Motorola’s highly anticipated Moto 360 smartwatch is likely to be launched in India next week. Motorola has signed another exclusive tie-up with Flipkart
for its new range of devices in India after Moto G and Moto E. The device is currently listed on Flipkart
as coming soon. The pricing details is also not available.
The watch running on Android Wear OS, offers compatibility with devices running Android 4.3 and higher. The highlight of the device is its circular display. The Moto 360 smartwatch has an elegant design which resembles a classic wristwatch and it features durable materials. The main body is crafted from stainless steel, while the screen is protected by Coring Gorilla Glass to prevent scratches. It sports a 1.56-inch Backlit display and comes with a 320 x 290 resolution that goes up to 205ppi. It also gets a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
At the core of the wearable, it is powered by the TI OMAP 3 processor coupled with 512MB RAM. It also gets 4GB internal memory. For tracking activities, it is fitted with a pedometer and optical heart rate monitor (PPG). The IP67-certified Moto 360 is water-resistant and also supports wireless charging.
The support for voice control makes it easy to get things done, even when your hands are full. Users can send texts, set a reminder, check the weather, and even ask for directions by saying ‘Ok Google’.
The Moto 360 will be competing with the current top-dogs in the smartwatch market – LG G Watch R and Samsung Gear Live. However, the pricing may play a crucial role in determining its fate. Going by Motorola’s track record, we expect the device to be priced aggressively, instead of the rumoured Rs 15,000 price tag.
Besides, news also has it that Motorola has now re-branded its touchless gesture support as Moto Voice. The app has been updated to bring the features found in the second generation Moto X to the original Moto X device.
