There are a lot of mobile fans that are excited for the Moto 360, and apparently Best Buy is included in that group, because today the retailer prematurely put up a product page for Motorola’s Android Wear offering with pricing and spec information.
According to Best Buy, the Moto 360 will cost $249.99, a price that sounds about right for the device. To compare, the Samsung Gear Live costs $199.99 and the LG G Watch is $229.99. In exchange for your $250, you’ll get a Moto 360 with the following specs:
- Compatible with most devices with an Android 4.3 or later operating system: For wide-ranging use.
- Bluetooth 4.0 technology: Enables wireless syncing to select devices for hassle-free connectivity.
- Voice activated: Allows you to use spoken commands to operate the smart watch via the built-in microphone.

All of this information seems to be in line with what a lot of us expected from the Moto 360. Of course, we’ll have to wait for Motorola’s Sept. 4 event before we get the official rundown on the Moto 360, but you’re probably safe to begin counting out your 24,999 pennies now.
