Whilst we all wait eagerly for more information about the impending launch of Motorola’s second smart watch, Moto 360, which was announced over 2 months ago, reports are emerging that the company will launch the product during Google’s I/O 2014 event on June 25th.
Sources close to the Moto 360 project have told Le Journal du Geek that the smartwatch will make its debut launch at Googles I/O event on the 25th June at the Moscone West conference centre in San Francisco, with the sources also suggesting that the Moto 360 will have a retail price tag of €249 (or around AUD$368.13) with the smartwatch to be sold from early July.
Commentators are stating that with this price tag, it puts the Moto 360 in competition with Samsung’s Tizen operated Gear 2 smartwatches, although the main differences are that the Moto 360 isn’t able to take pictures or make calls.
It is also worth to point out that with this price point, the Moto 360 is also much more expensive than LG’s similarly Android Wear-based smartwatch – the LG G Watch, which will launch in June with an expected price tag of €199 (or AUD$294.24).
It will be interesting to see if Motorola do launch the Moto 360 at Google’s I/O 2014 event. We here at Ausdroid will be bringing you all the news and latest Android & Chrome goodness as it happens at I/O.
