Moto 360 watch price, release date is yet to be officially announced by Motorola. Previous reports suggest that the new smartwatch is anticipated to be released together with the Moto X+1with Google I/0 2014 in June 25 and June 26 for $249. Motorola has clarified that the approximate retail value is for tax purposes and doesn’t necessarily indicate the retail price of the Moto 360. However, recently, a retailer from the UK, Mobile Fun, offers the device as available for preorder for £199. This is approximately $330 or so, an amount higher than the previously expected price.
The Moto 360 is like a watch that acts like a smartphone. Though Motorola is still mum about its specifications, PC Advisor reported that the Moto 360 is expected to be compatible with all Android 4.3 and Android 4.4 phones and tablets that have Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. This means “that the Moto 360 has a wider potential audience.”Online Tech Advisor expects it to be “protected by sapphire glass, a custom-made OLED display, a mostly black watch face screensaver so an OLED screen will help to reduce battery life consumption.”
According to Load The Game, Moto 360 will use “Google’s Android Wear OS and will work like a notification window that will display your latest notification letting users interact with them either by swiping them away or issuing voice command trough Google Now. As its name suggests, the Moto 360 will have a classic, circular face. The device will only sport one button on its side and the screen can rotate allowing it to be worn either on your left or right hand.”
Motorola did not offer more information about its IP ratings but considering that modern devices come with IP67, the Moto 360 might come with the same grade allowing it to survive for 30 minutes under 1m of water.
