Wearable tech has been in the news a lot lately. Motorola is expected to have a public unveiling of their new Moto 360 smartwatch sometime in early September.

While not much is supposed to be known as of now, a product page from Best Buy was accidentally launched a little too early providing us with a glimpse of what’s to come.

We now know that the Moto 360 will be priced at $250.00, making it slightly more expensive than the other Android Wear smartwatches on the market: the Samsung Gear Live ($200.00) and the LG G Watch ($230).

The Moto 360 has a more elegant design than its competition, sporting a round display with two unique sleek styles, so perhaps the higher price is justified.

Features of Android Wear, its operating system, include:

  • Time
  • Weather
  • Navigation
  • Calendar
  • Messaging
  • Memos
  • Reminders

According to the leaked page, the watch will include a heart-rate monitor, pedometer, Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and a Texas Instruments processor. It will have a 1.5 inch 320×290 screen made of Gorilla Glass 3. Motorola has made the watch waterproof up to 3 feet deep for up to 30 minutes.

The listing has sized the watch at 1.8 x 1.8 x 0.4 inches and should weigh in at 2.1 ounces. It’ll be compatible with Android 4.3 and later. Battery life is expected to be a little over 2 days before needing a charge.
