Motorola Moto 360 Best Buy Leak

Almost every one of us that is interested in Android Wear and smartwatches have been keeping tabs on the Motorola Moto 360. The Moto 360 promises to be the first round faced Android Wear smartwatch, and was teased to come ‘later this summer.’ To that end, today Best Buy put up, then quickly took back down, their listing for the Moto 360, including price and most specs.

The highlights for Best Buy’s Moto 360 listing include a $250 price tag, a 1.5-inch 320 x 290 resolution 205 ppi display, heart rate monitor, waterproofing up to 1 meter, Gorilla Glass 3 on a stainless steel case with leather band that is all powered by a Texas Instruments processor.

Considering all of the additional features and the somewhat premium build, including the round watch face, the $250 price for the Moto 360 seems very much in line in with the $200 and $229 prices for the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch, respectively.

Perhaps the biggest surprise for many is the listed Texas Instruments processor. While TI and Motorola have worked together in the past, most recent Motorola devices have shipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, as have competing Android Wear powered smartwatches. We know that TI has been innovating in other areas of mobile, it will be great to see what they can do in the Moto 360.

We expect Motorola to announce the Moto 360, and hope that they will also start selling the round faced smartwatch, during their press event at their headquarters in Chicago on September 4th. The event should also see the announcement and launch dates of the next version of the Moto X, which has been referred to as the Moto X+1 and the next version of the Moto G, perhaps to be named the Moto G2 or, less likely, the Moto G+1.

I’ll leave you with the Moto 360 specs list as found on the only Best Buy page we can find that hasn’t been taken down yet. But before I do, even though we’ve asked you before, will you be jumping on the Motorola Moto 360 at $250?

    21 minutes ago? I hit you guys up about this earlier today. I actually leaked it

    • Disapproving Grilled Cheese

      You didn’t “leak it.” You just found the page. And you weren’t the only one,

  • Richard Colon
  • Frankie Frankel

    its only 50 bucks more than the gear live and its a million times better, so heck yeah im gonna buy it

  • Shark Bait

    ooooooo i did want this, just a little too much for an impulse buy at that, but I suppose you get what you pay for!
    Cant wait to have a little play with it!

  • Derek Lo

  • Jivon Rodriguez

    They’ve opened the floodgates with that price.

    I will not but I like the watches. I hope I will try motorola one on my wrist. I think it will be lucky smile on my face. I also hope it will become more accessable for me.

  • Charles Bosse

    That sure doesn’t look like a leather band, and wouldn’t that sort of make the water proofing a bit less interesting? Also, in the 21st century are we planning to use bits of dead animal to attach computers to our wrist? I hope it’s rubber.

    Abandon OLED and sapphire glass.. Wots premium build? It has plastic back as well.. Not much different with other smartwatch just round face.. Next year Samsung and lg will release round face smart watch I will wait.. Nothing special tbh..

    Why would anyone buy this? It is totally featureless, aside from Google now.

    I got my Gear for 99 bucks, and with Null rom, and 4 days of battery life (when properly tweaked) it kills all this other garbage. This is going to flop harder than a fish.

    Does the moto have access to the play store? Soundhound? Internet? Camera? Full gmail and mail apps for work? Gallery to view photos? Act as a decent hands-free device when driving? Can you put widgets on the home screen? How about a custom launher? Can you tweak it for greater battery life? Can you pump up the DPI?

    Moto 360 = garbage + waste of money. It should be called the Moto 180…cause I am making a 180 degree turn and leaving this thing in my foot trails.

      Why not use your phone for most of those things, it’s better suited for them. Android Wear is for the quick tasks that would be quicker to use the watch than taking out your phone.
      P.S. There is no reason to have a camera on your watch unless it’s at least 8mp.

    • MSmith79

      Well anyone that wants a round watch and all the features that you mentioned will buy the 360 and root it and install a custom rom within months of it’s release. That same post could have written about the Gear when it was first released too.

  • Cuauhtemoc Sosa

    Having both the gear live and the LG G watch I have to say that the LCD screen (instead of amoled) is a deal breaker for me.

  • crutchcorn

    Dude… Heart rate monitor too! (didn’t believe the rumors before)… LEMME AT IT!
