The Moto 360 was already teased at Google I/O, but the complete list of specs were missing. Motorola’s invite to its September 4th media event hinted they’ll officially unveil the new Android Wear smartwatch, however, Best Buy in the United States has jumped the gun and listed the price point, list of specifications and features.
According to Best Buy, the stainless steel and plastic Moto 360 sports a 1.5-inch circular LCD display with a resolution 320 x 290 (205 ppi), run a Texas Instruments processor (earlier rumours pointed towards a Snapdragon 400), and 512MB of RAM. There is no indication on the battery, only that it is lithium-ion that “provides long-lasting operation.”
Overall dimensions are 1.8 × 1.8 × 0.4-inches and weighs in at 2.1oz (59.5 grams). The Moto 360 is compatible with “most devices with an Android 4.3 or later operating system.” Like most watches, and similar to LG G Watch, the Moto 360 is waterproof up to 3.3 feet for 30 minutes.
The Moto 360 will cost $250 (USD) and we Canadians might see the same price, or just a few dollars more. In the meantime, check out our hands-on of the Moto 360 here.
