Moto 360 Announced for $249, Needs to be Charged Twice a Day!

Motorola has finally announced the most awaited smartwatch of the year, the Moto 360. The smartwatch has been one of the most eagerly awaited wearable ever since it was first showcased because of its unique circular design. The watch runs on Android wear and will support Android phones with 4.3 and above.

The watch comes with a  1.56 inch circular display with a resolution of 320 x 290, 205ppi. The display is backlit LCD and has Corning Gorilla glass protection for scratches. It runs on a TI OMAP 3 processor with 512MB RAM and there is 4GB internal storage available.

It also comes with sensors like Pedometer and Optical heart rate monitor (PPG). There is a single button on the right side to turn on or off the display. Moto 360 has been priced at $249 and the initial reviews have been underwhelming. Although when Moto 360 was first showcased months back, it didn’t really have strong competition. But now with LG announcing LG G Watch R running Android wear and also Samsung announcing Gear S, Moto 360 will face stiff competition from other brands.
