We are expecting to get official Moto 360 launch details when Motorola hosts press at a September 4 event in Chicago, but Best Buy may have gone ahead and let us in on all sorts of details early. According to a listing on Best Buy’s site for the Moto 360, we could end up paying $249.
The device is also listed as having a 1.5-inch backlit LCD touch screen, with a 320×290 resolution, 205ppi, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Matching up to what we learned from a leak a week ago, we are also seeing mentions of a heart rate monitor, water resistance (up to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes), and an ambient light sensor. On a specs tab, the listing suggests that there is 512MB of RAM, Wireless N connectivity, and a Texas Instruments processor inside.
The size of the watch is 1.8×1.8×0.4-inches and it weighs 2.1oz. The device itself is a combination of stainless steel and plastic, just like we thought.
The listing only mentions that the device is “coming soon.” It falls under SKU 8307143 and model number 00419NARTL.
