Motorola Moto 360 Smartwatch

Last night there was a short live event for the smart data watch Moto 360 from Motorola, which was presented next to the LG G Watch as the first Smartwatch with the new Android Wear . Not many but at least a few new information was available in this Q&A.

 Housing And Design

Relatively interesting for potential buyers is that the clock is 46 mm in diameter and will only be available in this size at the beginning. There will not be a smaller variant for women, for example. Furthermore, the round housing will not be waterproof but water resistant, which can cause short-term splashing. By the way, you will be able to change the bracelet as you would with many other watches.

Android, Charging, Camera

As expected, the connected smartphone must also be equipped with Android, at least Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is another prerequisite. The clock is obviously loaded by means of induction, at least there is no visible USB port and Jim Wicks did not want anything, but Motorola hangs in the Wireless Power Consortium with it.

A camera is not available. The one holds with Motorola for quite unnecessarily.


Yesterday there were reports from China that the Moto 360 is likely to be very limited. This was not confirmed, but more positive information, however, was not really so. A larger availability is planned, Wicks could not say more. Information about a price is also missing.
