Best Buy Leaked Details on Moto 360 Early!
Best Buy appears to have accidentally posted their listing for the Moto 360 this past Sunday! They quickly took the listing down, but we were able to grab a screenshot of it. And probably the best piece of information from this posting is the price. $250! With fear of this “premium” Motorola smartwatch being in the $300-$350 range, this is definitely good news. We also saw that Motorola has went with a Texas Instrument process, a confirmed heart rate sensor and 2 colors (see below). I still haven’t decided which color I will go with.
