Best Buy Moto 360 Leak

We finally have a reason to thank Best Buy.   According to reports, they accidentally leaked the specifications for the much anticipated Moto 360 android wear smartwatch.  If you are eagerly waiting for the Moto 360 to come out, you have most likely already looked up the specs that were listed on the Best Buy leak.   We are going to list some details of them and compare them to the android wear watches that are already out.  Not all of the specific details are out, so this list may change as more information is released.  The announcement date for the Moto 360 is scheduled for September 4th and the device will most likely go on sale on September 5th or 12th.

So far the devices are only compatible with certain android 4.3 and 4.4 models.  There are currently no plans to make them iOS compatible because of the battle of the smart watches that starts when Apple releases the iWatch.

Based off of specs and pure design, the Moto 360 has to be the clear front runner between all the current generation android wear devices.   A new batch of android wear devices are scheduled to come out in September, so the Moto 360 may only be the go to watch for a month or so before the latest generation hits the scene.  The Moto 360 comes with a premium leather watch band and has a metal bezel, plastic or composite rear with an optical heart rate monitor.  The Qi wireless charging makes it even more attractive to consumers because you can easily pick up an additional charger on Amazon for $7 to $40.  That will make it easy to have one available to keep at your office.  The reported up to 3  1/2 to 1 day of battery life also offers much longer time between necessary charging  significantly less battery life than  the LG G Watch.

See our comparison chart below and let us know if any of the information is not correct.
