The price, specs and features of this upcoming smartwatch have been revealed by a Best Buy product page which has been quickly removed. Official launch is expected for September 4.

The Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch should go official early next month, during a press event held in Chicago on September 4. In the meantime, someone at Best Buy pushed the wrong buttons and the product page showing this upcoming wearable went live.

While the Moto 360 Best Buy product page was removed in a timely manner, screenshots can be found all over the Web, so most of the specs and features of this smartwatch are now public. Here they are:

  • Body: stainless-steel case and plastic back, waterproof up to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes
  • Processor: Texas Instruments-made
  • Memory: 512 MB RAM
  • Display: 1.5-inch backlit LCD touchscreen with 320X290 pixels, 205 ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 n, Bluetooth 4.0, voice activated
  • Sensors: pedometer, optical heart rate monitor
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.13 pounds; 1.8X1.8X0.4 inches

The Moto 360 is compatible with devices running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean or later, has a built-in lithium-ion battery and will retail for $249.99 USD. All these are not official yet but should be confirmed on September 4, as mentioned earlier.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
