So far, people in the tech forums had been talking about new features in smartphones and tablets, and the wearable devices were not heating up the tech rumours in real terms. But with the announcement of Google’s new operating software for wearables – Android Wear – things have turned just 360 degrees.
Google’s one of the reliable partners, Motorola didn’t take much time after the announcement of Google Wear to show off its real plans with a teaser of it upcoming smartwatch Moto 360.
Although Motorola has not divulged much information about the smartwatch running Google Wear onboard, we have got to know some open secrets through a Hangout held by Motorola recently.
According to designer Jim Wicks, who conducted the Hangout and spoke about Moto 360’s features without going too much into it, Moto 360 is going to come with a circular design and Motorola decided on the design to keep the smatwatch’s looks just like a watch.
The watch will be waterproof device, but many people will be disappointed after hearing that it is not going to come with a camera. The device will be able to connect to any Android device running Android 4.3 or advanced version.
The trickiest part of the watch is going to be the battery. Wicks didn’t talk much about the batter and not even said like what kind of charging method Motorola is going to put into Moto 360, but there is really something new which Motorola is going to bring out when the Moto 360 gets unveiled.
Motorola has not said anything beyond this officially, but a report suggests that Moto 360 is going to be equipped with an OLED display covered with a sapphire glass. The report further says that Moto 360 will be charged with magnetic induction wireless charging, the point also makes sense when it has already been disclosed by the Motorola executive that there won’t be any micro USB charging option in the Moto 36o.
Pricing, release date and availability are still kept under the carpet by Motorola, and right now we just have to wait for some more time as Moto 360 has still got so much to show.
