The Moto 360 is coming, when? Well, by the end of the US Summer, which could be as late as the 21st of September. Until the actual announcement we haven’t been able to get much information about the Moto 360, but as the launch nears, more details have been coming forth.
Last month, details about the Moto 360 being the first Android Wear device to feature an Ambient Light Sensor – allowing the Moto 360 to automatically control screen brightness based on light conditions – surfaced in a Tech Crunch hands-on video which was taken at Google I/O :
Now, we’re being treated to an almost full review of the Moto 360, which shows quite a few details about the upcoming watch, including a partial list of sensors, which as well as the ambient light sensor, also includes an Optical Heart Rate sensor and Pedometer.
This picture of the rear of the watch also confirms that the watch is manufactured from Stainless Steel and carries an IP67 (water and dust resistance) certification. The watch itself is shown in black with a leather strap, which Mr Gadget confirms is interchangeable. Mr Gadget also advised that the watch gets around 2 days of battery life, compared to his G Watch, which he usually only gets a day of usage out of. The watch will be recharged by the dock seen in the title picture which documents from the FCC have previously proven to be a Qi compatible charger.
There’s plenty more pictures of the Moto 360, and dock, at the source. The next thing we need to see is more from Motorola, which will hopefully be an official announcement which includes pricing and availability details.
Does this whet your appetite for the Moto 360? What are you willing to pay for a Moto 360?
