new tech but it needs to be useful / essential as opposed to a 'nice to have' with a gimmick factor.

The second hand option is a good route if you're not convinced. I ordered my Samsung Gear Live on the date it was released. 48 hours after it was delivered I had boxed it up and sent it back with absolutely no regrets. I will come back to a smart watch i'm sure of it, just not quite yet...

Why not return it rather than sell it?

True, but a cheap way of finding out if you like it. Try selling via Gumtree or Facebook groups - it'll still be under warranty so that will definitely help when selling.
Expansys are taking pre-orders on the Moto 360.

Whether they will get any for launch day remains to be seen ....
