With the launch of Moto 360 (2nd Gen), its predecessor Moto 360 (1st Gen) has gone out of stock from Flipkart. Seems like it has been catching a lot of customers or the marketing folks at Motorola are using a new strategy to push the sales of their latest device. As soon as we finished covering the launch news of the latest wearable, we noticed the Moto 360 (1st Gen) went out of the stock and we were unable to book the smartwatch.

When Motorola announced the Moto 360 last year with its beautiful and unique circular design as compared to the square face smartwatches out there, it received an great response and was among the most loved Android wearable around the globe.
