It took less than an hour after going on sale for the new Moto 360 smartwatch to fly off the virtual shelves. On Friday morning, Best Buy's website, as well as Google and Motorola's online stores, were completely out of the wearable gadget. It's not the first smartwatch on the market, but its round screen and leather band turned some heads when the device was revealed back in March. Despite some tepid reviews — which focused on the watch's limited battery life and its size — the watch looks to be a win for Motorola and Google's Android Wear operating system, which could face competition from Apple if the company unveils its anticipated "iWatch" on Tuesday along with two new iPhones.
