Motorola has already sent out media invites to the tech media for its press event to be hosted on September 4 in Chicago. And, from the invite there are speculations that the firm will be launching a slew of devices including the Moto 360 smartwatch at the event. At this point of time, when the smartwatch’s release date is finalized those at Best Buy have revealed interesting details about the device.
Well, the US retailer has listed the Moto 360 smartwatch for a price of $249.99 along with its complete specifications. According to this listing, the wearable device will arrive with a 1.5 inch backlit LCD carrying a screen resolution of 320×290 pixels layered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for scratch resistance. The other aspects of the smartwatch include a processor from Texas Instruments, 512 MB of RAM, optical heart rate sensor, pedometer, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and ambient light sensor.
Like the other Android Wear based smartwatches, this one will also be compatible with devices based on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and above. It will come with voice actions support and will have a water-proof build despite weighing just 58 grams.
From the price tag displayed on the listing, the smartwatch will cost $249.99 in the US and this appears to be accurate. This pricing is certainly higher than that of the other Android Wear smartwatches, but it should be due to the addition of the stainless steel watch case material.
