Best Buy has accidentally released the pricing of Motorola's upcoming smartwatch Moto 360 running Android Wear.
The smartwatch that is expected to be unveiled on 4 September made a brief appearance along with the specs and pricing, before the e-commerce site subsequently pulled it out. However, DroidLife managed to get a screenshot of the page.
According to the page, the Moto 360 is priced at $249 that translates to Rs 15,100. Its circular face measures 1.5-inch LCD display and features 320×290 pixels of resolution. It also comes with a heart rate monitor and a pedometer. The Moto 360 is powered by a Texas Instruments processor coupled with 512MB of RAM, claims the company.
If this leaked page is to be believed than the Moto 360 is priced almost equivalent to the other two smartwatches - LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live. This also seems contrary to the 'aggressive pricing' that Punit Soni, VP, Product management, Motorola Mobility had been claiming.
However, we aren't surprised with this pricing. At the promotional contest hosted by the company, the official rules listed for the game mentioned the watch costs $249. However, the company stated that the actual retail price at launch may change. Considering the recent track record of Motorola, we expect relatively lower price for the Moto 360.
