Moto 360 Smartwatch Tech Specs

The display is 1.5-inches in size, and it features a 320 x 290 native resolution, which is similar to the likes of the LG G watch and Samsung Gear 2. It is equipped with a heart rate monitor and pedometer for those who are health conscious. The Moto 360 is powered by a TI OMAP 3 processor and has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.

The smartwatch runs on the Android Wear operating system. As per Motorola, the smartwatch will run a full day before it will require charging. Also a wireless charging base ships with the smartwatch so that you just have to drop the watch on its side to have it start charging. To save power, the watch will be dark when you’re not looking at it.

Another good feature is that it is has an IP67 water resistance rating. This means that the watch can survive occasional showers but should not be used when you’re thinking about swimming. Just like other smartwatches, the Moto 360 connects to your smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy. The smartwatch is only compatible with Android 4.3 or higher.

Its $249 pricing makes it more compared to the Pebble but right in line with the Pebble Steel. For those who want a traditional-looking watch, it should definitely appeal to them.

So what are your thoughts on this smartwatch? Is it impressive, or do you think Samsung’s Gear 2 or Pebble is a smarter choice?
