We still have to wait a couple of weeks for the official launch of the Moto 360 smartwatch, but it seems thanks to a listing error on Best Buy’s website, we get a little peak of what’s to come. The listing has since been taken down, but some intrepid folks managed to take screenshots for the rest of the world to see.
According to the listing, the watch will cost $250, which directly converted is about £149. I wouldn’t expect the watch to cost that much, though, since US prices tend to come without tax. Taking VAT into consideration and it would make sense for the Moto 360 to cost somewhere within the region of £200. That’s not exactly cheap, but there have been more expensive smartwatches released in the past. The listing also mentions that the watch will include a 1.5-inch 320 x 290 LCD display, a heart rate monitor, and a pedometer. Fairly standard stuff then.
None of this information is official yet, and it could be that Best Buy’s information is totally wrong, but this close to launch its likely that at least some of it is correct. We’ll find out for sure on September 4th when Motorola is expected to officially launch the device.
