Start saving your pennies if you’re planning to buy Motorola’s (NYSE:MSI) Moto 360, the smartwatch expected to sell for $250. Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) has posted a product information page for the Moto 360, which indicates a $249.99 price tag and also lists the smartwatch’s specifications.
Hardware for the Moto 360 includes a processor by Texas Instruments and 512MB of RAM. The product page confirms such rumored features for the Moto 360 as its 1.5-inch backlit LCD touch screen. The smartwatch also includes a heart rate monitor, water resistance and an ambient light sensor, among many other features.
Best Buy’s product page indicates the Moto 360 is “coming soon,” but the public likely won’t know many other details until Motorola’s press event on Sept. 4, where it is expected to showcase several pieces of hardware, including the Moto 360, two new smartphones and a headset of some sort.
The Moto 360 is one of the smartwatches to be powered by Google Inc.’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android Wear software. While Google announced other Android wear watches like the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live at its I/O conference in June, the Mountain View, California, electronics giant could only say of the Moto 360 that it would be released later in the summer.
Currently, the Moto 360 stands out as one of the few smartwatches to feature a round face. Two weeks ago, Italian blogger, Luca Viscardi, the writer behind Mister Gadget shared supposed leaked images of the Moto 360 and said the smartwatch would include a wireless charging capability, a bright display and a heart rate sensor, features that are now listed on the Best Buy product page.
