At the end of August, LG revealed their new smartwatch, the LG G Watch, which is quite impressive. Yesterday, Motorola revealed their much anticipated smartwatch, the Moto 360 Smartwatch and it’s a remarkable device that is going to make quite a splash, we believe. Let’s take a closer look at the Moto 360 smartwatch and see what the fuss is all about.
Moto 360 Smartwatch
The Moto 360 smartwatch was announced in March, alongside Android Wear. The most impressive feature that has left people pining over the new device is the rounded design.
The Moto 360 smartwatch has a 1.5-inch screen that has a resolution of 320 by 290 pixels. The only obvious design compromise that Motorola chose to make, over making the device larger, is a black band at the bottom of the display, which is the display driver and the ambient light meter. It does look a bit weird and we hope it won’t bother the eye too much.
The Moto 360 smartwatch is water resistant and measures 46 mm in diameter and is 11 mm thick. It’s not a sleek watch, although it does look pretty sleek. It has 4 GB of internal storage, an integrated hear monitor, a 320mAh batter that is supposed to last all day according to the company and it is powered by a Texas Instruments processor.
Moto 360 smartwatch starts shipping on Friday for $250. We’re happy about the price and the fact that it comes with Android Wear. It will come in a black leather armband or limited-edition gray leather with a suede finish. You can buy it from Google’s Play store and through Best Buy.
In short, the Moto 360 smartwatch looks great; modern, minimalistic and something that most people would be happy wearing around their wrists.
