Motorola had a few plans up its sleeves before the end of the current year. And as expected, it has executed all of them pretty perfectly. Today, apart from unveiling the brand new Moto G and Moto X handsets, the company has also released its brand new Moto 360 smartwatch.
The new Moto 360 smartwatch, unveiled not long ago, has become arguably one of the most anticipated Android Wear smartwatch. And that has been possible mostly due to its big round screen that actually looks a great upgrade from what we have seen in this industry all this while.
The new smartwatch has already been touted to be quite the useful wearable. Powered by Android Wear, the Moto 360 will offer updates based on location, such as Weather, Time, Reminders, Location, Traffic.
Going through the specs of the new smartwatch, the new Moto 360 is set to arrive in two different variants -- with light stainless steel case and gray Horween leather band, and the other one in dark stainless steel case and black Horween leather band.'
Running on Android Wear, the devices offers a 1.56-inch display with 320x390 pixels and 205ppi. It has a backlit LCD with Corning Goriall Glass 3 protection. The smartwatch weighs in at just 49grams and has a 320mAh battery. It has a single physical button, vibration motor and dual microphones.
It runs on a TI OMAP 3 processor with 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. There's support for Bluetooth 4.0 and is IP67 water resistant. It also offers sensors for Pedometer and optical heart rate monitor.
The new smartwatch from Motorola will be available in the Indian market later this month. Pricing details for the watch have not been revealed, although the launch price in the US is $249 (around Rs 15,000).
