It’s expected that we’ll finally get the full rundown on Motorola’s Moto 360 on Sept. 4, but it looks like Best Buy just couldn’t wait that long to share the good info.
Best Buy has launched a product page for the Moto 360, complete with a price and full spec list. The Moto 360 is listed with a price tag of $249.99, which is slightly higher than the $199.99 Samsung Gear Live and the $229.99 LG G Watch. Unfortunately, Best Buy doesn’t have a launch date to go along with that price, simply teasing that the 360 is “coming soon.”
As far as specs go, here’s what Best Buy tells us to expect from Motorola’s Android Wear offering:
- Compatible with most devices with an Android 4.3 or later operating system
