Best Buy listing reveals the Moto 360 specs, features and price


Motorola is all set to unveil the Moto 360 in a few weeks from now at an event in Chicago. However, the full feature list, specifications and price of the watch are now known, thanks to Best Buy prematurely putting up a listing of watch on its website.

According to the listing from Best Buy, the Moto 360 will come with a 1.5-inch backlit LCD with a resolution of 320 x 290 (205ppi), and will be protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. The body of the watch case itself will be made of stainless steel while the back will be of plastic.

The feature-list of the watch reveals that the Moto 360 will come with 512MB of RAM, a built-in heart-rate monitor, and will be waterproof for up to 30mins in 3.3′ of water.

The listing also suggests that the Moto 360 will come with a Texas Instrument processor. If true, this will be the first Android Wear powered device to use a non-Qualcomm Snapdragon.

Best Buy lists the Moto 360 for $249, which if true, seems like a fair price for a watch that is filled to the brim with features, and is a step-up from its competition.
