San Francisco, CA, United States (4E) – Motorola’s wearable device, the Moto 360, was announced earlier this year. But it’s not until now that the complete specifications and the pricing of the device have been announced. It was introduced together with the Android Wear platform.

The Moto 360 will hit the shelves with a USD 249.99 price tag and will be available in as early as today, September 5. For the specs-conscious, the wrist computer will have a circular display with 1.56-inch diameter that is treated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The display also packs a 320×290 pixel resolution that gave the device a 205 ppi density.

This 49-gram watch is also IP67 certified which means that it is waterproof for 30-minutes with atmost 1-meter depth of submersion. The Texas Instrument’s OMAP 3 processor ticks inside the watch with the 4GB of internal memory and 512MB of RAM.

The smartwatch will have a built-in pedometer and heart rate sensor. Other features include the dual-microphone, motor vibrations for notifications and wireless charging. Likewise, the device is backed-up by a 320 mAh battery that is pegged to support up to 12 hours of battery life.

The Motorola Moto 360 is powered by Android Wear and is compatible with devices running Android 4.3 onwards.
